Meet the Winemaker: Ross Cobb from Cobb Wines from 5 to 7pm- In 2001, two generations of the Cobb family came together to explore a shared passion for pinot noir with the founding of Cobb Wines. Focused exclusively on crafting single-vineyard, Sonoma Coast pinot noirs, Cobb Wines combines the winegrowing expertise of David Cobb, one of the pioneers of pinot noir viticulture on the far Sonoma Coast, with the winemaking talents of his son, noted pinot noir specialist Ross Cobb. Cobb Wines are some of our favorite Pinots and Ross is one of our favorite winemakers and not just because of his wine. Come to this tasting and find out why!
