Visiting Vintner: Kevin Kelley of Natural Process Alliance & Salinia Wines
Kevin, a graduate of UC Davis, is a winemaker who has built up his reputation working with various vineyards and wineries around the Sonoma area. He is part of a growing number of winemakers that have become disenchanted by the precepts of international style winemaking: heavy oak, extraction, innoculated yeasts, too much fruit etc. As Kevin saw it, what has been missing in America was any type of “fresh wine” or wine that is bottled and meant to be consumed young, often straight from the barrel or tank and into whatever container is available. Come meet Kevin on Thursday, November 29th from 6-9pm. Check back to see which of his wines we will be featuring that week!
