French Wine Tasting with Thomas Meunier of Authentique Vin

Taste the passion and terroir of the small French family estates represented by Thomas Muenier’s Authentique Vin! 

“Authenticity”, a simple and humble word that sums up my conception of wine and life because, to me, both are so closely linked…. I have kept this understanding first while building my selection; finding true winegrowers that make no concessions, with distinctive personalities that are reflected in their wine. Authentic people that make authentic wine in a sustainable way which reveal the identity of a soil, a grape and a climate- the notion of Terroir.” – Thomas Muenier

Robert Sinskey Winery Tasting

As one of the first California wineries to wholly commit to organic viticulture, Carneros’ Robert Sinskey Vineyards is a true pioneer of American wine. Founded by Bob Sinskey in 1986 with a focus on producing wines that showcase elegance, finesse, and food-friendliness over the sheer power and fruitiness that California is typically known for, Sinskey’s wines are benchmarks for a new breed of California wine.
With a solid belief that artisanal winemaking begins with the care of the land, Rob Sinskey, along with winemaker Jeff Virnig, quietly converted their vineyards to organics beginning in 1991. As they honed their craft, they slowly and methodically developed biodynamic “whole farm” practices. Rob and Jeff adopted methods that not only produced wines of individuality, but also left a minimal footprint on the land. They believed in developing vineyard ecosystems with the utilization of farm animals, the development of beneficial predatory bird and animal habitat and fish friendly farming practices. Equally important, though less obvious, has been their development of a living soil system by establishing farm methods that encourage vigorous populations of microorganisms through the use of cover crops, composts, biodynamic preparations and the utilization of low impact farm implements.
Join us to welcome Phil Abram,
General Manager of Robert Sinksey Vineyards

Demarie Tasting

We are excited to welcome Paolo Demarie, winemaker of Demarie, to taste his family’s excellent Piedmont reds and whites!
At Vezza d’Alba, in the heart of the Roero region, over three generations of the Demarie Giovanni family have been running their domain with expertise, hard work and a truly passionate love for wine-growing. The domain covers over 14 hectares of vineyards that are located in the surrounding boroughs of Vezza, Castagnito, Castellinaldo and Guarene.
Demarie only uses grapes that they have personally cultivated in order to carefully select the best fruit. The vinification process includes gentle pressing, controlled temperature fermentation and aging in wooden barrels. This procedure enhances the natural characteristics of the grapes while maintaining the full aroma.
The family takes pride in using their cellar as a place where innovation and the enhancement of the quality of wines that have been handed down through generations of tradition and experience continues to flourish and thrive.

Boheme Wines Tasting

Join us to welcome Bohème winemaker Kurt Bietler and taste his world-class Pinot Noir, Syrah and Chardonnay from single vineyard sites on the Sonoma Coast. 

 

The Bohème Winery was established in 2004 in the Sonoma Coast by winemaker and winegrower Kurt Beitler. Far from the glitz, glamour and crowds of famous California regions like Napa Valley, Sonoma Coast is a rugged, isolated area whose damp, cool weather and proximity to the Pacific Ocean bring cooling fogs perfect for growing world-class Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Making great wine in this wet, windswept area takes determination and patience, but the results can be spectacular, and Bohème wines are the proof.

$35 per person*
(*tasting fee refunded with purchase of 6 Boheme wines)
We will taste 7 Boheme wines with cheese and charcuterie:

2014 English Hill Vineyard Chardonnay $50.99

Bordeaux Tasting

Bordeaux is one of the most celebrated wine regions in the world, and for great reason. But what does “Bordeaux” mean? Depending on where in this vast region the wine is produced, it can mean crisp, zippy white wines made from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon…powerful, earthy Cabernet Sauvignon from the granite soils of the Left Bank…fruity, hedonistic Merlot blends from the Right Bank…sweet liquid gold dessert wines from Sauternes…and everything in between!
Join us to taste a selection of Bordeaux wines from across the region, and learn the differences in wines from Right Bank, Left Bank, Entre-Deux-Mers, and more!

JAX Vineyards Tasting

Join us to taste the exceptional California wines of JAX Vineyards!

In 1993, David Jackson purchased a small but exceptional dry-farmed vineyard in northern Calistoga. Shortly after David purchased the vineyard his son Trent was inspired to join the new family business and build on his father’s dream. Trent produced and bottled his first vintage in his San Francisco garage and then hired consulting winemaker Kirk Venge to lead the way. Locals started to hear about this winery and started buying up the super-limited production of their Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. In 2002, Trent’s sister Kim unhesitatingly jumped on board and put the wines in the hands of San Francisco and New York restaurateurs…much to the pleasure of sommeliers and guests alike.

Expanding from their single-vineyard, family -owned Cabs, the Y3 series allows them to utilize venerable winemaker Kirk Venge’s access to premium Napa fruit of prodigious quality and expand their portfolio to other varieties. Jax Vineyards goal is to produce wines of great value that accurately reflect their varietal nature. The Y3 symbol was the brand at her grandfather’s cattle farm and is a testament to their dedication to family owned, farmed lands and the purest expression of vines and their soil.

Kim and Trent Jackson, the brother and sister team behind JAX Vineyards
