Dads of Eleven Eleven and Their Favorite Library Wines

At Eleven Eleven, we commemorate the essence of family and celebrate the one we’ve created within our winery over the years. And with Father’s Day upon us, we’re taking the time to recognize the dads, and dad-equivalents, around us and are honored to even have a few fathers amongst our own team

Whether running around the playground, playing step-in tutor, or cooking delicious (yet picky-eater-satisfactory) meals, being a dad requires dedicated work day in and day out. With all of that going on top of their daily responsibilities at our winery, we commend this group of men, and are excited to introduce you to them, their favorite Eleven Eleven Library Wines, and their favorite aspects of being a father! 

DIRECTOR OF WINEMAKING & OPERATIONS, Brett Weis

Q: Favorite Library Wine?

A: 2014 Destin Estate Syrah

Q: Favorite things to do with your kids?

A: Skiing, Dancing, playing Guitar, outdoor movie nights, and making fun of their mom.

Q: Favorite thing about being a father?

A: Implanting my sense of humor in them. I love to see their smiles and genuine laughter when I do something funny. A good sense of humor can get them through tough times and at the same time, may help someone else do the same.

Q: Any wisdom or advice to other fathers?

A: Take time to talk to them, listen, and let them ask as many questions as they can. It will amaze you what they retain and understand about the world around them.

 

CELLAR MASTER, EDGAR DE HARO

Q: Favorite Library Wine?

A: 2013 Destin Estate Syrah

Q: Favorite things to do with your kids?

A: I will say my favorite thing to do with my kids is to make memories and we like to do so by going on a lot of road trips. We also enjoy watching movies, playing, and taking our dogs on walks. 

Q: Favorite thing about being a father?

A: My favorite thing about being a father is that they make me a better person with their unconditional love. I love all the cuddles, hugs, and kisses, and watching them grow up and blossom.

Q: Any wisdom or advice to other fathers?

A: Don't take time for granted because time goes by very quickly. The days might seem long but the years are very short. Also, not all arguments need to be won. 

 

CELLAR assistant, Juan Tovar

Q: Favorite Library Wine?

A: My favorite library wine is 2013 Laki’s Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Q: Favorite things to do with your kids?

A: When my seven-year-old and I go for a morning bike ride to enjoy the beautiful view of the Napa Valley. When it comes to my little princess (one-year-old) I would say that my favorite thing to do with her is to make her laugh and be chasing her everywhere because at her age she is touching, eating, climbing, running, and exploring everything! 

Q: Favorite thing about being a father?

A: My favorite thing about being a father is that I enjoy every single minute that I spend with my kids and I wouldn’t change those moments for anything in the world. 

Q: Any wisdom or advice to other fathers?

A: Some words of wisdom I would like to share is that being a father is a blessing and sometimes hard, but love and enjoy every moment with your little ones and remember, patience is key.
