Cline Cellars Virtual Wine Tasting with Winemaker, Charlie Tsegeletos
July 22 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Built on a passion for winemaking and rooted in respect for the land, Cline Cellars is a family-owned and operated winery by Fred and Nancy Cline in Sonoma, California. Their daughter, Megan, and their winemaker, Charlie will be guiding our VIRTUAL tasting of 6 Cline Wines.
ABOUT CHARLIE: Charlie was born to be a winemaker. There was always wine in his Greek/Italian household in northern California, and his great-grandfather made wine in Guerneville in the 1930s. Charlie graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Agricultural Science and Management/Plant Science, and honed his craft at Hacienda Wine Cellars, D’Agostini Winery, and Glen Ellen Winery. Since joining Cline Cellars in 2002, he has created legendary Zinfandels, distinctive Rhône-style wines, and Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, Merlot and Chardonnay.
MEGAN CLINE: Following in the footsteps of Cline Cellars founders, Megan also fell in love with world of wine. After graduation from UC Santa Barbara and completing her Certified Sommelier training, she returned to Sonoma to work at the family winery. For Megan, it was love at first harvest. “I like that wine is so much more than a beverage. It’s a combination of place’s history, geography, people, food, climate, and traditions.”
