We are beyond thrilled to be featured in the Corti Brothers holiday newsletter. It is such a huge honor to receive such high praise from a wine expert such as Darrel Corti. Mr. Corti writes, “The Lepiane Nebbiolo 2013 is to my mind the most expressive and best varietally typical nebbiolo wine I have tasted in California. It has the proper deep red, not black color; a fragrant aroma, of berries and tar, typical of nebbiolo with the violet character called “goudron” so seldom found in this varietal. There is the austere character typical of nebbiolo that is even now beginning to soften and show its harmonious side. L.A. Lepiane was the name of Alisons’s great grandfather, also a California winemaker. This wine is a wonderful remembrance. If this 2013 wine is an example, Alison Thomson will go far in winemaking in California.”

Building a profitable wine brand is notoriously difficult. But if you really want to roll your rock uphill, then start with a finicky and tannic Italian grape like nebbiolo, which requires a scientist’s attention in the cellar and then a monk’s patience once in bottle, often taking more than four years to go from grape to sellable glass of wine.
I had the pleasure of sitting down for a conversation and tasting with Laurie Jervis, a local writer and wine enthusiast. Here is a link to the article about L.A. Lepiane Wines.
