Theodora Lee is a lawyer & owner of Theopolis Vineyards located in Yorkville Highlands in Mendocino county. Mendocino county is located right next to Sonoma, and is famous for its stunning coastline, food and wine. While Napa and Sonoma are famous for their vineyards, neighoring county’s Anderson Valley in Mendocino has its own share of vineyards.
Theodora first discovered the wine growing region of Northern California as a young lawyer. About 10 years ago she bought a few acres of land in Yorkville Highlands and started her vineyard. She mostly grows Petite Sirah grapes.
We caught up with Theo as she prefers to be called at BiteSV conference in Santa Clara, and got to talk to her about the wines from her vineyard. In this video Theo is talking about their wine made from Symphony grape, which is a cross between Muscat of Alexandria and Grenache Gris. The wine has a dry, crisp finish as she puts it.
We have a longer interview with her coming up.
