Best Wine on Grape Collective
What are you waiting for?

Sarah Vandendriessche

In previous weeks, Grape Collective has featured some of the valley’s pioneers through interviews and video. This week, we turn to the young guns: those individuals who are shaping the future of this storied region.

Sarah Vandendriessche’s “round about way,” to becoming a winemaker in Napa Valley makes her an inspiration for anyone wanting to break into the industry. A native of New Orleans, she fell in love with wine while working in a restaurant. She describes the wine she crafts for Elizabeth Spencer, a boutique, high-end winery in Rutherford, in the terms of her other great love: music. Her wines are “classical:” focused and structured. “We’re looking for orchestration — for a lot of instruments that come together to create harmony tension and layers of texture,” says Vendendriessche.
