EPISODE SHOW NOTES: It’s our second trip out to Christopher Creek Winery, and while this episode of Major Crush is still all about wine, it’s also about so much more than that. It’s about family…and heritage and discovering the stories and the legacy of one family inside of a bottle. We had so much fun spending a sunny afternoon with Joe Foppoli and his brother, Dominic. Dominic takes the lead in this interview and spills a few family secrets (which could also be classified as “Family Blackmail”) and takes us on a virtual journey to visit the Italian side of this beautiful winemaking family! This interview was recorded in February of 2020, and at the time, life was very different. But everything changed in March, and so the plans Meredith & Lou were making with the Foppoli Brothers at the end of this episode were put on hold. But don’t worry! With the help and guidance of Domnic & Joe Foppoli, we hope to bring you “Major Crush Italy” sometime very soon!
But for now, the horizontal of Pinot Noir wines featured in this episode: 2017 Bacigalupi Vineyard; 2017 Eastside; 2017 Kasim Family Vineyard; and 2017 Foppoli Family Vineyard. Other wines Meredith & Lou enjoyed: 2014 Foppoli Russian River Chardonnay; 2016 Christopher Creek Nebiolo;  and 2016 Christopher Creek Deux Barriques (50% Zin/50% Petite Syrah).
