NTL: Santa Lucia Highlands – Virtual tasting




About the Experience:

A panel discussion from the Santa Lucia Highlands Wine Artisans, a top tier, grape growing region with dynamite wines and exceptional people behind them.  The discussion will include an overview of the appellation, the vineyards and the behind the scenes, hard-working winemaking teams of the area.  Why is SLH so special and why should we have those wines in our glass today?  You will hear from a winemaker, wine grower and winery owner from the area to discuss the cool climate, coastal region and all it has to offer.  We will celebrate the region's reputation for excellent wines and quality growers while sipping on some of the finest wines from the area.

Panelists:


Jeff Pisoni, Winemaker, Pisoni Family Vineyards

Jeff Pisoni is the winemaker for Pisoni Family Vineyards. Jeff works alongside his brother, Mark, vineyard manager, and their father, Gary—the “burgundy-crazed” visionary who planted Pisoni Vineyards in 1982, helping to establish the reputation of the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation. 

Jeff found his calling to wine early in life as he spent his childhood immersed in the family’s farm and vineyards. He earned his enology degree at the age of twenty-one and gained experience at other wineries before re-joining his family business. Jeff is driven by the interaction of farming and winemaking and strongly believes in hands-off style of winemaking that is led by native yeast fermentations and working with small vineyard blocks to best express a given site. 






Annie Lee, Viticulture, Morgan Winery


Jason Smith, Grower, CRU Winery 

The Santa Lucia Highlands is a small but mighty wine-growing appellation in Monterey County that cultivates California’s best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. With generations of family farming, innovation and sustainability as our legacy, our growers and vineyards have earned their place among the state’s most prestigious names for appellation and single-vineyard cool-climate varieties. 

Join the vintners and growers to taste three wines and explore one of California's most revered coastal growing regions known for exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, understand how the region's wind shapes the wines and catch up on the 2024 growing season.
