Chris Pierce and co-owner of Ledbetter Wines, Geoff Whitman, produce one wine: Syrah. Not only is Chris a wine professional, he is a world-class, independent musician, whose resume includes gigs with B.B. King, Seal, Aaron Neville, Toots and the Maytals and Al Green to name a few. Also an inspirational speaker, Chris just came back from giving a series of TED talks on the healing power of music.
Chris' Ledbetter Syrah is as zesty, earthy and complex as its maker. Grapes are sourced from Sonoma County's Mounts Vineyard in Dry Creek Valley. The wine is well-crafted, showing off partner Whitman's expertise, who is General Manager for M by Michael Mondavi and Isabel Mondavi wines.
Join us at Sassafras Saloon in Hollywood for dinner and wine with Chris, then stick around for his performance (no cover charge!) and enjoy some gritty, harmonica-driven, foot-stompin' blues.
There is a $10.00 fee, payable in advance to savor a glass of Ledbetter Syrah. Order on your own from Sassafras' menu; they make a mean Jambalaya that complements Chris' Syrah to a tee.
