NEYERS ON NAPA Winemaker Dinner
with Bruce Neyers, Owner, Neyers Vineyards
Ret. National Sales Manager, Kermit Lynch Imports
TUESDAY, July 24, 7:00 pm
|at The Fillmore, 7954 Ann Arbor Street, Dexter|
Just retired from the position of national sales manager for Kermit Lynch Imports, Bruce Neyers is now devoting full attention to the project he and his wife started in 1992, Napa Valley's Neyers Vineyards. Wine Spectator senior editor James Laube wrote an article about Bruce five years ago. Change the dates, and it could have been written yesterday.
'There are so many things that Neyers winery is doing right these days that it's hard to know where to begin.
'Bruce and Barbara Neyers have been married for 46 years, sweethearts since they were teens; they have three children and reside at their winery in Conn Valley, a slender offshoot midway through Napa Valley.
'What impresses me about their winery goes beyond the quality of the wines, which is often exceptional, and extends to the sensibility of pricing. That comes from being on the sales side of the equation, working with dozens of imports and being a consumer at heart. It's a function of Bruce Neyers having been in the wine business for 43 years, including 21 at the helm of his winery. Along the way he's had stops at Mayacamas, Heitz and Stony Hill, and oversaw sales and marketing for Joseph Phelps Vineyards.
''Running the importer Kermit Lynch & Co. for two decades has given him a unique perspective. He spends about half the year visiting the wineries in Lynch's book, including two annual trips to Burgundy and two to the Rhone.'
I'm proud to have called Bruce a friend for decades. It's my utmost pleasure to invite him here to preside over one of our winemaker dinners. He's in the unique position to bring a world prospective to Napa Valley winegrowing.
'Now two weeks out, the MENU joins the proposed wine lineup. Chef Adam Boonstra and staff have sampled the dinner wines and made menu pairings.
