We’re super-excited to be hosting a free tasting at the Manhattan shop (929 Broadway) with California winemaker extraordinaire, Will Bucklin, from 5-7pm on Thursday, May 31.
Bucklin is a relatively young winery, but they’re making wine from one of the oldest vineyards in California, the Old Hill Ranch Vineyard. Founded in 1851 and resurrected in 1981, the vineyard is mostly Zinfandel, with the remainder a mix of about 15 other varieties. All the wines ferment using only native yeast and just a touch of new oak. With fruit coming from such an old site, the goal at Bucklin is to let the terroir speak for itself through the use of minimal intervention. And it works!
It’s not an event to be missed. Stop by from 5-7 to meet Will and taste!
