Yesterday, Santa Pruett drove his four-wheeled sleigh to Carpe Vino’s warehouse and dropped off 32 cases for today’s “NEW RELEASE” Tasting at Carpe Vino. Only problem was Santa Pruett forgot one very important case of wine back at Santa’s winery. Instead of rushing back & forth yesterday, Santa Pruett decided he would pop on down for the tasting today and enjoy some time with the Carpe Vino Wine Club Members. So…just like Santa…we don’t have an exact time but he will be here, pen in hand to sign bottles if you so choose! If this is all news to you…keep reading below. Regardless, we hope to see you at CV today from 1-4pm!

WELL…This is one of those days when its not just good to be a Carpe Vino Wine Club Member…ITS FRICKIN FANTASTIC! Scott Pruett, what more can you say about the man? Either he’s winning any race involving a steering wheel and gas pedal or he’s receiving unbelievable scores for the small production wines he makes right here in Placer County! Over the past month, Wine Spectator INsider has been releasing a score a week for Pruett Vineyard wines. So far, Pruett has received 93 Points, 94 Points and 95 Points for three of his wine and that doesn’t even include his crown jewel the CHAMPIONSHIP CUVEE! These are amazing scores especially for the price of these wines! We received one of the only allocations outside of the winery mailing list and we are planning on tasting and selling it all this Saturday from 1-4pm! SO…wine club members…come down and taste 3 of the 4 (sorry…Champ Cuvee is too limited to pour) Pruett wines and stock up your cellar and/or last minute Christmas gifts. If you have any questions…please feel free to email or call me at your earliest convenience. These wines won’t be available for purchase online until AFTER the tasting on Saturday…once they are gone…they’re gone!
