Winemakers who made the winning wines of Tri-Valley Conservancy's (TVC) Livermore Uncorked for 2019 offered some highlights of their process.

Brent Amos, who took the coveted trophy for Best of Show for his 2018 Las Positas Verdelho, said, “I am excited that the Verdelho won this award. I took a risk in grafting over to it (since there is no record of it being planted here before), and am happy that that risk is paying off.” He’s worked with the varietal since 2006, while at Fenestra, where he met grower, Ron Silva, in Lodi. Silva suggested they give his latest Portuguese white varietal a spin. Amos thinks the 2006 Fenestra Verdelho won Best of California at the State Fair.
