Things are hectic around the friendly confines of Carpe Vino as the entire staff is working crunch time to prepare for the Wine Club Holiday Party this weekend, which will in all likelihood be over by the time you read these notes. We’re confirmed with more than 400 people attending the event on December 9 at the Blue Goose Event Center in Loomis. We were compelled to move the party out of town when there was no place large enough in Auburn to accommodate our group. We’re lucky, though, because with total membership now topping 700, our crowd could have been as large as 1,400.
This month’s Wine Club selections truly run the gamut from locally produced Pruett Vineyard’s 2009 Reserve Syrah (91 points, Wine Spectator) to a very tasty little Tempranillo from Spain that will knock you socks off for a pittance. Please enjoy these wines with your friends and family, and we’ll look forward to greeting you when you visit next.
Happy Holidays from Gary, Drew, Eric, Ada and the entire Carpe Vino crew!
