Show 316, March 23, 2019: Winemaker Jeff Pisoni, Pisoni Vineyards, Lucia and Lucy Part Two

Jeff PisoniWinemaker Jeff Pisoni continues…

The Pisoni family’s goal: grow exceptional grapes to make exceptional wine. Wines made by the Pisoni family are bottled under the Pisoni Estate and Lucia labels. Gary and his two sons, Mark and Jeff, farm and produce Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah from their three vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands: Pisoni, Garys’ and Soberanes vineyards. These vineyards and wines represent an extreme commitment to farming and classical winemaking.

Lucy is the charismatic younger sister of Lucia Wines, a celebrated label that represents a collection of vineyards run by the renown Pisoni Family. In 2003, making her limited debut in just two precious barrels, winemaker Jeff Pisoni immediately knew he had crafted something exceptional. More than a decade later, the tradition of providing the utmost care and attention to the exquisite rose’ carries on. Only a limited amount is produced each year, and $1 per bottle is donated to breast cancer research.”

Jeff’s vivacious wife, Bibiana Gonzalez Rave, is also an acclaimed winemaker. Her labels are Alma de Cattleya and Cattleya Wines. We’ll meet her on the April 20th’s show.
