Jacuzzi Family Vineyards), and I remember quite enjoying it. So imagine my surprise when I spotted a homemade version at the 33rd annual Home Winemakers Classic which was held yesterday at the Charles Krug Winery. Made from grapes grown in the Dunnigan Hills AVA, it was very nice wine (I believe it won best of show). I also like the label. Well, the 'Friendly Lion' on the label.
There were a couple of other reds I liked; a Nathan Cellars, 2013 'Beth' (Napa Valley AVA) and a Bunnell Family Vineyards, 2013 Cuvée (Atlas Peak AVA). The white wines were all pretty dreadful.
As is our wont, Vinomaker and I bid on a wine-lot in the silent auction (which is always a feature of the event. All proceeds go to the Dry Creek-Lokoya VFD). We limited ourselves to just one lot, and we won it; four 750ml bottles of Pott, 2013 '20M3' Stagecoach Vineyard, Viognier (Napa Valley AVA). Haven't tried it yet - that's a future post, perhaps.
