On this wee's episode of SIP Virtual Wine Tastings with Winemakers we talked with Proprietor Jeff Loomis of Loomis Estate Vineyards in Napa Valley.
Jeff Loomis, founder and vintner of Loomis Estate Vineyards, doesn't like to be told no. When he purchased the majestic mountain property that would become his home and vineyard, he was told he couldn't grow Rhône varietals there. He's had a passion for Rhône wines ever since studying abroad and cycling through Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the South of France.
Today, Loomis Estate Vineyards is the sole Napa Valley producer growing and making wine from 100% Rhône varieties. The grapes are grown on four acres, each of which was chosen for its unique terroir, offering maximum sun exposure, ideal micro-climate and varietal-specific soil conditions. Lead Winemaker Rudy Zuidema and Associate Winemaker Michael Andrews help bring Jeff's vision to life.
Proprietor Jeff Loomis joined us on SIP to tell his story of persistence and tenacity and his new project, a result of the Glass Fire and a unique way to bring positivity to a tough year 2020. We know Jeff's humor and positive attitude will inspire you tonight.
