'Poised CA Pinot Noir'
Friday, July 12th
5:00-7:00 p.m.


CA Pinot Noir is anything but the homogeneously fruity, somewhat boozy, always-earlier-drinking-and-one-dimensional shadow of Burgundy that it’s still too often assumed to be. From Mendocino to Santa Cruz Mountains, and from the Sonoma Coast, with its exposure to the vagaries of the sea and its weather, to the more inland Sierra Foothills, California Pinot Noir can’t possibly be painted with a broad brush and still be spoken of accurately. Indeed, California is such an exciting place for Pinot Noir right now because of the range of microclimates and soils in which it can be grown. Differences in elevations, underlying geology, exposures to the ocean, fog, daytime sun, evening chill, divergent winemaking philosophies, and more continue to create a stunning mosaic of Pinot Noirs throughout California.

2:00-5:00 p.m.


Anthony Thevenet was raised around his grandfather’s vineyards in Morgon. When his grandfather passed away Anthony inherited 3 ha of vines, and most recently in 2014, he inherited a parcel in Côte du Py. Morgon is easily one of the most celebrated cru names in Beaujolais and is situated right in the heart of Beaujolais. With a semi-continental climate, which enjoys long, hot summers and cold winters, the region is perfect for the Gamay grape. The sandy and rocky soils of Morgon provide a certain structure and richness that is rarely matched by other crus. The famous hill of Cote du Py has a unique soil type that is mostly composed of schist, blue granite and volcanic rock produces the most powerful examples of Beaujolais. Morgon may be the Beaujolais’ quintessential village.

Friday Nite Tasting featuring
'Bordeaux Blends of CA'
Friday, July 5th
5:00-7:00 p.m.


The term “Bordeaux style” is typically used to refer to a wine, not directly to grapes. In the actual Bordeaux region of France, red wines are blended from the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petite Verdot grapes. Versions of these kinds of wines are made all over the world, and outside of Bordeaux, they’re often referred to as “Bordeaux-style.” But it’s not a regulated term, so whether and how it’s used will vary from vintner to vintner. Some people also refer to Bordeaux-style reds as “claret,” an old term that goes back to the wine trade in England. Others use the term “Meritage”, a trademarked name for registered wines that are blended from Bordeaux grape varieties.

'The Range of Spain'
Sat. & Sun., July 6th & 7th
2:00-5:00 p.m.


“Petit Pissares,”is a revelatory Priorat: Based entirely on the region’s two traditional grapes, Grenache and Carignane, this is not nearly as massive as most reds from this fast-rising region. It is characteristically dark and voluptuous, yes, but its energy, perfume, and more modest scale are a thing apart for those accustomed to more overpowering styles of Priorat. This is old-vine Grenache and Carignane with a distinctive soil character; brightness and drinkability; and an extremely reasonable price. Texturally, it is velvety but bright—there’s plenty of delicious fruit extract without being excessive, with the slightest kiss of toasty oak and stony minerality on the finish.

 

Friday Nite Tasting featuring
'Stars of CA Zinfandel' 
Friday, June 28th
5:00-7:00 p.m.


Zinfandel was introduced to California during the Gold Rush somewhere between 1852 and 1857 and became widely planted because it thrived so well in the state’s climate and soil. Today, Zinfandel is the third-leading winegrape variety in California, with more than 44,400 acres planted and 416,615 tons crushed in 2016, according to the California Department of Food and Agriculture. It is grown in 45 of California’s 58 counties. Promoted to the world by the state’s vintners for more than 130 years, Zinfandel has grown beyond cult status and is now internationally recognized due to the unique character and high quality wines that are produced only in the Golden State.

Zah Winesis a project created by winemaker Jason Lee.  The name “Zah” comes from the Chinese character 炸 meaning “to burst” or “to explode”.  Zah Wines aims to craft a range of wines that burst with flavor and excite the palate at first sip. Jason’s passion and enthusiasm for wine led him to get his degree in  Wine and Viticulture in the heart of California’s Central Coast wine region. His adventures in wine have led him to work at wineries in the Northern Rhone of France, King Valley of Australia, Hawke’s Bay New Zealand, and most recently,  the cool Sonoma Coast. Jason’s mission is to source organically grown grapes and make wines with minimal manipulation to let the varietal speak for itself.

'Always a Reason for Riesling' 
Friday, June 21st
5:00-7:00 p.m.


The Dönnhoff family first came to the Nahe region over 200 years ago, and after establishing a modest farm slowly evolved into a full-fledged wine estate. Helmut Dönnhoff has been making the wine since 1971, and now his son Cornelius works alongside in the winery and vineyards. Their holdings represent some of the best in the Nahe and all of Germany. Although the Nahe is a dry region, Dönnhoff does not water their vineyards as to encourage deep rooted vines. The soil is covered with organic material like straw and compost to preserve water and to avoid evaporation and erosion in heavy rains. Grapes are always picked by hand at Dönnhoff over 2-3 passes through each vineyard. To preserve laser-like focus and clarity in the wines, the grapes are pressed as soon as possible – within 3 hours of picking. Wines are fermented in traditional German casks, as well as stainless steel with spontaneous fermentations.

'Native to Italy'
Sat. & Sun., June 22nd & 23rd
2:00-5:00 p.m.


Friulano(formerly Tocai Friulano, and also known as Sauvignonasse) is a grape variety most famous for its role in the white wines of Friuli, northeastern Italy. These wines, usually varietal, are lively and fruit-driven with notes of citrus and almond, and often a touch of minerality.

The grape is thought to be native to South West France, where it is known as Sauvignonasse or Sauvignon Vert. However, it has moved on from its home and into northeastern Italy, where it has quickly become one of the region's most classic styles. 

Pairing Suggestions for Friulano:

* Pan-fried white fish with lemon butter    and capers
* Prosciutto with rocket and mozzarella
* Roast chicken with thyme-infused       stuffing

Madiranis a village in the gently rolling countryside of Gascony, in the far southwest of France. The area is famous for its indulgent gastronomy and rich, concentrated, robust red wines. By law, Tannat grapes must make up between 60 and 80 percent of any wine bearing the Madiran appellation. The remainder can be made up with any combination of the Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, and a little-known Gascon variety, Fer Servadou. The highest profile winemaker of both appellations is Alain Brumont. His company owns the well-known Château Bouscassé.The typical Madiran wine becomes approachable only after several years’ cellaring. Patience is rewarded with rich, fruit-forward wines complex in both aroma and structure.

Côte West is a family-run urban winery based in Oakland, California. Bret Hogan is the co-founder and winemaker of Côte West. Growing up in Carmel Valley he developed an early appreciation for the natural beauty of the California landscape. He received a Masters degree in Viticulture & Enology from UC Davis and got his hands dirty interning at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars in Napa and Domaine des Comtes Lafon in Meursault Burgundy. Upon returning from France, he set out to combine that tradition-steeped approach with his training at Davis in order to create Old World-style yet undeniably Californian wines. Bret's favorite pairing is Côte West Chardonnay with crab cakes.

Roughly 93% of Northern California Appellations are planted to only eight grape varieties, the remaining seven percent is home to hundreds of lesser known grapes.The2017 Jolie Laide Trousseau Grisis made from  rare, near-extinct vines. Light and pretty, wildly floral yet savory, with a visceral depth. It may not fit into a conventional category, making it seem a bit unfamiliar at first, but continues to surprise and delight. An inebriating blend of wild pomelo, summer melon, stone fruit, white tea, and sweet earth all weave with finessed length and elegant palate presence.

Seventeenth-century monks in the region wrote about the wine from these hills as being “fresh and delicate,” and, indeed, the Fauryshave always accentuated Syrah’s potential for making elegant wines of real finesse. Their Saint Joseph rouge in particular stands out as a thing of purity and grace. Vinifications are gentle, with about one third of the fruit going through whole-cluster fermentation for textural and aromatic lift.

'Canary Islands'
Friday, May 10th
5:00-7:00 p.m.


The Canary Islands supposedly derived their name from the large dogs (cane) that inhabited the islands when the Spanish arrived. Because of their unique subtropical location and weather patterns, the north slope of Tenerife boasts the "World's most perfect weather", so the locals claim. Temperatures range from 60-75F  year round which make for perpetual spring-like conditions, and banana plantations exist side by side with prime vineyard sites. This unique situation in the fine wine growing world seems to have caused the development of the Cordon Trenzado (braided) style of pruning where 10-20 meter long cordons stretch out from the mother trunk. 200+ year old pre-phylloxera vines are common in the Valle de la Orotava and Jonatan Garcia Lima has taken on the mission of preserving this unique style of vineyard management on the slopes of El Teide, the highest peak in Spain.

'Favorites for Mom'
Sat. & Sun., May 11th & 12th
2:00-5:00 p.m.


Moms didn’t come up with Mother’s Day as an easy way to get breakfast in bed. And despite how it seems, card companies didn’t invent it as a way to make a few (billion) bucks. There’s more to the history of Mother’s Day than meets the eye. In addition to the history of the holiday, there’s a whole lot of controversy. There are debates about who came up with the holiday first and lawsuits about who can use the name “Mother’s Day.” One of the founders tried to get the holiday scratched from the books, even after fighting to get it recognized as a national day. Besides all that, there’s the question of where that pesky apostrophe goes. Controversy aside, we know what Mom really wants for Mother's Day. Whether you pop on by to grab a couple of sure-to-please bottles, or bring Mom with you to taste through and pick out her favorite. Wine is always a winner.

'The Nature of Nebbiolo'
Friday, May 3rd
5:00-7:00 p.m.

Nebbiolo is a red wine that was born in the mountains of northern Italy in the region of Piedmont. This is the region that’s famous for its Barolo and Barbaresco wine, which can fetch hundreds of dollars per bottle, but what many don’t realize is that Nebbiolo is the sole grape used to make these high-end wines. Often times, the Nebbiolo grapes used to make Barolo and Barbaresco are grown within feet of the grapes used to make Nebbiolo, and the only difference is the perceived quality of one vine over another. Barolo and Barbaresco can only be made in a few villages in the region of Piedmont; if your vineyard is not located in one of those villages, you can’t make Barolo or Barbaresco.  But Nebbiolo is grown all over the region, not just in the villages that use it to create the high end wines.

Kitson Winesis the dream of Brad and Svetlana Kitson. They had a passion to make great wine and offer it at a reasonable price.  Their intention is to stay small so that each wine receives the care it deserves.The journey began with a return to school to get a master’s degree in Viticulture & Enology at U.C. Davis.  While in school, Brad began to work at Farella Vineyard in the Napa Valley.  Farella offered the hands-on opportunity to gain immediate experience with the most compelling Bordeaux, Burgundy and Rhone varietals.  The next step was to become a consulting winemaker, the highlight being the opportunity to make Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay for Napa Valley estate winery Georg Rafael Vineyards. We hope you enjoy this delightful Red Blend!

Friday, April 26th
5:00-7:00 p.m.

Stony Hill Chardonnaysare some of the most highly-sought-after California wines. Their style is best described as lean, bright, elegant and food friendly. To achieve this style, they crush and press the grapes with minimum skin contact and ferment in neutral oak cooperage. When fermentation is complete, they rack the wine off the lees, in order to avoid the development of a yeasty flavor in the wine. They then age it in the neutral oak. 2012 gave Stony Hill an absolutely perfect growing season with no rain during May fruit set, consistent warm days with no hot spells through the summer and a dry, sunny harvest in September. The resulting 2012 Chardonnay is pale straw in color with bright, fresh aromas of pears and apples and a hint of lemon zest.

The last decades of the last century have seen a dynamic resurgence in Campania wine, and distinctive wines have popped up in many provinces; bringing the DOC denominations from nine in 1975, to nineteen by the end of 2000. The region has more than 100 interesting native varieties.Today’s wine styles are fruit forward and youthful: the whites are known for their aromatic characters, often redolent of the local flora, while the reds (mainly from Aglianico) have big personalities which require a little ageing. Falanghinais known for its citrus blossom aromas, in particular bitter orange. On the palate it typically shows classic apple and pear flavors, with spicy or mineral notes.

Years ago, Kivelstadt Cellarswas only an idea: the idea that people deserve to drink wines with soul. These wines would come from vineyards with heritage, farmed with the utmost respect for nature, and fermented with low intervention. A combination of these ideals has evolved into a lifestyle. A lifestyle which, vintage after vintage, results in delicious wines which pay homage to California’s terroir. A unique varietal, Charbono was widely planted all over California in the beginning of the 20th century. While it has been ripped out or grafted over in favor of more mainstream varietals, there is a small amount remaining in the North Coast. Kivelstadt was lucky enough to get their hands on a two-acre block at Venturi Vineyard and never looked back! They make this rare and unique variety in a light and fun way in order to combine its brooding strength with a light and fun style.

'Salute to the Notre Dame'
Friday, April 19th
5:00-7:00 p.m.

The Cathedral of Notre-Dame, where a large fire broke out on Monday evening, is among the most famous landmarks in Paris, drawing about 13 million visitors a year. The cathedral, whose name means Our Lady, is the seat of the archbishop of Paris. Let us cheers to the incredible history of this historic monument:
* Henry VI of England was made king of France inside Notre-Dame in 1431.
* Napoleon Bonaparte, who also sought to save the storied cathedral, was crowned emperor there in 1804.
* In 1909 Joan of Arc was beatified in the cathedral by Pope Pius X.
* The cathedral was also home to the crown of thorns and the tunic of Saint Louis. The crown of thorns is believed to be the same that Jesus Christ wore during the crucifixion (it is rumored to have been saved from the fire). It was first housed at the Ste. Chapelle in Ile de la Cité, but then moved to Notre Dame.

Arnot-Roberts was founded in 2001 in Healdsburg, California by childhood friends Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts. Duncan and Nathan grew up in the midst of vineyards and winemakers in the Napa Valley. Each took an interest in the wine industry, with Nathan following his father’s lead as a cooper, and Duncan pursuing winemaking in renowned wineries in Napa and Sonoma.
The focus of this two person operation is on small lot, single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir, as well as several other varieties uncommon in Northern Californian vineyards. Through good fortune and a keen eye, they have  identified vineyard sources that are both singular and extraordinary. Collaboration with dedicated and passionate growers is paramount in the farming of these sites and vinification of their wines.

Sauvignon Blanc is the white grape in Sancerre, and there is no mistaking it atChez Crochet. For such a forceful and “minerally” white wine, it shows a tremendous amount of beauty and delicacy. There are aromas of kefir lime, lemon, lemon peel, ripe green melon, cucumber, freshly crushed limestone rocks and gunflint.
