Winemaker Dinner: Marimar Torres from Marimar Estate
November 6, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Torres family legacy stretches back centuries, inexorably bound up with the history of enology in Spain and the expansion of viticulture to both North and South America. The is particularly exemplified through the work of fourth generation family member Marimar Torres, director of Marimar Estate. Born in Barcelona during Franco’s dictatorship, Marimar worked tirelessly to pursue both higher education and a place in the wine industry at a time when such things were incredibly difficult for women to attain. She founded her eponymous winery in 1986 after emigrating to the United States, and it was here that she found renewed success as a vintner. The rolling green hills of the Russian River Valley, cooled by the sea breezes and fog of the Pacific Ocean, provided her with the perfect conditions for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the model of her family’s rigorous standards for quality fine wine. On November 6th we celebrate the wines of Marimar Estate with a very special dinner designed to highlight the elegance and balance of these unique wines, which represent an ideal marriage between Catalonian and Californian viticulture.
