As we dig deeper into our month-long discussion of sustainability, Host David Wilson put one very acclaimed Napa winery on his MUST-VISIT bucket list. Cakebread Cellars is one of those premium wineries that simply does not disappoint. They are the embodiment of winemaking perfection. You see the label and it really doesn’t matter what varietals are in the bottle. It will be a delicious wine. They always have been.
Not only does Cakebread Cellars make some of the finest wines in the world, they do it with a reverence for the land that is simply uncompromising. As a result, they have received countless awards and accolades for all that they do to constantly protect and even improve the land that produces such extraordinary grapes for them.
To share the Cakebread Cellars story is Toby Halkovich, Director of Vineyard Operations. There won’t be a test at the end of this very interesting conversation but regardless, you’re going to learn a heck of a lot about one of the most celebrated brands in American Wine!
Finally, before we put a cork in it for today, Sara Schneider, Wine Editor of Sunset Magazine tells us everything you need to know about “CORKED” wine. If that statement confuses you, then you definitely want to listen in on a conversation about one of wine’s most misunderstood maladies.
