Friends of Flatiron Wines SF,
Sorry for the delay in getting this post up! La Paulée de San Francisco has now drawn to a close and it’s taken some time to recover from an extraordinary week of in-store and off-the-grid events throughout the City.
For those who joined us for one of our in-store meet the winemaker events, partook in a curated Burgundy producer flight in our tasting room or took home a bottle of Burgundy to enjoy at celebration festivities, we thank you for making this year’s celebration a great success! We hope you had fun, learned something new and had a chance to sample a range of diverse wines from one of the most cherished regions in the world. Luckily, your exploration need not stop here: we have a wide range of Burgundy selections always on hand and invite you to continue learning with us throughout the year.
And…as one chapter ends another begins, and boy, what a follow-up week we have in store for you all!
Tuesday 3/6, Meet the Winemaker: Antica Casa Scarpa | Since the winery’s birth in 1854, it has consistently pursued the principle of innovation within tradition. Long beloved by the giants of Piedmont, Bruno Giacosa and Angelo Gaja, Casa Scarpa has been a Flatiron Wines favorite for quite some time now. Join us in tasting the new releases and come prepared to learn about the modern evolution of Italy’s noble wine region.
Wednesday 3/7, The Champagnes of AR Lenoble | 100% family-owned and entirely independent since its inception, AR Lenoble is the rare exception in Champagne. The wines of AR Lenoble are recognized for their round and creamy texture, with finely integrated bubbles, balancing extraordinary opulence with etched elegance.
Thursday 3/8, Meet the Winemaker: Erich Krutzler of Pichler-Krutzler | Join us in welcoming Erich as he shares a curated selection of wines from his and wife Elisabeth’s up-and-coming estate in the heart of Austria’s famed Wachau region. With an emphasis on Gruner Veltliner and Riesling, be sure not to pass up on the winery’s Blaufrankisch from a single vineyard source tended by the Krutzler family for generations. If the the Pichler looks familiar, his father in-law is the esteemed, F.X. Pichler.
All in-store tastings are from 5pm – 7pm, unless otherwise stated. No need to RSVP, just grab a friend and show up. As always, low-cost to no-cost.
Lastly, as we do every Tuesday, we’re preparing quite the line-up of features for this week’s newsletter, scheduled to be sent later today. A few of the highlights this week include: a special library release of Moulin-a-Vent from Jean-Paul Brun, the grand 2016s from legendary Alsace producer Domaine Weinbach, and more.
As loyal subscribers already know, the newsletter is not only the best place to get first crack at your favorite, hard-to-find wines at special discounts but it’s also where we go in great depth about the producers, vintages, regions and trends in the world of fine wine.
Fear you might be missing out? Sign-up for our newsletter already! We send it once a week on Tuesdays, unless, you elect to receive more. You can do so by using the form below or, here, if our site’s sophisticated technology isn’t functioning as described. 😉
Cheers to you and a week full of new discoveries,
Your Friends at Flatiron Wines SF
