Over lunch at The Lambs Membership, we sat down with tastemakers, wine fanatics and Brazilian Winemaker Elizabeth Vianna- Hill of Chimney Rock Vineyard. Chimney Rock Vineyard got here to be in 1980- after Hack and Stella Wilson bought the 180-acre parcel of land, that included a golf course, and the Terlato household took sole possession in 2004. The Stags Leap District property is now identified for prime quality cabernet sauvignon in a serene panorama. Celebrating 40 years this 12 months, with Elizabeth as winemaker for the previous 20 years, we chatted about all issues wine, music and extra.
What’s your favourite a part of being a winemaker?
I’d say two issues. One, simply strolling the vineyards and being there in that quiet place. It’s my comfortable place. The second factor is this- seeing the wines come alive a desk for folks. In the end, that is what I make wine for. I’ve all the time mentioned my purpose was to make wines that transfer folks. I wish to make wines that make folks go ” Oh my God”. I need it to be an emotional response.
Do you will have a favourite wine out of your lineup?
I don’t -they are all my youngsters!
Is there a wine you wish to make that you just haven’t made but?
I would like to make glowing. I love bubbles.
In the event you weren’t a winemaker, what would you be doing?
I is perhaps a fiction writer-I really like phrases. I love piano, I really like music. I perhaps enjoying the blues in a lounge someplace!
What’s in your playlist proper now?
Music is like wine for me- I find it irresistible all. Soul, jazz, classical, world music. I’m Brazilian by start so I love Brazilian music. Once I’m alone on the vineyard and everyone seems to be gone, I often play classical. Proper now, the newest Beyonce album is one in all my favourite albums ever. I find it irresistible all- I simply love music. I couldn’t stay with out it.
