When we announced the date of the next Wine Club Mixer in last week’s newsletter, we proved once again that assuming something is correct doesn’t make it so. Please pull up your calendar and note this correction: All Wine Club members are invited to join us FEBRUARY 25th from 6 to 8 p.m. to taste a selection of new releases from Santa Lucia Highlands-based Luli wines.
Owned by the Pisoni family, this is one of our favorite producers in all of California, and we’ll sample the 2011 vintages of Luli Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé and Syrah. Although they have already been released and are in limited supply, we’ll also taste the 2011 Luli Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
If you know pinot, then you know the Pisonis—Gary (patriarch), Mark (viticulturist) and Jeff (winemaker)—produce some of the finest juice in the Golden State. The Pisoni label is legendary; the Lucia brand is acknowledged for high quality; and the Luli line represents incredible price/value.
Young Jeff will be joining us for the evening. He’ll be pouring and answering your questions from 6 to 8 p.m. Our Jay Johnstone, personal wine consultant, will be pouring a selection of his picks. We’ll be offering special pricing for all wines on the list, and the cost is just $10 per person. Participation is limited to 75 people, so call 530-823-0320 to make your reservations.
Sorry about getting the date wrong; we’re a long way from achieving six sigma.
