Goldschmidt Vineyards Wine Tasting with Owner/Winemaker, Nick Goldschmidt
August 12, 2020 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
The Goldschmidt Vineyard label is a program designed to showcase single vineyard source wines from both the Alexander Valley and Napa Valley Oakville appellations. The goal is create wines that highlight the distinct characters, benefits and attributes derived from these site specific harvests. Goldschmidt Vineyards wines are crafted with the best possible resources to achieve exceptional richness, quality and balance. Owner and Winemaker, Nick Goldschmidt will be guiding our VIRTUAL tasting of seven Goldschmidt Wines.
ABOUT NICK GOLDSCHMIDT: Born and educated in New Zealand, Nick Goldschmidt’s career began in 1982 with a research position at the New Zealand Lincoln University, where he graduated with Distinction in Horticulture. In 1989, after 18 months of winemaking in Australia, New Zealand, California, and South America; including his first harvest in Chile as winemaker for Calitera, Nick returned to California with an amazing range of winemaking experiences. In 1998, Nick and Yolyn Goldschmidt, established their own line of wines with the release of Goldschmidt Vineyards. Having produced so many world class wines from around the globe, Nick knew exactly which vineyard sites he would choose to make his wines from. All single vineyard, 100% varietal, handcrafted, small production artisan wines.
