This Saturday and the next between 1pm & 4pm Carpe Vino will be featuring the magnificent wines from Truchard Vineyards. Truchard is a small, family-owned winery that is one of the true pioneers of grape growing in the Carneros region of Napa Valley. The wines are hand-crafted using traditional wine making techniques, and exemplify the high quality fruit of this unique estate. They are truly “wines with a sense of place.” If you want to visit Truchard these days, you’ll need an appointment and you’ll need to pony up a $30 per person tasting fee. However, CV Wine Clubbers get to sample these delicious wines for FREE! Plus, we have some fantastic discounts to take advantage of so come on down and stock up on some excellent VINO! (please remember two-person maximum per wine club membership, no guests)
