BBQ and Summer Wine with Mount Eden and JustJess
Summer and BBQ are the perfect match. Along with a great glass of wine ! Mount Eden Vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains of CA was the first place that came to my mind when thinking of summer and wine, especially after hearing about their Wine Spectator rated wines.
I met with Jeffrey Patterson, the winemaker and owner of Mount Eden, to learn about his vineyard and how he claims to be the birthplace of California Burgundian wine-making.
Patterson took me on a tour of his breathtaking winery, with his Wine Spectator Rated Wines, and even shared a perfect home cooked meal to perfectly compliment a tasting of all his wines. One of the wines included his 2004 Estate Chardonnay , rated 94 points by WS. It’s crisp mineral and citrus notes were the highlight of the day!
