Winemaker Tasting with Jill Klein Matthiasson
March 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Once again we bringing you an AMAZING winemaker to showcase their portfolio at the hottest tasting bar in the triangle. This Friday we have Jill Klein Matthiasson of Matthiason Winery joining us. Matthiasson Winery is a six time James Beard Award finalist, with countless articles, accolades, and notoriety for their outstanding work in the Napa and Sonoma regions of California.
“Winemaking, for us, is a natural extension of farming. We explore classical expressions of different grape varieties, some well-known like Chardonnay or Cabernet Sauvignon, and some rare like Ribolla Gialla or Refosco. In all cases we try to respect the purity of the variety and the individuality of the site. Our wines are refreshing, complement food, and are moderate in alcohol.”
A little about Jill…
Jill always felt that the intersection of nature and culture was the most important thing. She studied botany at Penn, researched ancient farming techniques in Israel, and studied traditional methods for soil health in grad school at UC Davis. She pioneered “farmer to farmer” networking for sustainability in the early 90s while working for a family farming non-profit, and ran programs training farmers on direct sales, such as CSAs and farmers markets, before local food had the momentum that it has now. As the family grew, that passion translated into more local action, like teaching cooking from the garden classes in the local grade school, and serving on the Napa Farmer’s Market board. She runs the business side of the family farming and wine business.
All tasting wines will be available at special event pricing for one night only.
