Gary Farrell Tasting Event

February 21 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Gary Farrell is a pioneer in Russian River Valley single vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines. Located in the heart of the valley, Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery offers a proud 30-year winemaking history and a unique sense of place. Perched atop a ridge along winding Westside Road, the winery offers a breathtaking view of the sweeping valley below. Over the years, Gary Farrell Winery has established close, long-term relationships with many of Russian River Valley’s most celebrated and sought-after vineyards including Rochioli, Allen, and Hallberg to name a few. The winery is currently owned by the Vincraft Group and in 2012, winemaker Theresa Heredia was hired to maintain Gary Farrell’s legacy while striving to drive quality to even higher level. Gary Farrell Winery helped put Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the world stage, and the hallmark Gary Farrell wine style remains one of balance, elegance, texture and sense of place.

We at Vinum 55 are proud to announce the thirteenth volume of our Wines of the World Program

 

We at Vinum 55 are proud to announce the thirteenth volume of our Wines of the World ProgramLocated along the western coastline of the Iberian Peninsula, Portugal borders the Atlantic Ocean to the west and south, and Spain to the east and north.  With its rugged terrain and far southwestern location, the country is one of the most isolated areas of Europe. While not generally considered alongside the great wine-producing countries of Europe, Portugal produces a wide array of quality wines and some of the most classical dessert and fortified wines produced in the world.  Once passed over, the table wines of Portugal today are garnering much attention, and a newfound commitment to quality is beginning to take hold in this country.  Through a long history of wine production that spans thousands of years, Portugal is finally gaining respect.

Dont miss this fantastic opportunity to drink amazing wines.

Vinum55’s Barrel Selection Tasting of The Four Graces!

February 24 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Every year we at Vinum55 head up to Willamette Valley for the Pinot Noir Barrel Auction.  The Pinot Noir Auction captures the essence of place through the lens of vintage and variety.  The trade-only auction honors the pioneering spirit of the Willamette Valley and, for two days, offers industry movers and shakers a series of special tastings and gatherings, culminating in a live auction. We went, we saw, we came home with a barrel!

Now we are to going to share that barrel from The Four Graces with you!

Our special barrel:

The 2015 Noir la Grace auction lot is a true field blend.  Block 18, located at the top of our Doe Ridge vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, was planted in 2005 with an adventurous spirit.  No single clone was selected for the block, we instead planted a randomized mix of Dijon clones with the hope of truly capturing the essence of the terroir.  The block is harvested when the various clones reach a harmony of ripeness.  After fermentation this wine was aged for 18 months in French oak. This field blend block also goes into our Doe Ridge Estate wine, which is the pinnacle blend from our vineyard in Yamhill-Carlton. One barrel, (60 bottles) is all that will ever exist.

Join us for a truly one-of-a-kind chance to taste this exceptional lot of Pinot Noir and hopefully snag some for yourself.

There’s a very limited amount of this wine available so get your RSVP in today!

Vinum55 PRESENTS: PAIRING Wine AND Food VOLUME I: CHEESE AND WINE.

March 2 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

This event is now sold out.  To get on the waitinglist please email jared@vinum55.com

 

We at Vinum 55 are proud to announce an all new educational program that focuses on the marriage between wine and food.

How it Works:

Each month, our Sommeliers will select a unique lineup of high-quality wines and foods to pair with eachother. Some events will focus on specific varietals, and others will focus on broader themes.  Our intent is to provide members with opportunities to learn more about using their palates to enhance their dining experiences.  We will take a commonsense and scientific approach to pairing food and wines based on body, flavors, sensory perception, palate awareness, and pure joy.  Of course, there will also be opportunities to order your favorite wines from the tastings.  We invite you to join us for our inagural event on Friday, February 2nd, 2018.  The focus will be on the basics: Wine and Cheese Pairings.

Tickets to this event, because it includes food and service, is $20 for Vinum55 members, and $40 for non-members. However, if a non-member joins Vinum55 that night, the $20 will be refunded.  Space is limited to 14 people per event, so secure your spots quickly.

Kerr Cellars Tasting Event With Cristie Kerr

March 8 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Cristie Kerr – Founder, CRISTIE KERR WINES

Cristie Kerr is one of the most accomplished professional golfers of her generation, with two Major Championships and 19 LPGA titles to her name. She is a widely recognized breast cancer spokesperson whose foundation, Birdies for Breast Cancer, has raised millions of dollars to help fight the disease. Her passion for wines began in 2003 while playing in the Napa Valley and visiting its fabled vineyards. In 2008 she created Curvature Wines, a partnership with Suzanne Pride Bryant, co-owner of Pride Mountain Vineyard and a breast cancer survivor. Proceeds from Curvature benefit breast cancer programs and the wines received numerous accolades, including being served in the White House at affairs of State.

At Kerr Cellars a meticulous attention to detail in winemaking from soil to bottle is our labor of love. Our small batch wines are produced from the finest and most exclusive vineyards, and each vintage is handcrafted by winemaker Helen Keplinger.

Helen Keplinger – WINEMAKER, KERR CELLARS

Helen Keplinger has been the Winemaker for Kerr Cellars since early 2013. She is widely recognized as one of the top winemakers in California. After graduating from UC Davis with a Masters Degree in Enology she worked with industry all-stars Heidi Barrett, Kathy Joseph, Michel Rolland, and David Abreu to name a few. Helen proceeded to build her resume as the winemaker at some of the most recognized wineries in California including Cellers Melis (Priorat), Kenzo Estate, Fort Ross, Sarocka, Scully, Arrow & Branch, Bryant Family Vineyards and Grace Family Vineyards.

In 2006 Helen started Keplinger Wines with her husband DJ Warner and since then, Keplinger Wines has sold out of every vintage they produced and received incredible reviews along the way. Helen was named “Winemaker of the Year” by Food and Wine magazine in 2012 and in 2014 she graced the cover of Wine Spectator magazine’s June issue. The cover story described Helen’s work as “one of the most exciting and innovative wineries to emerge in California in years.”

Join us Thursday, Mar. 8th at Vinum55 Scottsdale to taste these great wines from Kerr Cellars and a meet & greet with the founder, Cristie Kerr.
