This popular, annual event takes place in our winemaking building.
It is an intimate affair featuring tastings of our 2012 vintage in progress,
taken directly from the barrel and tank. Your guides will be
Winegrower/Partner Bob Madill and Winemaker David Breeden with Club Manager Antoinette serving as your host.
The experience includes sampling small foods with the wines to gain a better appreciation of the affinity of food and wine. Foods will be specially prepared to compliment a portion of the white wines. The menu will feature seasonal and local ingredients that complement the wines. Stay tuned for the menu which will be posted and shared in the weeks ahead of the April date.
