Luna Visits Miner Family Winery

The tasting room staff at Luna Vineyards was graciously welcomed by Jenn at Miner Family Winery on Friday morning. As Director of Retail Sales, Jenn, provided an amazing experience and a unique opportunity for two wineries to meet and exchange ideas.

Just north of Luna on the scenic Silverado Trail, Miner sits perched on a hill with Napa’s version of a front yard – rows of vines. Founded in 1998 by Dave and Emily Miner, this family-owned winery makes twenty-five boutique bottlings from some of California’s most acclaimed vineyard sites.

Of the wines we tried, my favorite was Emily’s Cabernet, named in remembrance of Mrs. Miner and a stellar example of a Bordeaux blend from Napa Valley.

After an amazing flight of wines – 2 whites and 5 reds, Jenn led us to the estate’s hillside cave where the room’s large Tuscan table was set for a private tasting. Bypassing the event area, we were led down the stairs to the wine cellar where barrels were stacked in rows upon rows. Grabbing a long pipette, Jenn poured a barrel sampling in each of our glasses – an amazing experience!

Thank you Miner Family Winery for hosting Luna ~ we look forward to having you next!
