Jamey Whetstoone, Consulting Winemaker. Jamey moved out to Napa Valley from his home in South Carolina to manage Mustards Grill in 1996. Simply captivated by the community, lifestyle, and culture of wine country, he found himself quickly growing roots. By 1998, he had begun his winemaking education at Turley Wine Cellars where he would remain in his apprenticeship until 2005. During that time, he spent a summer sabbatical working for the Seysses family at Domaine Dujac in Morey-Saint-Denis and laid the groundwork for Whetstone Wine Cellars, which he founded in 2002. This wine is golden straw in color. Big noseful of ripe pear, lychee, hazelnut, citrus zest, and toasty oak. Background hints of petrol and honey. Expressive, full-bodied palate of pear, tropical fruits, and citrus. Finishes long with lingering notes of pear, green apple and bright acidity.
