On Saturday we were treated to a wonderful lunch and tasting at Shinn Estates. On the table were a Shinn Estates Sauvignon Blanc and Macari Savignon Blanc. Both were very good. The Shinn was blended with a bit of Semillion which I thought was very good. I can be very critical of my Sauvignon Blancs. There was also a very nice Rose served at lunch. There were some reds on the table, but I seemed to stick with the whites.

While we were eating the discussions began. Joe Macari of Macari Vineyards spoke about his vitniculture practices in his family owned winery.
