About: Neyers Vineyards Tasting @MetroWines
Join us on Thursday, November 14th from 5 to 6:30 for a tasting of Neyers Wines "on the house" @MetroWines. The tasting will be hosted by Laurence Vuelta!
After a hugely successful tasting with Neyers Wines earlier in the year, MetroWines has invited the winery back to present their wines for the holidays.
"Neyers is said by many to offer the quintessential wines for Thanksgiving," says Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines. "And if you have not been to a tasting with Laurence Vuelta, you have NOT been to a tasting!"
All wines poured will be offered at an event price.
In 1999, we purchased and renovated a winery on a thirty-acre parcel in the Sage Canyon area of Napa Valley. Over the next 14 months we built the modern, highly functional winery designed for our traditional winemaking practices. We produced our first vintage in this state of the art facility in 2000. In 2002, Wine and Spirits Magazine named Neyers Vineyards the Artisan Winery of the Year.
Neyers Vineyards sits in the heart of the Napa Valley but Bruce’s experience with French wine importer Kermit Lynch has had an undeniable influence on our wines. Many of the French producers Bruce works with farm organically, make their wines naturally without use of cultured yeast or laboratory designed malo-lactic starter, and bottle their wines without fining or filtration. We like their results and utilize many of their ideas.
Our barrels are made in France, to our specifications, from wood that we buy in bulk and air dry for three years, two years longer than normal. All of our grapes are picked by hand, into small bins that hold only one-half ton. They are then laboriously hand sorted and inspected at the winery. Grapes that require travel of more than thirty minutes to our winery are delivered in refrigerated trucks.
Our wines are aged with as little intervention as possible, and in most years we bottle our wines with neither fining nor filtration, using a state of the art mobile bottling line. No expense has been spared in our grape growing, winemaking practices, or processing equipment, yet customers repeatedly tell us that our wines represent great value in today’s highly competitive wine market.
