Wine Tasting: Huneeus Family Wines

Loading...


Tuesday, February 25th
7-9pm
Vintner Agustin Huneeus has been discovering great vineyards of the world spanning five decades and 15 countries. Agustin and his wife Valeria founded the Quintessa estate in the renowned Rutherford District of Napa Valley in 1990 and in 2005, after years of running global wine companies Agustin established a family portfolio of wines that represent the finest vineyard estates in California and Oregon.
In addition to the Quintessa estate, the family's vineyard and winery projects include Faust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Illuminationby Quintessa, an aromatic white wine. In 2009, the Huneeus family forged a partnership with Joan and Walt Flowers of Flowers Vineyards & Winery, pioneering vintners who in 1989, established two extraordinary vineyards dedicated to world-class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the extreme Sonoma Coast.
In 2017, Andy Erickson, former winemaker for Screaming Eagle, joined as partners on his red blend project Leviathan, which began in 2004. Most recently in 2018, the Huneeus family has partnered with long-time family friends Steve and Carol Girard of Benton-Lane from the Willamette Valley, Oregon.
