A vertical Barbaresco tasting with Fratelli Grasso **SOLD OUT**


If you love Piedmont reds, you should not miss this unique tasting experience as we sample a vertical lineup (different vintages of the same wine) of Fratelli Grasso Barbarescos!

About Fratelli Grasso
Fratelli Grasso, in the town of Treiso in the Barbaresco DOCG, is owned and operated by brothers Luigi and Alfredo Grasso. The estate was founded in 1900 by Valentino Grasso, the brothers’ grandfather but, like so many other estates in the region, estate bottling didn’t begin until the 1970s. The family has always adopted a very traditional approach to winemaking and the resultant wines are long-lived and require time in the bottle to come round. They have approximately seven hectares of Nebbiolo with a full south facing at a high altitude for the zone. Southern exposure and excellent vineyard work help the grapes ripen fully for cellar master/enologist Gianfranco Cordero (with assistance from Marc de Grazia). Grasso favors an approach in the cellar that results in maximum freshness and vitality. The Barbaresco offers ethereal rose petal aromas that are found only in low yield, pure Nebbiolo.

Bonny Doon Tasting

Join us for a tasting of one of the most innovative, forward-thinking and downright fun wineries in the U.S.–Bonny Doon Vineyard!
While Bonny Doon Vineyard began with the (in retrospect) foolish attempt to replicate Burgundy in California, Randall Grahm realized early on that he would have far more success creating more distinctive and original wines working with Rhône varieties in the Central Coast of California. The key learning here (achieved somewhat accidentally but fortuitously) was that in a warm, Mediterranean climate, it is usually blended wines that are most successful. In 1986 Bonny Doon Vineyard released the inaugural vintage (1984) of Le Cigare Volant, an homage to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and this continues as the winery’s flagship/starship brand.
Since then, Bonny Doon Vineyard has enjoyed a long history of innovation – the first to truly popularize Rhône grapes in California, to successfully work with cryo-extraction for sundry “Vins de Glacière,” the first to utilize microbullage in California, the first to popularize screwcaps for premium wines, and, quite significantly, the first to embrace true transparency in labeling with its ingredient labeling initiative.
Please help us welcome Keith Shulsky of Bonny Doon Vineyard

Elyse Winery Tasting

In 1983, Nancy and Ray Coursen arrived in California from Cape Cod to fulfill Ray’s dream of making wine and Nancy’s taste for adventure.  After working harvest at Mt. Eden Winery in Saratoga, they moved to Napa Valley and became innkeepers for a bed & breakfast. Ray then spent formative time at Tonella Vineyard Management, where he gained philosophical perspective and practical knowledge working in the vineyards.  Ray’s nine year tenure at Whitehall Lane Winery under the tutelage of Art Finkelstein first as a cellar worker and then as head winemaker honed his skills in the art of blending and was the inspiration for Ray’s winemaking style today.

In 1987, Ray & Nancy started Elyse Winery with 286 cases of Zinfandel from the Morisoli Vineyard, which is still a cornerstone vineyard source for the winery. After a decade of nomadic winemaking at various custom crush facilities, in 1997 they purchased a small winery and vineyard on Hoffman Lane, the home of Elyse Winery and tasting room.  Since then, they have established a reputation for producing some of the most interesting, delicious and terroir-driven wines in California.
We will be tasting 8 Elyse wines, accompanied with cheese and charcuterie: 
2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Holbrook Mitchell Vineyard, Napa Valley  $51.99
2014 “L’Ingenue,” Naggiar Vineyard, Sierra Foothills  $20.99
2013 “C’est si Bon,” Naggiar Vineyard, Sierra Foothills  $20.99
