Masia de Yabar – Temecula Old Town Opening

Wilmer and Carlos are both natives of Perú, while Waleed was born in Lebanon. Wilmer and Carlos both practice dentistry, but in 2003, Wilmer planted roughly 75 acres of Malbec in Argentina. They met Waleed at the DePortola location and came up with the idea of opening a tasting room in Old Town. Like the De Portola location, the Old Town location will offer not only wine, but live music and food, too.

Wine At Sea – A Week Aboard Holland America’s ms Eurodam (1-26 update)

We were blessed to have winemaker par excellece Don Reha sailing with us. Don is the Executive Winemaker at both Thornton and Orfila Wineries and he presided over the first of several wine tastings scheduled for the week. We tasted Thornton’s non-vintage Brut Reserve Methode Champenoise Sparkling Wine, Sans Oak Chardonnay, Cabernet-Merlot and finally the incredible Estate Syrah, accompanied by a selection of fruit and cheeses.
