Winemaker Quider returns to SOBEWFF…

Ferrari-Carano’s Executive Winemaker, Sarah Quider, has poured her wines at SOBEWFF before and loved the experience. So it was a natural to have her return to showcase their wines at Eden Roc Hotel in the Key Biscayne Room on Friday, Feb 22nd at 4 pm. Ferrari -Carano has long been at the forefront of sustainable winemaking techniques and Quider will pour from their 2012 library selections and 2015 cabernet sauvignons from Alexander Valley and Sonoma County, breaking down each vintage in flavor profile, terroir, climate influences and sustainable farming practices. It promises to be a fun and educational tasting and a perfect time to have Quider do the NSI quiz.
