Let’s talk wine.
As the colder season envelops us, we find ourselves with a bit more time for reflection, appreciating the countless gifts that surround us. It’s a season that allows us to pause and acknowledge the collective effort that makes our jobs possible, a collective that teaches us, opens their doors, and delivers beautiful experiences to our cherished guests.
My husband and I are in the business of curating unforgettable experiences, continually refining our lists of wineries to include in the itineraries of both new enthusiasts and seasoned connoisseurs. Our goal is simple: to make every visit to Napa an extraordinary one, planting a seed of curiosity and a profound love for superb wines that beckons you back time and time again.
When we come across greatness, we can’t help but share it, which brings me to our dear friends at Grassi Wines, and in particular, their extraordinary viticulturist, Miguel. Before I delve into Miguel’s impressive achievements, it’s essential to emphasize that above all, Miguel is a friend and a family man. We feel incredibly fortunate to know him.
Much like myself, Miguel arrived in Napa as an immigrant at the tender age of thirteen, embarking on a journey that led him to toil in the fields, much like many of us did. Against all odds, Napa, with its unique magic and spirit of collaboration, has welcomed countless sons and daughters who, through their adoption of this land, have come to realize the American Dream. Miguel’s journey is a remarkable one, and Wine Enthusiast captured it beautifully when they named him Viticulturist of the Year in 2020. You can read more about his inspiring story here: Miguel Luna
Now, let’s shift our focus to Grassi and why I’m eager to introduce you to their wines . Nestled between the Stags Leap District to the south and Coombsville to the north, Grassi resides within the heart of the Napa Valley AVA. The land where their grapes thrive presents a unique challenge to the vines, limiting their vigor and yielding fruit with extraordinary flavor. Exceptional grapes, guided by an exceptional man, translate into extraordinary wines. This has led Grassi to be recognized by Robert Parker as a favorite under-the-radar producer in Napa. Maayan Koschitzky, their winemaker, is a maestro of his craft. Having honed his skills with renowned names like Screaming Eagle and Dalla Valle, Maayan works his magic on Grassi’s harvest, transforming it into pure palate-enchanting elixirs.
We can connect you with Grassi and help you secure limited allocations of their very special wines. We believe your private cellar will be better for it.
