We've finally (after 10 months) received our building permit and construction has finally started! Soon we will be pouring Mill Valley some of the finest wines made on the West Coast!! Opening date to be announced soon, but should be around the week of Halloween.
Tuesday, August 28th, right before Harvest 2018 kicks off, we are fitting in one more summer winemaker tasting and it will be with Sean Capiaux of Capiaux Cellars! Combining big Russian River Pinots with Sean's charming personality is guaranteed to finish off our summer series on a high note!
Wednesday, August 15th, we will be pouring a special flight from one of my favorite Oregon producers, Soter Vineyards. And the cherry on top is winemaker James Cahill will be in the house!! With it being on a 'Magnum Wednesday' it's a good bet that we'll have their Brut Rosé out of Magnum in the flight!
We have a special evening planned with Co-Winemaker and former RN74 Sommelier, Eric Railsback! The Lieu Dit label was founded from the friendship between Eric and Justin Willett (Winemaker at Tyler), focused on varietals of the Loire Valley. I really had to hunt these wines after sampling (and loving) the Sauvignon Blanc, but now they are here! And soon, so will their Winemaker and Founder!
One of my favorite producers (and favorite people in winemaker Steve Doerner), in Oregon is Cristom Vineyards. Steve has been the winemaker at Cristom since their 1st vintage in 1994, after learning under Josh Jensen at Calera Winery. The Estate Vineyard is in Eola-Amity Hills, and we will be featuring a selection from the Estate with a Pinot Gris, a Pinot Noir, and a Syrah!
The new project from winemaking legend, Isabelle Meunier! If you haven’t tried her Lavinea Wines, which are now on their 2nd vintage, and are a fan or Oregon Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, you must!! The flight will include 3 Single Vineyard wines from the 2015 Vintage.
Each year we celebrate Oregon Wine Month in May with special featured Oregon wines By-The-Glass, as well as special winery night tastings! This year we are adding Magnum Wednesday’s which will be a special bottle from one of our favorite Oregon producers available BTG! Watch our Instagram for details!
We will finally be reopening on May 5th, after of month-long hiatus to repair the damage caused by a failed water heater. The place will all be put back together, and so will our staff! It will be a celebration, so hopefully you can swing by make it all the merrier!
Keeping with the full-bodied Paso theme of December, we bring you our favorite Paso winery, Law Estate! We visited their facility in January this year and it's absolutely gorgeous. One of the best winery tastings, top-to-bottom, that I think I have ever had! Flight to include: 2014 Sagacious (Mour-Syrah-Gren), 2014 Audacious (Cab-Syrah-Gren-P. Verdot), and 2014 First Tracks (P. Verdot-Syrah-Cab). This one is not to be missed!!
Booker is a must-visit on every trip we make to Paso... if they have wine to sell... Fortunately, we have some so let's pop them open! We're going to spoil you with a vertical tasting of Oublie and Full Draw. A half glass of 2014 and 2015 of each of these extremely allocated wines! Merry Christmas!
With winter being the season for massive, full-bodied wines, we'd like to introduce you to Clos Soléne from Paso Robles! This tasting will get you to break out your calendar to plan a trip to Paso! The flight will include: 2014 Fleur de Solene (Syrah-Gren-Cab Franc), 2015 Harmonie (Grenache-Mourvedré-Syrah), and 2015 Hommage a Nos Pairs (95% Syrah).
Please join us for a special flight of wines from Qupé Winery with winemaker and founder Bob Lindquist! Bob will be sharing some rare, older vintage beauties like the 2007 Purisma Mountain Grenache, and the 2010 Bien Nacido Hillside Syrah. We'll also enjoy giving Bob a hard time as he is a die-hard Dodgers fan!
