February Wine Tasting at the Princeville Wine Market
Thomas Fogarty Winery: Friday, 2/8/19 from 4-6pm
Dr. Thomas Fogarty moved to the Santa Cruz Mountains in 1969 to practice medicine at Stanford Hospital and develop medical devices. He soon fell in love with the rugged terrain and natural beauty of the region and began to purchase land surrounding his new home. By 1977 Fogarty had accumulated over 300 acres, and economic reality dictated that if he wanted to keep the land he would need to enter into an open space agreement and start an agricultural business.
Thankfully, some of his friends convinced him to plant grapes by introducing hime to the fantastic Santa Cruz wines made by Ridge, David Bruce, and Mount Eden. Thomas Fogarty Winery is now considered one of the top producers in the area. Today, Tom Fogarty Jr. leads the helm. Prior to taking over operations at the winery Tom worked in the automotive sector doing brand development for manufacturers including Ferrari, Bentley, Maserati and Lamborghini. This is a great opportunity to try these wines and learn about this region. We will be tasting a Gewurtztraminer, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and a Meritage red blend. For any questions, please contact us at (808) 826-0040.
