2014 Inspiration Vineyards Harvest Report

Written by guest blogger Jon Philips, Owner/Winemaker at Inspiration Vineyards & Winery

Pinot Noir Wines | MacPhail Family Wines Sonoma

One of the great joys of the wine business is finding a home at a place where the Pinot Noir wines, the people, and the place at which you work come together in great harmony.  I have been with MacPhail Family Wines for nearly 3 years and one of the most enjoyable parts of my job is the storytelling about the people and places from which our wines come.  We specialize in “wines of place”, wines that truly reflect the place from which they are grown.
