The wine-growing, winemaking business has blossomed into a mainstream industry in recent times. But even today, there are still family owned and operated wineries that pride themselves on keeping their family business in the family. While many wine brands are corporately created and focused on the current fad, there are some that are grounded by the wisdom of generations past and the common bond they have with those around them. Tonight we will honor the fruits of their family's labor by tasting and toasting 10 types of wine that they produce.

Blending different grapes together has been the winemaker's main tool for making better and more interesting wines for centuries. Furthermore, it gives the resulting blends balance, depth, complexity, and makes the wine more complete. That's why American wine enthusiasts are fascinated by the details of what each winemaker has created in his own, distinct culmination of grapes, both red and white. Tonight we will delve into ten custom-made concoctions, and have some fun figuring out exactly what we are tasting in these blends.
