Presented by Winemaker Daniel Brennan, Philadelphia native now winemaker at Decibel Wines 


Hey there Philly folks!  I'm extremely stoked to be presenting not only these wines but a few very exciting regions and history.  I've provided some links, videos and information below if you'd like to do a bit of homework going into this master class and tasting.  But there's nothing like the real thing and tasting these wines and hearing these stories first hand will really help you appreciate why I upended my life over 9 years ago and moved to the other side of the planet.  Looking forward to it.  cheers!

Here's a short video of when I took a hike up Roy's Hill, conveniently located across Highway 50 from my home.  Atop Roy's Hill you can see all the Bridge Pa Wine Growing District, the start of the Gimblett Gravels, and the Crownthorpe Terraces off in the distance.

Here's a great video from Villa Maria explaining the Gimblett Gravels then a short video showing some awesome shots of the famous Gimblett Gravels soils.  This was a piece for the program Thirsty Work with host Yvonne Lorkin.
