Saturday Afternoon Samplers
Drop by, belly up to the bar, and enjoy a selection of new arrivals and old favorites from visiting winemakers, local distributors or our own favorites off the shelves. Our Saturday Samplers run from 2p - 5p and are always FREE!
Few California wineries have the reputation, history and widespread respect that Ridge does. For over fifty years they have consistently focused on quality and recognized individual vineyard/regional differences. Minimal- intervention winemaking leads to wines of character with distinct flavor/texture profiles.
Join us as we explore their terrific range of Zinfandel-based reds including 2016 Lytton Springs and Three Valleys as well as a selection from their just-arriving Spring Releases.
Wednesday March 20, 5:00-7:30 pm, $15
A rugged region with some of Europe's oldest wine history, the Dalmatian coast is worthy of exploration. Imported by a Slovenian/Croatian specialty importer, these wines are from organic, small family plots and are a fun step off the beaten path. Lots to learn as you taste Plavac, Plavina, Posip and a skin contact orange wine from Slovenia. FREE
2016 is an exciting, precocious vintage up north, let's compare with 2015 (also very good) and 2012. Cornas from Vincent Paris and Courbis, St. Joseph from JL Chave, Crozes-Hermitage from Mucyn and a non-appellation from Cuilleron that punches well above its weight. $15
