Underwritten by Inglenook, the 28th Annual Wine Seminar opened with Cortéz summoning Spain to send vines to plant in Mexico City (Tenochtitlan) as moderator MS Gilles de Chambure prepared us for a morning among wines from as near as Napa and as far away as Chile as we followed the Mission grape from Old to New Spain, and then from Baja to Alta California and the valley of Napa.

We tasted Spanish varieties from Chile (Miguel Torres Chile), Baja California (Bodegas Santo Tomás), Yolo County (Berryessa Gap), and Napa (Hendry); we tasted Los Carneros Pinot Noir and Saint Helena Cabernet Sauvignon (Tres Perlas); and in conclusion, sipped quintessential California Angelica from Sierra Foothills (Capelli Ranch), Cucamonga Valley (Galleano Winery) and Amador County (Harbor Winery) in wineglasses provided from Riedel by Napa Valley Vintners. A superb lunch prepared by Inglenook’s Winery Chef, Alex Lovick and accompanied by wines from Inglenook, a founding winery of NVWLA, concluded our day.

Our special thanks to panelists Corinne Martinez and Nicole Salengo of Berryessa Gap, George Hendry and nephew Michael Hendry of Hendry, Oscar Renteria of Renteria Vineyard Management and Tres Perlas for their time and their wines; and to our keynote speaker, Darrell Corti of Corti Brothers, for his trenchant remarks throughout the day, all ably guided by moderator Gilles.
