My favorite was Vintner’s Collective, housed in the city’s oldest commercial building, an 1875-built brewery and, later, a saloon and brothel. Here visitors can sample 18 wineries, some of which release wines in remarkably limited quantities (as few as 75 cases) and high prices (up to $75 a bottle). For novices, it’s a chance to sample expensive, obscure wines.”
The featured winery on my last visit was Vinoce Vineyards
The Nuss Family is deeply rooted within the Napa Valley area, raising their children in local schools, and contributing greatly to the tradition of fine winemakers in the region. Brian and Lori Nuss have achieved their dream of building a successful family-owned winery in one of the most exclusive regions in the Napa Valley. Through their hard work and contributions to the winemaking region, the local community, and their family, they have added to the integrity and pride of the region.
Brian and Lori Nuss have made their home in the Mt. Veeder Appellation for over 20 years. Brian and Lori’s love for fine wine commmenced with the planting of grapes in the mountainous terrain 12 years ago. Cultivating and caring for their grapes has been a passion for the couple.
Brian and Lorie offered tasting of there,
Sauvignon Blanc 2010 : (100% Sauvignon Blanc)
A beautiful combination of fruit, elegance and rich textures makes this a delightful drinking Sauvignon Blanc. This wine shows bright clean notes of grapefruit, herbs, orange peel and honeydew melon which comes together into a medium bodied food friendly wine.
This wine was a fantastic pairing with the Hog Island oysters being served by Hog island for the Vintner’s Collective Club Members and there Guest.
