Fall Release Celebration

September 3, 2011

Location: Monte Bello

Join us as we celebrate the arrival of harvest and the release of our newest fall wines! Be among the very first to taste new vintages of both the Monte Bello Cabernet and Chardonnay, plus our fall trio of single-vineyard zinfandels (including the new Lytton Springs), and a few extra treats from the vaults! Enjoy your wines while sampling genuine, farmer’s market authentic, wood-fired pizzas! The fantastically passionate and talented folks at Pizza Politana will be driving their wood-fired pizza oven right up our mountain to personally serve you their widely-heralded, locally-sourced offerings. (Sunset Magazine writes, “The Temescal Farmer’s Market is ground-zero for gourmands, and Chez Panisse alum Joel Baecker bakes its best new grub — beautifully blistered pizzas — in his portable wood-burning oven.”) In-between stints of carefully monitoring the vineyards, members of our winemaking team will be on-hand to taste wine with you, answer your questions about vintages, and yes, sample the pizzas! The event runs from 11am-5pm, Saturday, September 3rd, and you are welcome any time, though we do recommend an early arrival, as we expect a fully sold-out event! Join us the following weekend at Lytton Springs as the culinary themes and library wine features will be unique at each event.
