To score or not to score. That will be just one of the topics we’ll delve into with Oceano winemaker, Marbue Marke, in the next “Office Hours.” Marbue’s journey from his native Sierra Leone to the United States to attend college thinking that medicine would be his life’s work is a fascinating one. His shift toward wine has taken him to a number of producers of varying sizes, which has given him insight into everything from the score-or-don’t-score debate always raging in the wine world to the complexity of developing and fine tuning a “recipe” for making versions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that truly reflect their Spanish Springs provenance.
Along the way, there have been bumps and bruises in addition to accolades and triumphs. So, whether you’re a wine geek who loves the technical stuff or someone who just likes to sip a glass, you’ll enjoy hearing what Marbue has to say.
