About the Wine Hosts
Brooks Note Winery is a small, family-owned winery, focused on making wines with elegant structure and balanced acidity, that demonstrate ripeness and intensity of flavor. Featured at the June 7th event will be their 2019 Pinot Noir from the Petaluma Gap and a 2021 North Coast Rosé, containing 95% Petaluma Gap grapes.
Fogline Vineyards, owned by Evan Pontoreiro, a founding member of the Petaluma Gap AVA, and his partner, Brent Bessire, is known for luscious, small-lot, world-class Pinot and Chardonnay, as well as Syrah and Zinfandel, with all fruit grown above the fog-line, primarily in the Petaluma Gap.
Montagne Russe Wines (the French term for ‘roller coaster’) was launched by Kevin Bersofsky in his Napa Valley garage in 2006. After being cited by Federal authorities for making too much excellent wine, he and his crew set their sights on creating the next cult wine label. Montagne Russe specializes in cool-climate Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah, primarily from vineyards in the Petaluma Gap.
Light of Day Wines is a family owned and operated winery making wines that speak of place and time, from the ground to the glass, farmed with environmentally responsible practices. Our winemaking style focuses on minimal intervention while guiding the wine into the bottle. The Petaluma Gap provides a beautiful and unique place for farming and crafting wines. We are thrilled to share our journey with visitors at the winery or through a glass shared with friends around a home table.
