$15 ($5 Club)
He's back! Come meet & taste new releases with winemaker/wizard John Lockwood of Enfield Wine Co., a longtime favorite of ours at the shop and one of the most talented winemakers in California (and if you don't want to take our word for it, The New York Times' Eric Asimov has likewise been singing his praises for years)!
Having trained with some of the most esteemed winemakers in the world (Failla, Littorai, Bodega Melipal in Argentina) John always seemed destined to make waves in the industry. He started Enfield Wine Co. as a small side project while still working at Failla in 2010, and 3 years later, decided to take the plunge and focus on Enfield full-time. His dedication to finding compelling vineyard sites on the fringes of his home base in Napa (and beyond) has earned him a deserved reputation as a producer of some of the most nuanced, exciting wines that California has to offer. The epitome of elegance, John crafts delicate, nuanced masterpieces from vineyards that stretch from Calaveras county to Solano County, from the edge of the Sierras in Amador County to the windswept reaches of far West Sonoma County.
John will be pouring two of his Burgundian-styled Chardonnays, a picture perfect Grenache, one of the finest Tempranillos made in California and the heralded Xb05 Mourvèdre.
