A taste of Spain tonight in our interview with Miramar Torres of Miramar Estate. Coming to California in 1975, Miramar brought her European style to the vineyards in the rolling hills of western Sonoma County, the Russian River/Green Valley appellation. Only 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean and 50 miles north of San Francisco, Miramar Estate has a perfect microclimate influenced by the sea's cooling breezes and drifting fog, for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Marimar selected this privileged location to "export" the Torres family legacy of fine wines from Catalonia, Spain to California.

ABOUT DANIEL MORRIS
Daniel Morris has always had a love and appreciation for the finer things in life, having spent a great deal of his childhood on the grounds of Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill Kentucky. Observing the architecture and hand crafted furniture by the Shakers, created his admiration for the simplistic architecture and craftsmanship of the Shakers. This taught him the beauty of wood and its possibilities, leading him to making artistic creations from wood as a pastime. Spending much of his time outdoors, Daniel grew to have an appreciation for the land and the fruits that it bears. He owned a farm and, as a certified organic grower, ran a CSA. This love of the land and outdoors, lead him to an athletic career in the cycling and running industries, as well as inspired him to compete as a triathlete. His ongoing love for historic preservation came to life again where he is presently involved in the environmental recovery field. Daniel developed a love for fine wines in the 1980’s, and has never lost a flair for selecting and enjoying a fine wine. As a founder of Wine Clubs Online, he enjoys the opportunity to broaden his wine knowledge and enjoy experiencing the adventures that the wine industry has to offer.
