The five extraordinary wineries and vintners highlighting both the Vintner Dinners on May 6 and the Grand Tasting on May 7 at this year's BOCA BACCHANAL include:
Château La Nerthe – Christophe Bristiel
Château La Nerthe is located in the heart of the Provence region in Southeast France, and its cellars date back to the 16th century. It produces very complex wines with delicate aromas. The Chateau's Commercial Director Christophe Bristiel is a Certified Sommelier who helped set up a boutique winery in Chile before assuming his current position in 2009.
DAOU Vineyards – Chris Baker
Wine-loving brothers Georges and Daniel Daou discovered what would become known as DAOU Mountain, an untapped world-class terroir in the Adelaida District of Paso Robles. Ever since, they have poured their souls into creating some of California's most noteworthy wines. DAOU Vineyards Senior Vice President Chris Baker progressed from running a fine dining restaurant to representing a wine company with a dedication to producing world class wines with an uncompromising commitment to quality.
Silver Oak & Twomey Cellars – Tim Duncan
Napa Valley's Silver Oak began over a handshake between two friends with a bold vision: focus on one varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon, aged exclusively in American oak and worthy of cellaring for decades to come. In 1999, Silver Oak established Twomey Cellars in Northern California to craft wines from new varietals and dynamic vineyards. Tim Duncan, son of a Silver Oak co-founder, develops business strategies for both wineries and oversees domestic and international sales.
