Wine Down Wednesday Reception with Winemaker Alan Viader
Wednesday, August 21, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM (PDT)
Taste Viader's new release of the 2012 DARE Wine with Winemaker Alan Viader
Wednesday, August 21 at 5:30 pm
Having spent his childhood on the VIADER Estate, Alan's love for this unique terroir was augmented by both his viticulture studies and his harvest experiences abroad at estates like Achaval-Ferrer in Mendoza, Argentina. Alan has been managing the vineyards at VIADER since 2002, and has worked in all areas of the cellar and the vineyards. Today, as Director of Operations, Alan oversees the production of Viader wines from start to finish. Alan makes the winemaking decisions together with his mother, Delia, each bringing his own ideas to the table, and because their core values are in sync, they make a wonderful mother-son winemaking team.
On Wednesday, August 21st at Lucy Bar join Alan for a reception to taste Viader's currently release of their 2012 DARE (100% cab franc). The tasting will be paired with creative, garden fresh bites from Lucy's executive chef, Victor Scargle.
