Summit to Sea
Two Virtuoso Winemakers. Two Distinct Wine Regions.
One Virtual Location.
On August 13, Napa Valley’s Chris Carpenter and Santa Barbara’s Greg Brewer come together to compare winemaking principles, inspirations, and philosophies in Summit to Sea, a series of virtual tasting experiences showcasing the wines of Napa’s mountain AVAs and the ocean swept Sta. Rita Hills appellation.
Although their vineyards, varietal inclinations, and wine styles may differ, Chris and Greg share the belief that great wines are born from exceptional sites and meticulous farming. Their wines honestly and expressively capture these diverse wine regions and illustrate the extremes of California’s landscapes.

About The Winemakers
Chris Carpenter is the winemaker for many of Napa Valley’s most prestigious wineries, including Cardinale, Lokoya, La Jota Vineyard Co., and Mt. Brave. Over the past two decades, Chris has earned a reputation for taming mountain tannins and creating legendary Cabernet Sauvignon. He works closely with the vineyard teams to nurture and manifest each vineyard block’s unique character into elegant wines with great depth, mountain character, and historic pedigree.
Greg Brewer has spent his three-decade career dedicated to the Sta. Rita Hills appellation, which he helped to map, define, and establish. He created his eponymous label, Brewer-Clifton, in 1996 and has since founded diatom and Ex Post Facto. What motivates Greg is working closely with the vineyards and the teams that care for them to produce a wine that is deliberate, driven, and transmissive of the voice of place.
These winemakers will interact in one virtual location to share the wines of each region, in what is sure to be a frank, enthusiastic discussion.
