Groups soak in Pacific Breeze Winery's story, as they survey the walls of casks. Later, wine classes break down the artful process of transforming grapes into varietals, discussing the role of oak barrels and grape selection. Finally, guests get a chance to pair artisan cheeses, meats, and crackers with the wines. Groups who purchase the four- and eight-person options will be on private tours; those who purchase the two-person option will be put in other groups of up to eight people total.
Pacific Breeze Winery
More than two decades ago, Frank Gregus and Maurice Hamilton set out on a venture as amateur home winemakers. Their cottage industry flourished into Pacific Breeze Winery in 2005, and since their first professional release in March 2007, their family-owned _garagiste_—or "garage winery"—has hauled in more than 50 international medals, including Intervin's "Best Winery of the Year" award in 2010. From grape to barrel, barrel to bottle, and bottle to kiddie pool, Pacific Breeze Winery's lavishes meticulous attention to each small-lot, handcrafted product. This diligence infuses every sip of robust reds and elegant whites, each of which begins its journey at premium vineyards across North America.
