A Night with Wine
Come get to know Mike Trujillo, the winemaker at Sequoia Grove! We'll be tasting the Sequoia Grove Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cambium, each paired with an appetizer created by our own Chef Taylor.
Guests will be invited to come down between the hours of 6-9 to sample the wine and food and chat with Mike Trujillo.
With more than 30 years of winemaking experience in Napa Valley, Michael Trujillo has continually enhanced the quality of the wines at Sequoia Grove, among other projects initiating important expansion of Estate vineyard holdings and creating Cambium, an iconic new wine in the Sequoia Grove portfolio.
Trujillo's introduction to winemaking occurred in 1982 when, on spring break from his engineering program at Colorado College, he took a road trip to California and dropped by Sequoia Grove to visit family friend Jim Allen, who then offered him a job. Trujillo learned his craft in the vineyards and winery from Jim Allen, as well as from consultants André Tchelistcheff and Tony Soter; "André taught me the importance of balance, and Tony taught me modern techniques and ways to avoid winemaking problems," he says.
