It’s custom to give a bottle and receive a bottle when Winemakers great each other. Sometimes were lucky enough to share a case of the wares which happened to Robert during a recent visit at Wyncroft.
Jim Lester is the winemaker at the prestigious Wyncroft located in the Lake Michigan Shore wine appellation just south of Fennville. Jim is one of the top winemakers/viticulturists in Michigan and his wines show it year-after-year. His Bordeaux and Burgundy style reds and whites are some of the best in the New World and would be right up there with the best from the Old World. He's a master of the history of wine and his palate is one of the best I’ve tasted with. Jim was recently gifted Brengman Brothers 2018 Viognier and him and his wife Dawn paired it up with a spectacular dish of garden veggie pilaf with sauteed garden fresh green beans. Absolutely perfect was the review by Jim about the meal and the match of the viognier.
