SPECIAL ROSE TASTING 4:00 -7:00 PM Thursday Evening, August 18th $5.00 Per Person

California countryside reminds many of wine regions in Italy. Not surprisingly, there has been an increase in Italian varieties planted here, especially in the Sierra Foothills. Samples might include Charbono, Barbera, or Primitivo with some fun foods to match. Sorry…no tasting on Sunday, August 21.

From GSM blends to “kitchen sink” reds, we’ll taste some wines that mix it up.

JOE'S CHEESE CORNER


 

Nicasio Valley

With the growing interest in organic products, here is a new certified organic California farmstead cheese from Nicasio Valley in west Marin County. Handcrafted in their nearby creamery the family uses authentic, traditional recipes from the alpine village of our ancestral homeland, Maggia, Switzerland. It is a soft ripening cheese made in 3 inch rounds and aged for at least 5 weeks. It's a delicate, lightly washed rind cheese with a powerful aroma and a rich pleasant flavor. On these warm summer days consider serving with your favorite session beer or a citrusy Sauvignon Blanc or Albarino.

       
  TIPS FROM TOM
            "The Wine Guy"

 Lodi has become a popular wine country destination for many of our patrons. But most think of the region as a red wine haven. Over the past few years Lodi has established itself as a leader in producing memorable dry whites, and especially from the lesser known varietals such as Grenache Blanc, Albarino and Verdelho. Some of our favorite producers include St. Amant Winery, Bokisch, Oak Farm, Harney Lane and our newest arrival, Acquiesce Vineyards, who only produces white wines! Check out these award winning wines and enjoy the white side of Lodi.
