Evening with LEAH SERESIN direct from NEW ZEALAND!!!


Sometimes you must “CARPE DIEM” at Carpe Vino and Tuesday, September 18th at 6pm is one of those days.  We know it is late notice, but when one of the owners, Leah Seresin, (of arguably one of the best wineries in New Zealand) is stopping by and says “let’s get a tasting group together” then, well, let’s get a tasting group together!  Opportunities to taste these wines with Leah happen in cities like; New York, Hong Kong, Paris, San Francisco, but in Auburn, California???  Trust us on this, if you are looking for a truly unique tasting experience…GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!!!  $55/ticket {all-inclusive} Only 20 Tickets Available!

When we received the word, that Leah wanted to headline a “Family Winemaker Series” event in the wine mine, we time would be of the essence.  By way of a miracle, we have secured all SIX wines to be tasted ranging in pricing from $21-$75/bottle.  We even have purchased the last SIX CASES of the 2011 Seresin RESERVE Sauvignon Blanc.  Honestly, probably one of the best Sauvignon Blancs we have ever tasted in our 16 years here at CV.  Here is the full line-up of wines to be tasted Tuesday:

MOMO (by Seresin) Sauvingon Blanc 2016 – $21/bottle (88pts WA – 89pts WS)
Seresin “Estate” Sauvignon Blanc 2016 – $25/bottle (92pts WA – 88pts WS)
Seresin “Reserve” Sauvignon Blanc 2011 – $40/bottle (90pts WA – NR WS)
Seresin “Leah” Pinot Noir 2014 – $30/bottle (89+ WA – 87 WS)
Seresin “Rachel” Pinot Noir 2013 – $45/bottle (91+ WA – 87 WS)
Seresin “Raupo Creek” Pinot Noir 2013 – $75/bottle (93+ WA – 89WS)

All SIX of these wines are from the Marlborough region of New Zealand and farmed organically/biodynamically.  As Leah will attest, they put more back into the land then they take out!

Though the menu is not fully confirmed, Chef Alexander has shared certain items that you will most likely be seeing on Tuesday night!
