Ray and Nancy Coursen started Elyse Winery in 1987 with 286 cases of Zinfandel. After a decade of nomadic winemaking at various custom crush facilities, in 1997 they purchased a small winery and vineyard on Hoffman Lane, the home of Elyse Winery and tasting room. From that point on, the Elyse portfolio expanded and Elyse Winery began to produce Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Rhone Style Reds. Today Elyse Winery is known as a hidden gem among giants. Over the years many Elyse wines have received 90+ scores from Robert Parker, the Wine Enthusiast, and others. Michelle Duckett, National Sales & Marketing Manager for Elyse Winery, will lead this tasting of spectacular wines. Seminar at Sunset & Vine (formerly Christopher’s Wine and Cheese).
