Profile of Julie and John Balistreri

Kevin Hamm over at wrote up the Balistreri family from Balistreri Vineyards. Under the headline, "Balistreri Vineyards a Family Affair," Hamm says:

"Julie Balistreri swirls the garnet-colored Syrah around in the glass and then holds it up to her nose for a sniff.

"'Wow,' she says, her eyes widening. 'Do you smell that black pepper?'

"Julie and her father, John, are in the storage room of Balistreri Vineyards engaged in a barrel tasting -- that's when they sample some wine from the oak barrels the wine is aging in to see which ones are ready for bottling. Over the next few weeks, they'll sample nearly 200 barrels of wine. When it's all said and done, they will end up with about 50,000 bottles of wine.
