06/08/2015 - Senses for Wine


 

Slow Living Radio discovers the story behind Sonoma Coast's new winery, Senses. A story of three school mates who reunited to make great wine - and are!   Story follows. First, a sneak preview of Noosa.

 

 

 A taste of Queensland Australia – Slow Living in its Essence





To begin our show, Slow Living's, Sally James, brings another excerpt from her Australian adventure, this time to the beautiful resort town of Noosa, in Queensland.  Nestled on a white sandy beach, lined with bars and world class restaurants, Noosa has something for everyone -  a main street brimming with wonderful boutiques, gelaterias and cafes, surrounded by waterways that are home to a myriad of wildlife and native flora, not to mention jaw-dropping architectural masterpieces, ferries bob up the rivers and estuaries to for eco-veiwing and to see the everglades.

Thanks to Seahaven Noosa, for Sally’s accommodation, positioned with the beach to one side and the action of Noosa’s main street on the other. The perfect getaway for families and couples. And you can’t miss dining at Sails Restaurant and Berardo’s Bistro on the Beach, and a must is people watching at Aromas.

A trip to Noosa wouldn’t be complete without a drive to the world renowned Eumundi Markets to peruse the amazing multitude of wares, with a laid back, fresh and innovative lunch at the Bohemian Bungalow, or to the Buderim Ginger Factory to eat, learn, buy and play with all things gingery!
 
 
 

From there she heads up into the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, to the Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat, a most romantic indulgent getaway snuggled into the rich lush rain forest, babbling brook to boot.  Romantic, relaxing, reviving and private.  Then a divine dinner at The Long Apron (think French Laundry meets Noma), brings her trip to a sad close.  Read more at her next post on Australian Café Life.

Christopher Strieter and Max Theriot
Senses Wines
 

Senses is the dream of three childhood friends - Chris, Max and Myles -  who reunited after various journeys with the vision to produce small-batch Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from their family-owned vineyards.
 
 
 

Senses produces high quality wines from the West Sonoma Coast in northern California, specifically in their hometown of Occidental. The West, or ‘True’ Sonoma Coast, is known for delicate, nuanced wines that exhibit balance and depth on the palate.
 

Christopher Strieter Co-founder

Chris combined his dream to own a business with his passion for wine when he partnered with Max and Myles. Rather than pursuing a career in consulting, he worked the cellar of a Sonoma Coast winery after graduating from Claremont with his Master's degree in Finance. This experience and knowledge sparked his interest and ultimately led to the beginning of Senses. Chris is intimately involved with all aspects of the business.
 
 
 
 
Max Thieriot Co-founder


Max grew up in the vineyard. Before he could walk, he was riding in a tractor with his father - farming their family's esteemed Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards. Max is excited to take his passion and creativity from his career in acting and apply it to making world-class wines. He's involved with many aspects of Senses from vineyard acquisitions and general operations to brand development and wholesale sales.
