Event Summary

Hosted at Ned and Vivian MacDonald's beautiful Bennett Valley Ranch, members gathered to sample the wines from five up and coming California winemakers - Breathless, Ceja, Guyomar, Italics, and Pfendler. The afternoon started next to the foundation of the property's historic winery where we met the wineries and learned about the history of the property. The group then grabbed their glasses and headed down to the big barn where each winery poured a selection of their wines while members mingled and enjoyed fresh tacos accompanied by the music of Frederick Hodges.
