You can’t blame Rudy and Sean Gnekow if they act like a celebration is in the air. After beginning Gnekow Family Winery nearly 20 years ago with their winemaker cousin Barry Gnekow, the former sales exec and erstwhile property manager have hit a winning streak with their small family winery.
Tasting Notes: Imagine this: when these vines were planted, it was the Great Depression, Donald Duck was a new cartoon character and gas cost ten cents a gallon. Wine does indeed tell a story. Contemplate it as you savor the rich fruit aromas and dark fruit flavors of this amazing 95-point rated Zin.
Tasting Notes: Summer’s on the way, but catch a little preview with this bright Pinot Grigio. Citrus and pear on the nose and lemon-lime on the palate, this white is perfect for a lazy afternoon or with a fish fry among friends.
“The past decade has seen real consistency in our wine quality,” Rudy says. “Instead of changing our style or sources of fruit, we’ve zeroed in on step-by-step quality production.” The winery’s sharp focus on Zin, Pinot Grigio, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon has enhanced its ability to fine-tune the most crowd-pleasing aromas, flavors and textures for Gnekow wines.
