TASTE OFF: Italy vs. Spain
- Food & Drink
- Boston Wine School, Allston MA
In many ways, Meadowcroft wines represent the best of both California wine worlds. Tom Meadowcroft makes small-lot Chardonnay and even smaller-lot Viognier in Sonoma while at the same time growing killer Mt. Veeder Cabernet in Napa. They say Carneros is where Napa and Sonoma come together -- it's actually Meadowcroft.
Join wine maker Tom Meadowcroft at the Boston Wine School for a special master class plus dinner. You'll taste a comprehensive range of wines with the wine maker right there to tallk you through the work, explain the wine making in detail, and most importantly, tell the stories behind the wine.
In 2008, Tom's Mt. Veeder Cab was voted Top 100 Wines by Wine Enthusiast magazine, and won a 91-point rating from Wine Spectator magazine.

"My passion for wines comes from my experiences growing up, working and traveling in Europe and the United States. Early in life, I started my journey in winemaking by working the harvest of 1979 in Bordeaux. Later in life, I worked at wineries in Washington and Napa, attended UC Davis and Napa College, and then became a vineyard manager focused on sustainable farming and environmental advocacy. Managing dozens of properties for the top wineries in Napa and Sonoma taught me the principles of winegrowing and gave me a vision for the kinds of wines that I make today."
