It was a beautiful October afternoon when we took our Clos de la Tech wines to the Carneros Inn in the Napa Valley. It was a great opportunity for us to introduce our handcrafted Pinot Noirs from the Santa Cruz Mountains to a whole new audience, right in the heart of California’s incredible wine universe!

Our guests had a chance to taste Domaine Lois Louise (named after TJ’s mother)—a fragrant, fruit-forward, dark-colored, California-style Pinot—and Domaine Valeta, Sunny Slope, which is lighter in body, has a floral perfume bouquet with clove and citrus overtones and black-fruit—what the French would call “feminine.”

This event offered the rare opportunity to meet with T.J., Owner and Winemaker, and Rex Geitner, Vice President of Wine Growing, to talk about and learn about the remarkable care and dedication it takes to make these incredible wines, including our flagship wine, Domaine Du Docteur Rodgers.

In fact, we brought in a film crew to capture the event. I invite you to take a look at the video, because in two minutes you’ll discover why Clos de la Tech Pinot Noirs are so very special.
