With the philosophy deeply ingrained in his psyche that wine is a liquid
food, Gary Miller, an accomplished chef, parlayed his career in the
food industry to follow his passion…winemaking. Gary has worked for
such notable wine producers as La Jota, Martinelli, and Robert Biale.
His own brand, Miller Wine Works, is an expression of all the paths
Gary’s life has taken, from being raised in a rural, Western New York
family to becoming a Napa Valley vintner. As a chef, Gary fully
understands the necessity of integration and balance when the fruits
of the land intermingle with the fruits of one’s labor. Who better than
a chef-winemaker to bring forth skillfully integrated, well-balanced
wine?

Winemaker Notes:The The 2007 Miller Wine Works, The Works, Kimberly’s Selection, Napa Valley is our third iteration of the Rhone blend so many have requested over the years. On the nose, sweet ripe plum, deep red cherry, and rose petals are prominent. Once on the palate, wild strawberries and red raspberries mingle harmoniously, framed by bright acidity, and finishing with notes of leather and spice. This wine will continue to develop complexity and weight with further bottle age.
