We were genuinely excited that Californian winemaking legend Greg Brewer (Brewer Clifton / Melville Vineyards) recently visited the UK. As part of his visit Greg agreed to host a very special tutored wine dinner exclusively for Genesis Clients.
The tutored wine dinner was hosted at The Commander in Notting Hill, showcasing the wines of both Melville Vineyards and Brewer-Clifton wineries of Santa Barbara County, USA.
Greg has been at the fore-front of the Californian wine industry for some time now (with Wines & Spirits Magazine donning him one of the “Winemakers to watch in the 21st Century”). He predominantly produces Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (with a touch of Syrah and Viognier for you Rhône lovers), focussing on a more terroir driven, Burgundian approach to winemaking, a far cry from the over extracted, Cabernet dominant growers of Napa and Sonoma.
The dinner was a great success, with all in attendance leaving with a beaming smile and a greater understanding of Gregs unique approach to winemaking.
