Unlike Chalone Vineyard in October, and Nalle Winery in November, Schramsberg is not new to the Diablo Tasters Guild. Vice President of Marketing, Laurent Sarazin presented Schramsberg in December 2011, and was scheduled to present in December 2002, but had to have a substitute presenter on that occasion, as his daughter was being born. This year, when asked if he would like to participate again, he agreed, with the caveat that we feature the "good stuff". So, the J. Schram "tete-du-cuvees" and the Davies still wines will be prominently featured. I would like to point out that on our "field trip" to Napa in August, the wine that was purchased most by members of all the offerings on the day was the Davies Pinot Noir.
