  • Lasseter Family Winery at DCA 5/1/09

    I attended the Lasseter Family Winery wine-tasting event on May 1st at 5PM at the Food and Wine Festival at Disney's California AdventureCarsland understandably. Growing up in nearby Whittier (which he mentioned 3 times) and having worked at DL this progress is obviously supremely important to him personally. It was inspiring to see and hear just how passionate he is about the future coming soon to DCA, the excitement and pride he has for it was absolutely palpable.

    Hearing him speak about winemaking -the time, patience and processes -confusing it with filmmaking a few times too, was also enthralling. Doing it as a family is also paramount to both he and his wife, particularly as she noted, "because John works so hard and is away from home quite alot". She is just a doll, the support she radiates is simply too terrific.

    On the film front, he walked into the event wearing an UP baseball cap and told me afterwards that he is so very proud of Pete Docter and his film. I asked him if he'd be doing some wine tasting while in France for the film's premiere opening at the Cannes Film Festival. Boy, did he smile! He graciously signed Cars and Toy Story artwork for me before heading off to autograph some wine bottles for other attendees.

    One last note, it was quite funny to have his farewell words at the event interruppted by one Mike Wozowski and the Pixar Play Parade heading towards us at the Golden Vine Winery patio. "Drowned out by my own characters!"

        Their 2005 St. Emilion style red blend, Sonoma County (Merlot, Cab, Malbec, Cab Franc) and the Rhone style red blend, Sonoma Valley (Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre) were also wonderful, particularly the latter of the two. They were all part of an overall quality experience, enjoy.
