On Friday, June 3rd, 2016, we are pleased to introduce you to VML Winery and the passion that winemaker Virginia Marie Lambrix pours into every bottle.
It’s an honor to feature wine from such a knowledgeable and committed winemaker whose ‘principals of respecting nature and nurturing ecology within the vineyard made sense in both a scientific framework and on an intuitive level.‘ If you are new to VML Winery, their specialty is Chardonnay and Pinot Noir but they also enjoy producing Gewürztraminer, Zinfandel, and Syrah.
“VML’s Single Vineyard wines are meant to capture the imagination by highlighting unique and beautiful pieces of terroir within the Russian River Valley. Virginia explains that the beauty of wines from the Russian River Valley is how they reflect the specific vineyard sites. The winemaker should stay out of the way of what the terroir expresses – guiding the fruit and resisting the temptation to manipulate the wines. The wines at VML let the vineyard sources speak for themselves. Despite the trend to tone down Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs, a force of nature in our vineyards delivers wines that are big, bold, and full-flavored.”
Join us for an exceptional evening with 5 courses of VML wines that are paired with a custom menu prepared by our Chef de Cuisine Michael Harkenreader. We will be welcoming you in our private dining room, the Wagner Room, so seating is limited.
