This month we are featuring our Club Members Steve and Wendy who are from Santa Rosa, California.  Both joined the Amista Family in December 2013. Since then, we have been sharing wine and creating lasting memories with us! They are members of our Circle of Friends and Sparkling Add-On.  Below is their story!

Favorite Wine / Becoming Members:

As Bay Area natives, we are quite familiar with the amazing wines produced in Northern California. For years we focused our visits in the Napa Valley and began finding it too rushed with too many people. We decided to venture into Sonoma County one weekend for a change a pace. It was during that weekend we discovered Amista.

We were driving on Dry Creek Road and saw the yellow banner flying. While that wind blowing flag can't be missed due to its size and color, our eyes focused on the handwritten board which read "now pouring sparkling" (or at least that is how we remember it).  With race car precision, Steve very quickly turned into Amista before missing the driveway completely.

Of course, we were not disappointed. The tasting room was welcoming and we immediately felt at home with the warmth exuded by the staff. Once we tasted the Sparkling Syrah, we joined the wine club right away.  We are always impressed with the creativity of Ashley and admire her experimentation. Many thanks to Vicky and Mike for granting her such freedom and trust... we feel that we are the beneficiaries of that!

Favorite Memory: 

Our memories at Amista are filled with smiles, humor, friendship and great wine. We are blessed to have recently relocated to Sonoma County and try to make it to all of the hosted events. We especially enjoy the Dinner in the Vineyard. It is such a relaxing venue offering the opportunity to visit with other members and our Amista family, all while enjoying great food and wine.

This past year, we laughed and got dirty as part of the 'Sexy Syrah Stompers' team at Amista's 2018 Harvest Celebration. While we came in last place, we may have had the most fun!

Though it was the Sparkling Syrah that got us in the door, we find our favorites change as new releases are made available and how we feel at the moment. Steve's current "go to" is the Tres and Wendy is on a Sparkling Grenache kick. We are looking forward to tasting the Rose de "Tres", too, we have a feeling this may quickly become a new favorite!

Steve and Wendy enjoy our Tres with a delicious Thick Cut Pork Chop with an Herb and Garlic Sauce.  They drink our Sparkling Grenache with an evening sunset... no food needed!
