Wine.com Hosts: Taste of Sonoma's Red Wine Rotation
Join us for a tasting with distinguished winemakers from Sonoma Country, one of the premier wine regions in the world! A nearly infinite array of microclimates provide the magic for Sonoma County vineyards, but every site has the positive benefit of Sonoma County’s overall ideal combination of weather, temperature, fog and rainfall offering the best for production of premium red wine.

In partnership with Sonoma County Vintners, Wine.com host Gwendolyn Osborn will lead this special evening as we taste a Russian River Valley Pinot Noir from La Crema, a Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel from Pedroncelli Winery, and an Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Francis Ford Coppola Winery. We will be live streaming on Thursday, July 29, 2021 at 4:00-4:45pm PDT / 7:00-7:45pm EDT.

Speakers

Craig McAllister
Head Winemaker @La Crema
A New-Zealand native, Craig McAllister spent his first 20 years in Christchurch, New Zealand, then lived in London for six years. He has travelled extensively throughout the world. He found himself drawn not just to the wine industry, but to the wine lifestyle due to his love of cooking, travelling and being outdoors. This led him to Lincoln University in New Zealand, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in viticulture and enology. Craig’s deep passion for winemaking has taken him all over the world, from New Zealand to Australia, Chile and Cyprus. Craig first joined the La Crema team in 2007 as the Harvest Enologist. After gaining additional experience abroad, he joined the La Crema team full-time in 2009. He has been a steward of La Crema’s Monterey program and worked extensively on the Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. He also helped to further develop La Crema’s esteemed collection of single vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines. He was promoted to head winemaker in 2017.

Montse Reece is a native of Spain and earned her degree in enology from the Rovira I Virgili University in Tarragona. She then worked for wineries in the Penedes and Montblanc regions during this time. Once finished with college she came to California and joined the harvest crew at Gloria Ferrer Champagne Caves in Sonoma in 1998. After that she was hooked and held positions at both Ferrari-Carano and Rodney Strong Vineyards. She joined the winemaking team at Pedroncelli Winery in 2007 as assistant winemaker to John Pedroncelli, Winemaker Emeritus. “I consider it an honor to have had the privilege of working with John Pedroncelli for as long as I did,” says Montse. “His passion and love for the vineyards and wines of Pedroncelli will continue to be present in the style and spirit of this winery for generations to come.” Montse was named Winemaker in 2015 and she focuses on the details and unique qualities of each vineyard block.
