VINEYARD NOTES:


WINEMAKER - Kestutis Vizgirda

Kestutis "Gus" Vizgirda believes the secret to good winemaking begins in the vineyard. That's why throughout the growing season you will find him touring the rows of varietals and envisioning the kinds of wines he will produce from the harvest.  For over two decades, Vizgirda has worked at several local wineries, working with some of the Valley's best winemakers to refine his craft. Today, he has developed his own unique approach to making wine and has won gold medals for several of his varietals.

In addition to serving as Wilson Creek's Winemaker, Vizgirda teaches wine classes at Mt. San Jacinto College and San Diego State University Extended Studies campus. He is also a judge at several local and international wine competitions.


REVIEWS:

Wine Club Member Patti Matz:

This wine takes me back to hiking in the tropical rain forests of Kauai, Hawaii.  While trudging through the tropical fruits I take in the aromas of pineapple and honey.  As I make my way to the beach, I am overwhelmed by mango.  Surfing always brings pineapple notes to my mind, so does this wine.


Wine server Bryan's favorite Pick: "Now that the weather is warming up, the Roussanne is the perfect combination of citrus and floral notes which combine to make it a super refreshing choice for a glass...or bottle! Due to it being crisp but not overly sweet, I think this wine pairs well with a warm day on the porch or sitting poolside."
