Jodi Bronchetin, PRESS Restaurant Sommelier and Napa wine expert, uncovers the mysteries that lie beneath the cork of some of our favorite vintages going back to 2009. How has the color changed? Are the tannins still intact? Jodi and Winemaker Todd Graff guide us through these questions and more as we delve into the vast world of aged wine. View recorded tasting below.

Winemaker and General Manager, Todd Graff, and Advanced Sommelier at Press Napa Valley, Jodi Bronchstein took a dive into the 2009, 2011. and 2013 vintages of our flagship Winston Hill wine.

While Todd experiences each vintage by walking the vineyards and filling tanks and barrels, Jodi analyzes the final product in order to create the perfect “marriage” between wine and culinary delights. The two experts brought different perspectives to the table and made effortless conversation that could have lasted well over our allotted hour. The enthralling dialogue, moderated by Director of Hospitality Liam Gearity, taught us about the importance of timing tannins, the effects of rain on a growing season, food and wine pairings, and much more.
