thurs28Pinot Noir Lovers Alert! West Coast Craft Producers | June 28 | 6:30 to 8pm | $20
Pinot Loving Friends! We’re always on the prowl for the subtle but unmistakable fragrance and tender touch evoked by our best memories of Pinot Noir. Join us as we navigate across the globe to experience unique, boutique, small production Pinots.  We’ll dive into wines from Willamette Valley (Denison Cellars), Sonoma Coast (Senses Wines), and the Russian River Valley (Gros Ventre), then travel across the Atlantic to Burgundy (Domaine d’Ardhuy), Austria (Schwarz from Burgenland) and Germany (Heyman-Löwenstein from the Mosel). With winemakers such as Manfred Krankl (SIne Qua Non), Philippe Melka (experience at Haut Brion, Petrus & Dominus), Chris Pittenger (formerly Williams Selyem & Marcassin), and Jennifer Williams (formerly Spottswoode) we’ll be sure to show off some extremely small production wines that are so limited, many are not distributed!  We’ll tuck in stylish dry rosé and other surprises for fun.  But super-fine Pinot will rule the evening.

thurs19“Place Over Process”, European Cellars Stars | Thursday, July 19 | 6:30 to 8pm | $20
Importer Eric Solomon has a touch of genius when it comes to finding wines from France and Spain that speak of the places they’re grown. If you had have asked a young Eric what he wanted to do when he grew up, he would have told you he wanted to be a rock drummer! Lucky for us terroir-loving wine drinkers, fate led him to found European Cellars in 1990: he was a pioneering proponent of the Rhône, the Languedoc and Roussillon. His personal connection with Priorat (he married an estate owner) opened up the vista of Spain, with equally innovative and distinctive wines. We’ll taste a broad range of treats from Eric’s dynamic producers, including French estates Domaine de la Janasse & Domaine Giraud (Châteauneuf-du-Pape), Domaine Lafage (Roussillon), Domaine la Garrigue (Vacqueyras), Château Puech-Haut (Languedoc).  Dipping into Spain, we’ll meet Burgans (Galicia), Herència Altés (Catalonia) and Castaño (Murcia).  ‘Place Over Process’ is the driving motto, come taste why!
