Off the Vine: Show # 27 October 6, 2015
On this episode of Off the Vine SCW Director of Marketing Sean Carroll steps in to help Steve Jaxon host Alexander Valley grower Bret Munselle of Munselle Family Vineyards. The Munselle Family has been growing grapes in Alexander Valley since the 1870’s. Bret tells the story of his two great-grandfathers purchasing their vineyard next to Stryker Sonoma back in the 1880’s. The Munselle Family also farmed prunes and hops when they settled in the region. Today, Bret and his family not only grow the grapes, but also make four wines under their own label. Bret describes Alexander Valley’s unique characteristics for growing Cabernet Sauvignon, which he works closely with.
