Bernard Cannac, consultant winemaker, Lisa Julian Cannac, assistant winemaker, and Theresa K. Dilworth, Esq., owner and winemaker of Comtesse Therese Winery before our tasting began.
It's not every day that you get to spend an entire evening with the people that make some of your favorite local wines.
I'm lucky enough to say that it happened to me and Nena on Saturday night.
After a quick tour of Premier Wine Group (the custom-crush winemaking co-op where they make their wine) and her vineyard, Theresa Dilworth, owner and winemaker of Comtesse Therese, hosted a tasting of their new releases...inside an old house she's rennovating and turning into a wine country bistro.
I'm working on a column about the exeperience, so I won't let the cat out of the bag too much...but we had a spectacular time. And, we got to taste the first releases of two different wines (along with the new releases of several others). We also got to share some amazing cheeses and cured meats as well.
It's rare to find wineries where you like EVERY wine on the list.
For me, Comtesse Therese is one such winery.
