Michael David Winery Virtual Tasting
November 18, 2020 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
The Phillips family and Lodi, California go way back. They have been farming this soil since the 1860’s and cultivating wine grapes since the early 20th century. Founders and brothers, Michael and David Phillips, are 5th generation grape growers who have raised their families in the vineyard; and now the 6th generation has joined the team, Mike’s son, Kevin, and daughter, Melissa. They embrace the importance of “leaving it better than you found it” for future generations. The Phillip’s family legacy and love of Lodi drive their focus on sustainability. Plus, they are pretty fun too. Co-Owner/Founder and President, David Phillips, will be guiding our VIRTUAL tasting of seven Michael David wines.
DAVID PHILLIPS: Early adopter of farmer’s markets, underage winemaker, long distance runner, UC Davis alum, champion of Lodi Wines, cork dork, brother, husband, father, and outdoor enthusiast. Working the family farm and vineyards from a young age, Dave returned to Lodi in 1989 after graduation, obtaining a job in the wine cork industry, and backpacking the world. Since then, he’s combined his love of Michael David Winery wines with his love of traveling by overseeing distribution from just one state to all 50, then onto 32 countries!
In your purchase, you will receive seven, 1oz. samples of the featured wines to taste during the Virtual Tasting. All seven featured wines will be available to purchase (at a discounted price) online after the event.
HOW IT WILL WORK: You will pickup your seven wine tasting samples from WineStyles in West Glen between Noon and 5pm on Wednesday, November 18th. Take them home, and get your wine glasses ready!
