In-Store Tasting Patz and Hall and Erath Vineyards

Wednesday March 20, 5-7pm

Join us for a tasting of Patz and Hall from Sonoma and Erath Vineyards of Oregon.

ERATH VINEYARDS

Erath wines are an expression of the land that this winery has cultivated for over 40 years. A unique terroir full of iron-rich soils and a mild-temperate climate has given rise to the handcrafting phenomenon, and the art of Pinot Noir. Disciplined in approach, yet progressive in artistry, our winemaker strives to reveal the very best expression of classic Oregon Pinot; light, delicate and fruit-forward. As the winery enters its fourth decade of winemaking, Erath embraces its leadership role in producing exceptional Pinot; wines that reflect the prestige of the region and honor the rich history of the brand.

Erath Vineyard, Pinot Noir (Oregon) , 2016 $17.95

Patz and Hall

Founded in 1988, Patz & Hall has become one of California’s most highly regarded wineries with a celebrated portfolio of single-vineyard wines. Though Patz & Hall was not the first California winery to make vineyard-designate Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, it was one of the first to introduce these wines to a wider audience outside of wine clubs and tasting rooms.

To achieve their goal of making exceptional limited-production Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays, the founders held a commitment to developing close personal relationships with many of California’s finest growers, which have become the cornerstones of the winery’s success.

In Patz & Hall’s state-of-the-art, purpose-built winery in Sonoma, both traditional and cutting-edge techniques are applied, including a unique, custom barrel program. To reveal the distinct identity of the legendary sites it works with, Patz & Hall applies a consistent winemaking approach that has been refined to underscore the finesse, depth and complexity of each vineyard. Located in the Sonoma Coast, Carneros (Napa Valley), Russian River Valley, Mendocino County and Santa Lucia Highlands, these vineyards span California’s finest winegrowing regions.

Patz and Hall, Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast), 2015 $39.95

Patz and Hall, Pinot Noir , 2016 $47.95

In Store Tasting Antinori Tormaresca

March Wednesday March 27, 5-7pm

Please join us for a very special tasting of Villa Antinori’s Tormaresca!

Tormaresca wines capture the character and essence of Puglia.
A wonderful joining of classic winemaking and modern viticultural techniques, these exceptional wines are crafted from 100% estate grown fruit, a rarity among Puglian wines. Tormaresca is the only producer with vineyards in both of Puglia’s two elite winegrowing sub-regions: Salento and Castel del Monte DOC.

The Tormaresca estate is composed of two properties. Bocca di Lupo is located in the Castel del Monte DOC of northern Puglia. It offers an ideal growing environment for Chardonnay, Aglianico and Cabernet Sauvignon. Masseria Maime is located on the Salento peninsula in Southern Puglia. Its vineyards extend over half a mile along the Adriatic coast and are planted with Negroamaro, Primitivo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.

In Store with Salomon Estates and special guest Bert Salomon Jr.

Wednesday April 3, 5-7pm

For the last 226 years, Salomon Undhof has produced white wines from the best terraced sites along the Danube. Kristall clear wines with fine minerality.
The style of Salomon Undhof wines is an alliance between character, balance and harmony. Wines meant to be drunk young are fresh and subtle; wines for keeping acquire with age a luscious complexity. The wines of Salomon Undhof are found on the finest tables all over the world.

SALOMON ESTATE bottles elegant Shiraz and CabernetSauvignon. Atop the rolling hills of the Finniss River winegrowing area the grapes ripen in an idyllic microclimate. Finniss River extends along the southeast sholder of the Adelaide Hills, part of the Fleurieu Peninsula.
SALOMON ESTATE wines mirror the unique qualities of this landscape: you can feel the midday sun in their fruits and the chilled air of the nearby Southern Ocean in their acids. These exceptional wines reflect the fruit of Australia with a European approach to winemaking.

Bert and Gertrud Salomon bridge the old and the new wine world. Harvesting twice a year they commute between Finniss River/Australia and their famous white wine estate SALOMON UNDHOF/ Austria, which they manage in the eighth generation.
Always one to make the right decisions at the right time, Bert is helped by iconic Australian winemaker Mike Farmilo, longtime friend and Penfolds chief red winemaker until 1997.

KEVIN ZRALY'S ADVANCED WINE SCHOOL

Red Wines of Bordeaux - April 2, 2019 - 6:30-8:30 PM

Unlike the small parcels of land in Burgundy, Bordeaux is the largest fine red wine region in France, making the most sought after wines internationally, from retail stores, restaurants, and at wine auctions.

Bordeaux wine production is 85% red and 15% white. The most wines in my personal cellar are from Bordeaux, many of them over 50 years old!

In this class we will discuss the five major red grapes and why they are used in the blend; geographic factors like the three rivers in Bordeaux, the proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, and the soil of each region; how vinification has changed over the last 50 years; what is the future of the Bordeaux market; and the classifications of each region and what impact they have on the price of each wine.
We will taste 10 red wines from Pauillac, St. Julien, Margaux, St. Estephe, Saint Emilion, and Pomerol.
