Priest Ranch is dedicated to producing estate-farmed wines of uncommon quality and character. Winemaker and viticulturist Craig Becker describes their philosophy and approach as "fruit so distinctive that it requires only minimal processing, which ensures that its robust mountain flavors shine through as intensely rich, yet beautifully integrated and very approachable in the wines.”

Pop-Up Tasting: Unrivaled Quality from Burgundy!

Friday, August 10, 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

The wines of Domaine Lorenzon are truly authentic in their ability to convey their Burgundian terroir.  Winemaker Bruno Lorenzon is considered to be a leading vigernon from Central Burgundy, crafting wines at a level rivaling those of great Grand Crus of the north in the Côte d’Or. Bruno produces focused, intense wines, tending to his farm as though he is manicuring a garden. Miniscule yields, organic farming and minimal intervention in the cellar are the norm here. The result is his wines from Montagny (made of Chardonnay) tend to have a finesse and body not found elsewhere in the region.

Tonight we will have Lorenzon’s 2016 Montagny Premier Cru ‘Les Truffieres’ open to taste in a special pop-up tasting. On sale at a wonderful price tonight, don’t miss this opportunity to claim some of the best wine Montagny has to offer.

Pop-Up Tasting: Winery of the Month - Groth Vineyards & Winery

Friday, August 24, 5:00pm- 6:30pm

Groth Vineyards & Winery is a family owned winery producing Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon since 1982. The moment Dennis and Judy Groth saw the spectacular sea of vineyards from atop the Oakville Grade, they knew Oakville was not only where they wanted to make wine, but where they wanted to make their home. Thirty-five years later, Groth Vineyards & Winery is now one of the most prestigious family-owned wineries in the country.

 

Michael Weis, winemaker at Groth Vineyards & Winery since 1994, brings more than three decades of experience with Oakville grapes and wines to the job of nurturing the best possible expression of the vineyards.

 

Located in the heart of Napa Valley's most esteemed Cabernet district, the Groth Estate produces high-caliber Cabernet Sauvignon that is full, lush and exquisitely elegant. It is no surprise Robert Parker made Groth the first American winery to receive his coveted 100 point score; a deserved reward for their quality and consistency.
