Meet the Winemaker: Paulina & Alexandre Gendrier from Domaine Huards from 5 to 7pm- Domaine des Huards was founded by Pierre Gendrier in 1846. Since then 7 generations of the family have been stewards of Huards. Today, Domaine des Huards is managed organically and biodynamically and works solely with fruit coming from the estate vineyards. Their mission is to produce "wines that are natural and that generate a maximum amount of enjoyment." Cour-Cheverny is a lesser known appellation that makes outstanding wines so stop by.

The Central Coast Experience with Paul Lato Wines from 5 to 7pm- The Central Coast is blessed with diverse terroir that makes it optimal for a wide range of grape varieties. The wines from Paul Lato makes use of that diversity to its fullest potential. From Pinot and Chard to Rhône varieties and Sauv Blan, the wines of Paul Lato represent classic Central Coast style. Stop by the store and try some of their wines which are surely crowd pleasers.
Thursday February 27th
Sensational Wines from Serbia & Slovakia with Danch & Granger Selections from 5 to 7pm- When it comes to Eastern Europe, Eric Danch is our go-to guy. Most recently he showed us two wineries that really knocked our socks off: Bott Frigyes of Slovakia and Maurer of Serbia. Bott Frigyes is an ethnic Hungarian born in Slovakia that makes wines more in the Hungarian tradition. Along with his son Frici, Bott makes traditional wines of balance and finesse. Over in Serbia Oszkár Maurer maintaining wine traditions that have been in the family for four generations. His wines are 100% natural but also clean as a whistle and seriously delicious. This is a tasting that will surprise everyone.
Friday February 21st
Sicilian Beauties from Passopisciaro from 5 to 7pm- On Etna you can lose it all. No one knows that better than Andrea Franchetti who, despite the hulking hump of solidified lava that overlooks the vineyards, bought the Passopisciaro back in 2000. Hers are some of the most compelling wines coming from the new wave of winemakers who invested in the volcanic slopes in the 21st century. If you love Etna you need to be at this tasting.
