Koehler Winery – History and Tasting

Winemaker Colin Murphy and Vineyard Manager Felipe Hernandez collaborate regularly to ensure the quality of the fruit improves from year to year.

Drinking this wine and imagining oysters made me think of a Hemingway quote from A Moveable Feast: As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture...
