Here’s what we’ll be pouring in the store as well as what we’ll featuring in our newsletter this week:
Tuesday 12/18, Meet the Winemaker: Dan Petroski with Larkmead at 5pm: $10/tasting Established in 1895, Larkmead is as iconic of an estate as they come in Napa Valley. The vineyards they own are some of the most diverse geologically and topographically. That is exactly what famed winemaker Dan Petroski aims to capture in every bottle he crafts during his tenure. Join us for a memorable tasting with him and an array of Larkmead’s wines.
Wednesday 12/19, Tasting with Tess Bryant with Natural Australian wines at 5pm: If it’s been a minute since you’ve tried an Australian wine now is absolutely the time. Australia has gone through a natural wine revolution that has put it back on the radar of somms and wine geeks everywhere. Tess Bryant saw the writing on the wall as well and, in 2008, opened her own wine import company focusing on natural Aussie wines. Come and join us for an exciting tasting of the most exciting wines from Down Under. $10/tasting
Thursday 12/20, Tasting of California Reds for the Holidays at 5pm: Holiday wine choices can be tricky. That’s why we decided to put together a tasting of great California wines that we think are the best for your celebration. We’ll be tasting:
Occidental, Pinot Noir ‘Freestone’, 2016
Ramey, Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, 2014
Chappellet, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Signature, 2016
This is your opportunity to try before you buy and, even better, it’s FREE!
Friday 12/21, Tasting of More Champagne at 5pm: In case you haven’t gotten your fill of Champagne tastings at the store the past few weeks here’s one more event to sate your thirst for bubbles. Come join us to taste the following Champagnes:
