Gordon Russell – Senior Winemaker Bio:

Gordon Russell has established himself as one of New Zealand's most recognized winemaking identities with his passionate approach to winemaking, and the enormous success he has achieved with his wines in tastings and competitions.

Born in New Plymouth, New Zealand, Gordon’s desire to travel took him to England and Europe for three years after university. He had always been interested in different flavors and trying new food so during his time abroad he naturally also developed an appreciation for fine wine.

In 1986 Gordon returned to New Zealand, just when the wine styles for which New Zealand has become highly regarded were beginning to emerge. Gordon was appointed as Esk Valley winemaker in 1993, after working for Villa Maria in Auckland as a cellar hand from 1987 and then as assistant winemaker to Grant Edmonds at Esk Valley from 1990.

Gordon strives to make wines that tell the story of the vineyards from which they came. Experience has taught him that with attention to detail in vineyard, the winemaking process becomes simple and a hands off affair. Esk Valley’s aim is to produce a natural style of wine utilising wild yeast and long term lees ageing. These are modern styles of wine made in a hand crafted manner.

The Wonders of Wonderment Wine with Winemaker & Owner: Stephanie Cook

The Wonders of Wonderment Wine with Winemaker & Owner: Stephanie Cook

AboutUsImg.jpg

$25

Charleston local Stephanie Cook is in the house! Stephanie is the owner, winemaker and one woman show of Wonderment Wine! She will be pouring 6 of her scoring wines here at Bin 526.

Cheese and Charcuterie will be provided.

Presenter Bio – Born and raised in Leesville, South Carolina, Stephanie began traveling the world as a fashion model, living and working in London, Milan and Istanbul. Landing back in South Carolina, this time in Charleston, she turned her lifelong love of food into a new career, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a culinary degree from Johnson & Wales University. After staging in a restaurant in Milan, she returned to the incredible food, history and beauty of Charleston. Stephanie put her hospitality and entrepreneurial skills to the test, creating and leading the successful special events and catering company, Bridgeside Events, which she later sold.

All the while, her secret dream to become a winemaker waited patiently for its moment. After losing her Dad unexpectedly, the man who made homemade Muscadine wine in the laundry room, it motivated her to make her dream of becoming a winemaker become a reality. Not long after, she met Bob Biale of Robert Biale Vineyards at a industry event in New York City and informed Bob that she was coming to work for him. True to her word, she worked that year's harvest in Napa, soaking up every bit of knowledge she could.

In 2011, she bought her own grapes and made her first Pinot Noir and two Zinfandels. In 2012, she continued honing her skills at Spottswoode, a family wine estate in St. Helena. And, fell ever more in love with winemaking. In 2013, she was the senior intern at Anomaly Vineyards working with acclaimed winemaker Mark Porembski. In spring of 2014 Stephanie decided to go down under to New Zealand, specifically to Marlborough and spend 8 weeks in the role of Vintage Winemaker for Spy Valley Wines. During the 2014 Napa/Sonoma harvest Stephanie worked harvest at Staglin Family Vineyard with winemaker Frederik Johansson. The rest, as they say, is history - or, as we like to say, a balancing act.

Must be 21+ to attend. This class size is limited to 30 attendees.
