Tuesday, May 19th Russian River Valley VIEW MENU
Tucked away in the middle of Sonoma County lies the Russian River Valley. The foggy, cool climate mixed with millions of years of volcanic activity has created what’s known today as Goldridge soil – a golden loam and sandstone mixture. Since the earliest Mediterranean immigrants that made the trip to the West Coast in the 19th century, the region has been known for its Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines, but at this point, the appellation produces plenty of other varieties as well.
Tuesday, May 26th Loire Valley VIEW MENU
How can one even begin to describe the significance and impact the Loire Valley has had on the winemaking world in a few simple sentences? To speak of the elegance of Sancerre or Pouilly Fumé would only be discussing one varietal in a couple appellations of one sub-region in the Loire. Together, the Upper Loire, Central Loire, and Pays Nantais produce white wines that are good enough to make you question if any other white wine you’ve had was really as memorable.
Tuesday, June 2nd Rosé VIEW MENU
Picture a king in the Middle Ages drinking red Bordeaux at a feast. What comes to mind? A fur cloak and a golden goblet, naturally. What might surprise you is that inside the goblet wasn’t the Cabernet Sauvignon or Cabernet Franc we associate with Bordeaux today, but rather a liquid that much more closely resembled rosé. In fact, some historians believe that rosé may be the oldest type of wine since winemakers’ knowledge of extended maceration and hard pressing techniques are relatively modern. One thing we do know is that it is delicious. Every day is rosé season.
