Klinker Brick Wine Tasting with Farrah Felton-Jolley
August 18 @ 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Steve and Lori Felten, fifth generation grape growers in the Lodi region, continue the tradition of cultivating “Old Vine” Zinfandel vineyards that their ancestors planted in the early 1900’s. The Felten Family own and manage fifteen individual vineyard blocks of “Old Vine” Zinfandel that range in age from 40 to 120 years old. They continue to produce wine from all of the vineyard blocks, culling only the very best lots for bottling Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel and designated vineyard wines. Farrah Felton-Jolley, will be guiding our VIRTUAL tasting of six Klinker Brick Wines.
ABOUT FARRAH FELTON-JOLLEY: The namesake of Klinker Brick Farrah Syrah, Farrah’s parents are the owners/founders/vineyard managers of Klinker Brick. Farrah joined the winery in 2009 after graduating from the University of the Pacific with a degree in Business Administration. With a passion for grape growing, organic gardening, cooking and a love for wine, it was only natural that she would join the family business. Farrah, representing the sixth generation of growers, immediately began traveling to sell the family wines under Lynne Barnard, former President of Klinker Brick. In 2015, Farrah took on the role; VP of Sales and Marketing.
