Overview

In this virtual tasting, we will visit with winery founder Dave Miner and taste 2 whites and 2 reds. These are wines that are handcrafted and absolutely delicious. Miner Family Winery is a dynamic, family-owned winery tucked along the eastern hills of the Oakville appellation in the heart of Napa Valley. Founded in 1998 by Dave and Emily Miner along with his parents, Ed and Norma, Miner makes reserve style wines using fruit from Napa Valley and other specially selected California vineyards.

Wines Good Enough For The White House

  • Miner’s focus is on producing high end, reserve-style wines that reflect the unique characteristics of individual vineyards or terrior where those specific varietals grow best.
  • In May 2007 Miner Family Winery’s 2004 Wild Yeast Chardonnay was featured at a White House dinner.
  • Since then, Miner wines have been honored to be on the menu at five additional official dinners.

Attention To Every Detail

  • Each wine at Miner is crafted in a style to encapsulate the distinctive elements and the indelible fingerprints of their respective vineyards.
  • They have sought and secured a number of California’s finest vineyard sites, but only those allowing complete farming control. It is this level of detail and control, from vine to wine, that ensures a wine’s consistency and quality.

Meet Dave Miner

  • Following a number of years spent working in the software industry, Dave Miner got his start in wine in 1993 as President of Oakville Ranch Vineyards, owned by his late uncle, Robert Miner.
