Cantina Terlano Luncheon with Whit Meyers

 

 

I’ve loved this cooperative for years! Founded in 1893, this crew now has 100 associates trained in natural viticulture. Consistently, the whites hold their own with time in bottle. They have structure, balance, body, and delight. Throw in Whit Meyers as guide and you’ve got the goods.

In order preference.
