Nicolas Potel Tasting

February 1 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Maison Nicolas Potel was founded by Nicolas Potel in 1997 and is managed today in the spirit of its founder to source and vinify small lots of hand crafted wines from selected appellations throughout Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits. All wines bearing the name “Nicolas Potel” are vinified in house (Maison”) from hand sorted old-vine parcels of grapes. No negociant wine is ever included in these exceptional wines. The cellars are contemporary to the extreme located in a “loft” hangar opposite the train station in Nuits St Georges. All vines are at least 35 years-old; the average age is 60. Selection massale vines are used, propagated from cuttings taken from selected, older vines. These vines are naturally self-regulating, with an optimal balance of vegetation to fruit, producing low yields of small, thick-skinned, concentrated grapes which result in wines of great personality and character. No acidification, enzymes, selected yeasts or added chemicals are used, and minimal sulfur. Aging on fine lees brings “more intensity of aromas” while there is minimal racking to avoid reduction. New oak is used judiciously. The goal is to “respect the terroir by natural winemaking.

Graziano Family of Wines Tasting

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

Graziano Family wines are handcrafted with history, heritage and care in Mendocino County. They are consistently full-bodied, uniquely flavored and finely balanced. Specializing in classic Italian and unique old world varietals, our wines are being recognized at pinnacles in America winemaking. Discover our passion in every bottle.

Current labels for the Graziano Family of Wines are Saint Gregory, Monte Volpe, Enotria and Graziano. The four labels are crafted to preserve each variety’s integrity by employing time honored Old World cellar practices perfected by the gentle application of modern technology.

The intensity of the fruit flavors and the balance of natural acidity of Mendocino hillside grown grapes, allow great flexibility at every level of wine making. Each variety’s character is preserved and highlighted because we are blessed with fruit that need little manipulation or intrusive intervention.

Our wines are proudly distributed nationally and internationally. Our wide variety of award winning wines will pair beautifully with all of your favorite recipes, with versatility to go from your private dining table to an elegant affair.

“Enotria” is Greg’s label for Piedmontese grapes. We will be starting with the Moscato as well as the tasty Dolcetto. These wines show the true essence of these grapes, but with the added benefit of some California sunshine pumped into them. Stunning wines through and through.

“Monte Volpe” is Greg’s label for Italian grapes without Piedmontese origins (originally this was supposed to be for Tuscan varietals, but it’s grown beyond that particular boundary). The drivers in this line are the Primo Rosso and Primo Bianco blends.  Think of these as Italian varietal kitchen sink wines, with obscure grapes in them that you didn’t even know were planted in California.

“St. Gregory” is Greg’s label for all things Pinot. We will be starting with the Mendocino Pinot Noir (he also does a St. Gregory Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Meunier).

“Graziano” is Greg’s label for “everything else”.  The clear driver here is the Mendocino Zinfandel. We are also bringing in the (very tasty) Petit Sirah as well as the Chenin Blanc. Greg also makes a Single Vineyard Zin which we will present when it is released.

Silver Oak Tasting

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

**THIS EVENT HAS REACHED CAPACITY**

Image result for silver oak winery

Silver Oak began over a handshake between two friends with a bold vision: focus on one varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon, aged exclusively in American oak and worthy of cellaring for decades to come.

Raymond Twomey Duncan, a Colorado entrepreneur who began investing in California vineyards in the late 1960s, and Justin Meyer, a winemaker and former Christian Brother, began in a Napa Valley dairy barn in 1972, producing only 1,100 cases of their inaugural vintage.

Over the next two decades, Silver Oak grew in popularity. Our Napa Valley and Alexander Valley Cabernets sold quickly upon their release from the winery and became a sought-after staple on restaurant wine lists around the country. After selecting Daniel Baron to succeed him as winemaker in 1994, Justin retired, selling his share of Silver Oak to the Duncan family in 2001.

With David R. Duncan serving as President and CEO and Tim Duncan as Executive Vice President, the Duncan family continues to operate the winery to this day.

In 2006, a fire destroyed our historic Oakville winery. It was a difficult and emotional event; but in hindsight, a blessing in disguise. When we regrouped on the morning of the fire, we knew we had to rebuild, and it wasn’t long before the excitement of a new, state-of-the-art winery overcame our sense of loss.

Today, we are applying this experience from our LEED Platinum Oakville winery toward a new winery in the Alexander Valley. Set amidst 70 acres of estate vineyards along the rolling foothills of the Mayacamas mountains, our new Alexander Valley winery – set to open for harvest 2017 – will push industry design and innovation standards through alternative energy sources, innovative water reuse systems and reclaimed building materials.

Freeman Tasting with Akiko & Ken Freeman

February 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Since 2001, Freeman has been one of the great pioneers of cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, charting a course to the western edges of California winegrowing, where the influence of the Pacific Ocean shapes the character of the wines. In doing so, they have helped to define a more balanced, sophisticated and thoughtful style of winemaking—a style that has been embraced by connoisseurs and collectors around the world.
