MINER BENEDETTO WINE

The guitar maker and the wine maker share an astonishing ability to produce
a singularly harmonious outcome by selecting nature’s finest materials, using time-honored techniques to meticulously handcraft a balanced product, and cast a delicate work of art that begs to be enjoyed, even while growing more complex with age.  
Robert Benedetto is acclaimed as the world’s foremost archtop luthier. Benedetto’s burgeoning passion for wine, in partnership with Miner Family Vineyard’s renowned winemaking talent, created this stunning Cabernet Sauvignon that emanates elegance, balance and symmetry – mirroring the musical instruments themselves.

The Benedetto and Miner families hope you enjoy this wine with wonderful music, food, friends and family. The wine is an artistic collaboration between the “Signature of Jazz Guitar” and the “Signature of Cabernet Sauvignon,” and the result is pure harmony.
