1 finish my studies in 1996, then i spent 5 month in the Sonoma area (Sonoma Cutrer) and from 1998 to nowadays I am in a senior winemaker position in a 10 millions bottles/ year winery.
nice to speak with you
The Quality was Outstanding! The Quantity was extremely low because of the Spring Frost. (It took a lot of hand work to get from point a to point b!) Here on Wood Road we are about 30+ feet higher than on River Road to the north & Piner Road to the south & it has been over 30 years since frost has had a serious impact "up" here.
We are a marketing, branding and distribution company for small to medium sized wine producers, new and old world, specializing in the Asia-Pacific region. We also have global contacts and can penetrate these markets as well, though that is not our immediate focus.
That's awesome! Where are you now? Things are somewhat the same as they were although more tourists looking for excellent Pinot Noir on Sebastopol. Im headed towards Jaspers this evening for a pint although there is a new brewery in town called the Hop Monk which is great. Check it out the next time you're in town.
Wow, that is a lot of wine! I met one of the winery owners from Alsace awhile back. It was an older winery from the region, he and his father have the same name I think. The father only spoke German and the son spoke French, German and English. Must be an interesting region. Sweet white wines.
