 This Saturday we will do a tasting of five new wines from Peterson Wineries featuring Jim Howe from JLH Wines to discuss these wines. As these wines are higher priced this Tasting is $12 per person or $20 per couple. Groupons welcome with $5.00 extra per person.
Details below.

Fred Peterson came to Dry Creek Valley in 1983, working to find and develop world-class vineyard properties. It was an exciting time for Fred, being able to select ideal vineyard locations and then plant the appropriate grape variety and clone for each site. The vineyards Fred developed in Dry Creek Valley (Sonoma County), including on Bradford Mountain, began producing amazing fruit. The next step was a natural one;
Fred wanted to make wine from the fruits of his labor
(Sorry about the pun, it was too good to pass up).  

In 1987, all the pieces fell into place for Fred, and he launched Peterson Winery. For nearly twenty years, the winery was located in an old, red barn tucked away in the vineyards off of Lytton Springs Road. It was beautiful place to make wine, but the antique structure began to show its age. In late 2005, Fred seized an opportunity to move into a newer facility on Dry Creek Road, at Timber Crest Farms. This new, more convenient location offers more offices and space, plus a room for visitors to taste the wines.  

Over the years, Fred has befriended grape growers who share his goals and values; to grow grapes that reflect a sense of place. The Dry Creek Valley encompasses one of the greatest ranges of microclimates for such a small area in the world, making it possible to grow many grape varieties, with world-class quality. Peterson Winery now makes an average of 8000 cases annually, all in many small lots from the like-minded growers he now calls his friends.  


We are now featuring a "Wine of the Month" that we will have open for $2.00 pours all month long. Similar to the "try before you buy" program. The first wine will be the Joseph Carr
2015 Napa Cabernet.
Normally $31.99 - Now $26.99.
10% off on 6 or more bottles.

We will taste the following wines this Saturday

2016 Redwood Glen Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc - $25.99
Citrus infuses the entry with lemon, lime and just a trace of pomelo, while a delicious tropical fruit mix and traces of floral appear mid-palate to merge and linger with the bright flavors.
 
2017  Dry Creek Valley Rosé - $25.99  
The vivid wild berry, melon and white floral nose aptly express the luscious flavors that follow. An ideal balance of mouthwatering acidity and a creamy texture start and finish the wine. The palate fills with bright raspberry, dried strawberry and tart cherry, along with hints of watermelon and floral.
 
2012 Tollini Vineyard, Mendocino ZERO MANIPULATION - $26.99
This easy-quaffing blend has just enough kick to please a hearty red drinker and the smooth edges and delicious forward fruit to keep the mellow red drinkers happy, too. The nose offers a balance of rustic aromas and dark toned fruit, hinting at the wine’s structure. The smooth entry quickly reveals dark cherry, cranberry, plum and goji berries wrapped in a luscious layer of spice
 
2012 Bradford Mountain Estate Vineyard
Cabernet Sauvignon - $46.99
A smooth entry quickly reveals the luscious flavors of black currant, blackberry and dark cherry edged with mocha and chocolate. Spicy cedar and a mineral essence make their appearance mid-palate, lifting and brightening the flavors as they flow into a long finish.
 
2012 Dry Creek Valley ZINFANDEL TRADIZIONALE - $36.99
This Zin offers seductive aromatics of bright brambly berry with hints of dusty tannins and vanillin oak that entice that first sip. As soon as you taste the rich, juicy flavors, you’re hooked. A deliciously smooth entry bursts with perfectly vine-ripened wild blackberries mixed with dark cherry, plum and black raspberry.

Tasting is $12.00 per person or $20 per couple.

Very special Ridge tasting this Saturday

This Saturday, July 28th we will do a special tasting of Ridge Wines featuring Vic Garbo from Southern Glazer. This tasting will be $25.00 per person. Light hors dourvres.
Wines are listed below.
 Groupons OK with additional $15 per person

The history of Ridge Vineyards begins in 1885, when Osea Perrone, a doctor who became a prominent member of San Francisco's Italian community, bought 180 acres near the top of Monte Bello Ridge. He terraced the slopes and planted vineyards; using native limestone, he constructed the Monte Bello Winery, producing the first vintage under that name in 1892. This unique cellar, built into the mountainside on three levels, is Ridge's production facility. At 2600', it is surrounded by the "upper vineyard." In the 1940s, William Short, a theologian, bought the abandoned winery and vineyard just below the Perrone property; he replanted several parcels to cabernet sauvignon in the late 1940s. From these vines — now the "middle vineyard"— new owners Dave Bennion and his three partners, all Stanford Research Institute engineers, made a quarter-barrel of "estate" cabernet. That Monte Bello Cabernet was among California's finest wines of the era. Its quality and distinctive character, and the wines produced from these same vines in 1960 and '61, convinced the partners to re-bond the winery in time for the 1962 vintage. The first zinfandel was made in 1964, from a small nineteenth-century vineyard farther down the ridge. This was followed in 1966 by the first Geyserville zinfandel. The founding families reclaimed the Monte Bello terraces, increasing vineyard size from fifteen to forty-five acres. Working on weekends, they made wines of regional character and unprecedented intensity. By 1968, production had increased to just under three thousand cases per year, and in 1969, Paul Draper joined the partnership. A Stanford graduate in philosophy—recently returned from setting up a winery in Chile's coast range—he was a practical winemaker, Tasting press fractions Exceptional single-vineyard wines Since 1962. 17100 Monte Bello Road, Cupertino, CA 95014 www.ridgewine.com 650 Lytton Springs Road, Healdsburg, CA 95448 408.867.3233 not an enologist. His knowledge of fine wines and traditional methods complemented the straightforward "hands off" approach pioneered at Ridge. Under his guidance the old Perrone winery (acquired the previous year) was restored, the finest vineyard lands leased or purchased, the consistent quality and international reputation of the wines established. Cabernet and Zinfandel account for most of the production; Syrah, Grenache, Carignane, and Petite Sirah constitute a small percentage. Known primarily for its red wines, Ridge has also made limited amounts of chardonnay since 1962. Lytton Springs, in Sonoma County, became part of the Ridge estate in 1991. A quarter century's experience with this vineyard had convinced us that it was an exceptional piece of ground. Forty consecutive vintages of Geyserville attest to yet another stunning combination of location and varietals. Though born in the early sixties to the post-Prohibition world of modern California winemaking, Ridge relies on nature and tradition rather than technology. Our approach is straightforward: find intense, flavorful grapes; intrude upon the process only when necessary; draw the fruit's distinctive character and richness into the wine.

Hooray!!!!
