Spotlight Series: TWO SHEPHERDS
March 9, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Spinster Sisters are thrilled to announce the lineup for our Spring 2018 Spotlight Series! We’re having some friends over to pour for you this spring. Come meet, chat, and sip with a few of our favorite local winemakers! No tickets, no prix-fixe, and everything is poured by the glass and half-glass, so you can stop by for a drink and a snack, or go all out with a sampling of our small plates and pairings.
Mark these Friday nights on your calendar and give us a call for reservations!
Two Shepherds started originally as a garagiste, then a one man micro winery, committed to making old world style wines that express vintage and place. William often jokes there aren’t two shepherds, but actually half shepherd, as in addition to making a multitude of small lots, doing all production, he has a full time “day job” that funds the winery and its growth.
In 2015 William was joined by his partner Karen Daenen, a wine industry veteran, and head of consumer research for a multi-brand winery, as they moved into their own production facility in Windsor.
Two Shepherds specializes in Rhone varieties (e.g. Grenache Blanc, Mourvèdre, Roussanne,) from cool climate vineyards and unique plantings, made with minimal intervention. Use of native yeast, no additions other than minimal S02, neutral barrel fermentation and aging, whole cluster, and unfined, unfiltered production are core philosophies of Two Shepherds.
Two Shepherds was named as a Top Ten Hot Brand by Wine Business Monthly in 2012, and profiled in Jon Bonné’s book, The New California Wine: A Guide to the Producers and Wines Behind a Revolution in Taste. In 2017 Two Shepherds was also featured in a 66 page book by the San Francisco Chronicle as top 50 wineries to visit in Napa & Sonoma, as well as cover photo for Sonoma Syrah article, and dubbed 2017 San Francisco Chronicle: Rhone Style Rockstars
