I’m delighted to announce this week’s offering; an allocation from The Withers Winery. The Withers, founded by Andrew Tow, focuses on high elevation, cool climate wines, sourcing from the Sonoma Coast for California classics, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and the Sierra Foothills for their Rhône varietals.
These highly allocated wines are produced by the accomplished and acclaimed winemaker David Low, who previously served in various capacities at William Selyem Winery and was also co-founder as winemaker at the award winning Anthill Farms Winery. In just these short 3 years, The Withers Winery has garnered high praise from the world’s leading wine critics. But when talking to Tow, it’s clear that the success of his winery all came as a bit of a surprise.
“I was simply creating wines to share with friends. And, at the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about. People. The connections we make — whether while learning, making, or drinking.”
Andrew has agreed to offer us a small allocation of his wines, the only allocation outside of the USA. I even managed to convince him to include his seductive and juicy El Dorado Grenache (only 144 cases produced) along with a few cases of his English Hill Pinot as well. Andrew’s pinots are Burgundian in character, but rich in new world terroir. They are drinking beautifully now, but will evolve in beguiling ways with some time in the cellar. This will definitely compete for my Pinot offering of the year! This is a highly allocated selection, so please act fast.
As always, these wines have pristine provenance, direct from the winery’s cellar, and will be shipped in October. Cheers – FXL
