Wine Women – Bonny Meyer, Perfect Pairing

Silver Oak Cellars would never have existed without Bonny Meyer. Never would’ve happened! But wait, you’re thinking, “Justin Meyer was the winemaker behind this iconic winery.” Whaddya mean? Technically true, but had Justin not met Bonny at UC Davis in the late 1960s, he would have remained the winemaker […]

Wine Women – Be Bubbly Napa Valley

Erin Riley may be Chief Bubblehead now, but before Be Bubbly was born, she had another “child” to attend to. Erin cites her daughter’s imminent departure for college as the impetus for creation of Be Bubbly, Napa’s newest and only sparkling wine bar and shop. As her daughter contemplated […]

Wine Women – The Women Behind Lorenza True Rosé

This dynamic mother-daughter duo was exciting to talk with on this week’s show. First, they have a very unique winery model: Lorenza Wine focuses solely upon producing amazing rosé. No whites. No reds. Just rosé.

Second, they recently branched out into canned Spritz Rosé, which we got to taste. Packaged […]

Wine Women – Laura Barrett, Clif Family Winery

Laura Barrett had a vision of herself stuck in a window-less basement laboratory for many years to come when she was studying chemistry in college. That unappealing forecast drove her to seek out other alternatives to a life in science, in a basement. When someone mentioned enology, she dove […]
