Patron Tequila Tasting
April 30th
7:00 - 9:00pm

The entire process of making Patr�n Tequila takes place at the spectacular Hacienda del Patr�n, nestled in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico.

Agave must mature for 6 or 7 years before its sugar contents peak, making it ripe for harvest for tequila. Tequila is made of only the sweet heart of the agave, called the pi�a. The pi�a is harvested by skilled workers called "jimadors." Expertise in harvesting is passed down from father to son. The sharp, long-handled tool used by the jimador to harvest is called a "coa." The bitter sprouts are removed by hand to reveal the sweet pi�a of the agave plant. Patr�n's master distiller, Francisco Alcaraz, uses his skills of sight, touch and taste along with the latest technology to select the perfect agave. Only the agave with the right balance of sugar and acid are selected.

An Evening in Italy
Franco Serra Wines
with Tony Marchetti

Wednesday, April 24th

7:00pm to 9:00pm

The Sperone family has been making affordable, premium wines for four generations. In 1920, Antonio Sperone opened a small wine shop in Torino where he sold bulk wine directly to consumers. Unsatisfied with the quality and price of the local wine, Antonio started his own winery in Puglia where land was inexpensive and produced good wine. He built a bottling facility in Torino and was soon able to offer his customers quality wines at prices everyone could afford. Sadly, it was destroyed when the city was bombed in WWII. The winery in Puglia survived the war and enabled Antonio's grandson Giacomo to open a new facility near Milan where he produced vermouth, sparkling wines, spirits and fine wines. With the help of his sons Paolo and Antonio, the company grew quickly and achieved distribution throughout Italy and expanded into foreign markets. In 1965, the family purchased 75 acres of prime vineyards in Piedmont and built a new winery in Monferrato. Even as the prices fetched for wines from this increasingly fashionable region continue to climb, the Sperone family proudly focuses on value. The Franco Serra, Pitule and d'Altieri lines provide everyone with the opportunity to drink thoughtfully crafted, distinctive wines from Italy's most renowned regions.

 Last Month's Winner was: 

2008 Raymond Vineyards "Generations" Cabernet Sauvignon 

"So rich and ripe in fruit, you almost don't notice that it's also a complicated and layered wine in structure. Blackberry marmalade, cassis and cocoa flavors are balanced despite hefty alcohol. An extraordinarily delicious wine, but it's meant to be enjoyed in its youth."

Saturday Night Wine Tasting

A Stroll through Paso Robles
Saturday
April 27th
at 7:00 to 9:00pm


Halfway between the two main California metropolises of Los Angeles and San Francisco is Paso Robles Wine Country. Located along California's famed Central Coast, the Paso Robles winegrape growing region's climate is perfect for the production of award-winning premium wines. A long growing season of warm days and cool evenings give rise to vibrantly ripened fruit with dynamic flavor profiles that translate beautifully in your glass of Paso Robles wine.

 

 

Traversing the landscape you will find 26,000 vineyard acres, producing more than 40 winegrape varieties - from Spanish to Italian, Bordeaux to Rh�ne, including the area's heritage variety Zinfandel. The styles of wine are diverse in this very distinct region.

 

Along your journey through Paso Robles Wine Country, take time to stroll the historic downtown to shop and dine. Boutique stores, wine country cuisine, and tasting rooms fill the blocks surrounding Paso Robles' Downtown City Park. A scene right out of a Norman Rockwell painting, Paso Robles' downtown completes the picture of Paso Robles Wine Country.

 

Join us for a tasting of this exquisite wine country.  RSVP via reply to this email or by calling the store at 404.523.2300.
