A few weeks ago I received an official press release from Wine Connection Consulting and Vineyard 48 announcing that Bernard Cannac had replaced Matthew Berenz as winemaker at Vineyard 48. It was surprising at the time given the strides Berenz had been making there.

It has come to my attention over the 24 hours that the press release was erroneous and that Berenz is still the winemaker at Vineyard 48.

In the interest of fairness and truth, I’ve removed the original post from the site. I have contacted all of the parties involved and will only comment on the situation further once I have all of the details.

I guess press releases aren’t as reliable as I expected. Lesson learned.
