Last year, I attended a terrific tasting in Santa Rosa, in the same business park where two favorites, Carol Shelton and The NPA, reside; the Vinify Winery Collective Tasting and Sales Event.
Vinify is a custom crush and winemaking facility that allows folks the opportunity to make really amazing wines without having to build their own winery.
I wrote about last year’s event in advance, had friends buy tickets, met them, tasted wines, took notes, and couldn’t write a recap of the event.
I like to think I write nice recaps, paint word pictures, describe wines well, and include pictures I take; but I wasn’t feeling well, my sense of smell and taste were off, and to my great regret I had to refrain from writing a recap.
The great news for me, and for you, is that the Vinify Winery Collective Tasting and Sales Event is on again this year, on Saturday, June 11, 2011 from 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM at Vinify Wine at 3358 Coffey Lane, Ste D in Santa Rosa, CA 95403.
Participating wineries include, in reverse alphabetical order, Wren Hop Vineyards and Winery, Westerhold Family Vineyard, Vaughn Duffy Wines, Sojourn Cellars, Olsen Ogden Wines, Jemrose Vineyard, Lattanzio Winery, Gracianna Winery, Frostwatch Vineyard and Winery, Desmond Wines, Calluna Vineyard, Bjornstad Cellars, Barbed Oak Vineyards, Baker Lane, Audelssa Estate Winery, and Argot Wines.
Tickets are just $25 online, register now, show up on June 11th, get a great Riedel Burgundy glass to taste with and keep, taste over 40 wines, enjoy tasty treats and cheeses, cross your raffle prize winning fingers, join a wine club or 12, and have a great time.
I will be coming down from Ukiah to Santa Rosa to attend this year’s Vinify Tasting Event, I hope to see you there.
