A Special Event with Morgan Twain-Peterson MW, and Ulli Stein

Join us for a special tasting event featuring two of the world's top wine producers. California's Bedrock Wine Co. and the Mosel's Ulli Stein craft dynamic wines from some of the oldest, own-rooted vines in their respective viticultural areas, and we'll be tasting through a variety of these bottlings. If you find yourself wondering what Bedrock's bold, Golden State-based wines have in common with Stein's chiseled beauties, we're fortunate to have both proprietors on hand to share their knowledge and experience while you taste.

Vom Boden importer Stephen Bitterolf writes, "Stein and Peterson have dedicated much of their professional careers to working with (and thereby preserving) own-rooted vines. There are few people on earth with both the practical experience in the vineyard and the scientific expertise. Stein received his PhD in biology from Geisenheim University in the 1970s; Peterson grew up among old-vines with his father Joel Peterson (the founder of Ravenswood) and received his MW in the fall of 2017. While their individual environs couldn't be more different - from the steep cliffs of the Mosel to the arid climates of CA - we believe these differences should only serve to clarify the attributes that make own-rooted vines so compelling."
