We are very pleased that our guests will have this opportunity
Napa, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2012
Napa Valley’s Vine Cliff Winery, a premier winery known for limited-production Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, is excited to announce a new program for consumers to tour the winery and taste wines with winemaker Jim Kress.
“We are very pleased that our guests will have this opportunity,” Rob Sweeney, Vine Cliff Winery’s proprietor and general manager, said. “Jim is a great guy, and what could be better than visiting our tasting room with one of the key people responsible for making them?”
The tours and tastings will be held every Friday at 3 p.m. and will last about 90 minutes. A maximum of 12 guests per week may participate and the cost is $25 per guest. Prior appointments are required. Children and pets are not permitted.
Kress joined Vine Cliff Winery prior to the 2011 harvest. He has 16 vintages under his belt and has previously worked at St. Clement Vineyards and Domaine Chandon. After graduating from the School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University, Jim’s passion for food and wine eventually led him to the Master of Science program in Viticulture and Enology at the University of California, Davis.
“I am excited to have the chance to share our passion with Vine Cliff’s guests,” Kress said. “We’ll check out the production area, kick some dirt in the vineyards, then relax in the caves and try some wines. It should be a lot of fun!”
