A Broker’s Wine Adventures: Do Good Vines’ Petite Sirah

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with John A. Souerbry & Associates 01370983

Do Good Productions, Inc. markets two wines:  Petite Sirah and Viognier.  This weekend I was invited to a backyard tasting in Lafayette that featured these two wines and presented the Do Good business model.  I don’t usually write about wines made outside my backyard near Napa, but these deserve a few good words.

Do Good’s wines are made from fruit grown in organic and sustainable vineyards in the Sierra Foothills, and half their profits are donated to charitable causes.  They’re a small producer, making less than 400 cases of the wines presented at this tasting.

We took two bottles of the 2009 Petite Sirah home.  Give it time to open up, and this wine turns very smooth and full.  If you can find it, try it.  Also available online.

Do Good's wine sounds really umm...good :).  That is kind of cool that you got invited to a tasting.

Hi Brenda - I'm lucky to split time between living in Palo Alto, where real estate prices remain very high, and up north, about 10 minutes from downtown Napa, where a real estate guy can't make as much money - but the wine flows constantly.  There are dozens of small producers who share wine making facilities with other labels and run their "wineries" from their kitchen table.  Many aren't large enough to develop efficient distribution channels, so backyard tastings is one of the ways they get people to buy their wines.  Once you get your name into the community, emails arrive daily with invitations to tastings of one kind of another.  Now that harvest is underway, I'll be writing more about my Broker Wine Adventures, so stay tuned!
