If you haven’t heard of Davis Family Vineyards and are into wine, just give it time, you will! The winery is headed up by the passionate and energetic Guy Davis, who handles all aspects of the wine, from the vineyard to the bottle, and he’s obviously doing many things right as his wines continue to take top awards at regional wine competitions.
The winery is located in California’s Russian River Valley, and the family owns some very old parcels of Zinfandel that were planted back in 1896. They also have some younger hillside vineyards planted to Pinot Noir, Syrah and Chardonnay and they purchase some Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from friends. I’ve had the chance to taste a few of the wines, and I am convinced that the prices are more than fair considering the quality of the wines……….not cheap, but not ridiculously expensive.
We’re excited to welcome Guy to Asheville and to Table Wine for a very special Friday Winedown on Friday, July 20 from 5 to 7 p.m. The cost for the tasting is $10/person or just $8 if you’re a Grape Nut, and light palate cleansers will be served. You’ll get to taste several wines and meet the winemaker at this informal, walk around tasting. We will bring in a few bottles of each of the wines, but this will mainly be a pre-sell event, and all wines will be offered at a 20% discount by the bottle.
The lineup of wines will be announced in the next week or so, but if I were you, I’d plan to make this one. These are truly delicious and exciting wines.
