Exploring Small CA Wineries - Oct 24

A Sit down wine tasting/education held in the Franklin Liquors wine room.
We will explore three small CA wineries.

The Wineries
Mountain View
From its inception in 1978, Mountain View has produced wines of superior quality. “Mom & Pop” vineyards are chosen from various regions throughout California that offer strong varietal character. Exceptional weather/climate/soil conditions set the stage for our terroir driven Amador County Zinfandel and Pinot Noir from Santa Maria Valley.

Ty Caton
20 years ago Ty Caton partnered with his parents to develop a 108 acre property in the renowned Mayacamas Mountain Range. Located adjacent to some world class vineyards and with an array of various soils, elevations, and sun exposures, it is a prime location for grape growing and now has its own prestigious appellation ~ Moon Mountain District. Only 40 acres of this certified sustainably farmed vineyard are planted to grapes. Ty learned to make wine from his friends, neighbors and practice. He strives for excellence and is an exceptional blender.

Fitch Mountain
Fitch Mountain Cellars started with 1 barrel made in a garage by Mike Duffy, a UC Davis Grad, Trefethen intern, and personal friend of wine guru Andre Tchelistcheff in 1984. Still handcrafted, our Merlot comes from a tiny, 4th generation vineyard in Dry Creek. Reminiscent of the breakout style in the ’80’s, this velvety wine has layers of complexity.

About Judy Lebel
In 2010, Judy Lebel realized the best way to fulfill her passion for enjoying fine wine and great food with interesting people was to go out on her own.
