Winery Visit: Imagery Estate – 9.2 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

Always enjoy my visits to Imagery Estate.  A beautiful Sonoma Valley location and sister winery to Benziger winery.   This winery situated in Glen Ellen is also proximate to Arrowood.  Imagery Estate for their art work focus both in the art work on site but also the art work featured on their wine labels.  You will see an impressive display of all or nearly of all the bottles they have produced.  They have a variety of varietals – everything from Viognier, Barbera, Syrah, Tempranillo, Malbec, to Cabernet Sauvignon.  Their 2001 Barbera was dynamite and it was a gift that I had received several years ago.  Opening the bottle up I did expect a nice wine but was completely surprised on the exceptional quality and focus.  And a very welcoming staff promise a good visit to all that enter.

About James Melendez

I love wine and have had the privilege of working in the wine trade as a senior national wine marketing manager for a wine, food and home goods retailer in 30+ US States. I executed into making wine experiential and made 'wines of the world' programme work in a highly regulated framework for a successful business proposition. My "wine" site also incorporates those categories intimately involved with wine such as food, travel and lifestyle. This site incorporates my many dimensions of interest. I love to review and also talk about many aspects of wine. I have been privileged to visit many wine countries and find them enthralling no matter how many times I visit. I love all aspects of wine: viticulture, history, winemaking, brand development, wine regions and many more aspects. This is a living tradition that needs documentation, education, reporting and reviewing. Do I have favourite varieties and styles? I love so many varieties and often it is situational and yet there are time honoured wines that I anticipate and I am passionate about. I like all colours of wine and all styles. I have had a mad passionate affair with sparkling wines and they are always top of mind. Wine nourishes our soul and is the key to connecting with other people at our dinner table.
