Giornata Cellars Wine Dinner Event

Giornata Cellars Wine Dinner Event

 

On February 11th, we were joined by Brian Terrizzi, winemaker of Giornata Cellars for a spectacular wine dinner event. Giornata started with the dream of creating wines from Italian grapes grown in California with the influence and technique of Italian winemaking. Through this style their wines favor balance and subtlety rather than the intensity and extraction characteristic of Californian wines.

Brian's enthusiasm for winemaking is shown not only in his involvement in Giornata, but also in the creation of Broadside, a central coast Californian producer.
