Two weekends ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Napa and stopping in to meet the extended family of AMWA’s long-time member, Dr. Satty Keswani. Dr. Keswani’s neice, Dr. Allison Crisp, is a pediatrician in Napa, California. Her nephew-in-law, Andre Crisp, is president and CEO of Luna Vineyards, an estate vineyard located along the Silverado Trail. Luna is known for its exceptional portfolio of handcrafted, award-winning wines which are produced using biodynamic farming, natural fermentation methods, and handpicked grapes. Luna was also the first family-owned winery in the area to plant the “visionary Italian varietal of Pinot Grigio.”
We spent a lovely afternoon at the vineyard, including rooftop views from the tower and samplings of wine, from the light summery Estate Pinot Grigio to the Bubbles Blanc de Noirs.
If you are in the area, it is worth a stop by. For more information, visit www.LunaVineyards.com.
