Join Inside Wine SB for a terrific "insiders" tasting with Kris Beverly of Civilization Wine Co.

Winemaker Kris Beverly of Civilization Wine Company grew up in a family that fermented wine from grapes and fruit. He went on to work with local wine producers, including Costa de Oro, Sanguis, Grassini Family Vineyards, Margerum, Avisa Wine Design, Presqu'ile, Clendenen-Lindquist Vintners, and Bevela Wines, before starting his own label.

We'll meet at Kris's winery in Lompoc at 11:30 am for a winery tour and talk on vinification. Lunch is included plus the optional dessert competition where the winner by majority vote is gifted a bottle of Civilization Wine Company wine, courtesy of Inside Wine SB.

Wine critic Matt Kettman is a Contributing Editor for Wine Enthusiast and the Senior Editor for our local Independent newspaper. When he wrote about the Garagiste Wine Festival in February, Kris was one of the winemakers he selected to highlight.
