Show 577, May 11, 2024: LXV Wine, Paso Robles with Neeta Mittal

Neeta Mittal of LXV Wine

LXV Wine (Paso Robles) is proprietors Neeta and Kunal Mittal’s connection to India. Paso Robles reminds them of India. Roblans have a deep relationship with the earth and with each other. There is an intimacy in the ecosystem in Paso that expresses itself in the grapes, in the winemaking and, ultimately, in the wines.”

“For Neeta It all started in a small town south of Mumbai where her mother lives and regularly visits the local spice market to purchase the fragrant herbs and spices that go into LXV’s handmade Tandoori Masala. LXV is a space where The Kumals bring the flavors from around the world to their tasting table – through wines and through pairings. They have opened up the restrained jargon of pH and acidity of wine, to a more inclusive and experiential conversation of flavors and senses.”

“Being one of the first Indian women to own a winery in the US, that was named in the Top-10 tasting experiences in America by USA Today, comes with a lot of responsibility for Neeta! She answers more questions on Culture than Vintages, on Food than Wine, on Inspirations than Medals.”

“The ultimate goal for Neeta and Kumal is to create a movement that inspires and heightens moments, and that transcends the personal, business and community.”

“Jeff Strekas is the Consulting Winemaker for LXV. Jeff’s pedigree from Napa and Bordeaux style of wine making is a perfect fit for Neeta and Kunal. Jeff is willing to experiment with new varietals and adapt his wine making style to the muses of Neeta with her Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Semillon favorites. He then has to adapt to Kunal and his love for Cabernet Franc! And, in the 2021 vintage, he made a White Sangiovese for Neeta and a Cabernet Franc Rose for Kunal! In the 2022 and 2023 vintages, LXV wine will introduce sparkling!! Blanc De Sangiovese and Blanc De Franc!”

“Visiting the LXV Tasting Room, located in the beautiful Central Coast of Paso Robles, California, is an invitation to dip your toes in the sensory world of wine and flavors. Guests can enjoy their wine tasting in one of three exclusive spaces – the main tasting lounge, the Cellar room, and the outdoor patio offer three distinct areas and three unique experiences for wine tasting.”

Neeta Mittal (Proprietress) is our guest to uncork all that is LXV Wines.
