The Wines of Honig Vinyard and Winery hosted by Michael Honig
Wed, June 12th 2013 7PM-8:30PM

Blanchards West Roxbury, Vintage Room
We are fortunate to have Michael Honig, the President of Honig Vineyards & Winery, leading a seminar about his family's critically acclaimed wines. In 1964, Michael’s grandfather Louis Honig purchased a 68-acre ranch in Rutherford, in the heart of the Napa Valley planted with Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, which he sold to neighboring wineries. In 1981, as a tribute to his legacy, his family produced a few hundred cases of Louis Honig Sauvignon Blanc. After the wine won a Gold Medal at the Orange County Fair, the family decided to increase production, and Honig Vineyard & Winery was born. In 1984, at the age of 22, Louis’ grandson, Michael Honig, took over management of the vineyard and winery. Honig is one of the few family owned and operated wineries remaining in California, so this is a great opportunity learn about some of California’s finest Cabernets and Sauvignon Blancs. Michael is also a leader in sustainable farming, he chaired the first California initiative to develop a "Code of Sustainable Winegrowing Practices," a voluntary program establishing statewide guidelines for sustainable farming and winemaking. He is also involved in an innovative pilot program that trains yellow lab puppies to detect vine mealy bugs in the vineyard.
