I went to visit Chef Missy Will in Northern California last month to catch up and for a little wine tasting. We went to Silver Oak Winery through a Women and Wine Sense event. As we escaped from the 96 degree heat outside into the tasting room where we were offered a refreshing glass of Sauvignon Blanc. We also had the pleasure of tasting a Pinot Noir, and Cabernets from Alexander Valley and Napa Valley.
There was a panel of three mother daughter teams working in the local wine industry; Amelia Moran Ceja & Dalia Ceja of Ceja Vineyards, Herta Peju & Lisa Peju of Peju Province Winery, and Delia Viader & Jane Viader of Viader Vineyards. The panel discussion ranged from how everyone got stared to how the business was going to be passed on to the next generation.
