Tim Porter from Porter Family Vineyards (Fri. July 1st)

We LOVE Porter Family Vineyards. And over the years we have sent many of you to visit them in Napa because their luscious, full-bodied cabernets and cab/syrah blends knock the socks off of most Napa wine houses, and they are the nicest people!  Friday, from 5-7:30 we will be hosting Tim Porter. He will be pouring five of the Porter Family Vineyards Wines:

  • 2013 Chardonnay
  • 2012 Irreverence Merlot
  • 2012 Sandpiper Merlot/Cab Blend
  • 2012 Cave Dweller Cabernet/Syrah Blend
  • 2012 Porter Cabernet

The very scientific Porter family has combined their love for sciences and land in Porter Family Vineyards. The vineyard is located in the Coombesville AVA of Napa Valley.  They make small amounts of beautiful hand crafted wines.  Tom and Beverly Porter met while working at IBM. Tom was an electrical engineer for IBM, he patented the technology for the floppy disk and when he became the VP of Product development for Seagate Technologies in San Franciso, he purchased the vineyard in Coombesville. Since then, the project has become a family affair! Currently their son Tim (formerly a Computer Scientist with double master's degrees in Computer Science & Financial Economics), daughter Heather (Zoologist) and son-in-law Steven Wolfe (Rocket Scientist) all work at the family vineyard.
