On December 8th, Alpha Omega winemaker Matt Brain, joined the Tasting Panel on Zoom to cover 10 of his new release wines. We learned a lot about Matt’s technical background and how he came to be Alpha Omega’s currant winemaker.

We also had a little fun talking about his former Baker & Brain project where I once scored a 2016 Gruner Veltliner he co-produced 92 points. It was fun bringing up that wine and to get the history on his relationship with Josh Baker.

Below is a summary of all the impressive wines that we covered with Matt. The links are to our full reviews. If you are interested in ordering these wines, you should most likely reach out to the winery directly. I am sure the concierge service team will be very happy to assist you.
