You don’t have to be a wine savant to salivate over what the Moffats are bringing to your table in November. Across the board, we’re serving up mostly limited production selections, though no matter how many cases were produced, it’s “all good”.
I’m particularly pleased about a very special pinot from Albatross Ridge, a truly boutique winery in Carmel producing all-estate wines. We purchased 25 cases, one of the biggest orders ever for the winery, and I picked it up at the winemakers home in Pacific Grove. . .he had it stacked in his living room! Now that’s what I call winery-direct.
Save these essential dates: We’re heading smack into the sweet part of the holiday season. As a warm up, our last prix-fixe of the year runs next week, November 18 to 23. The theme is “Fall in New England,” and Chef Alexander’s menu will transport you to Boston and beyond.
After that, plan to test drive the wines you may be serving for your Thanksgiving and holiday parties at our annual Holiday Tasting on Tuesday, December 2 from 6 to 8 p.m. when we’ll have 50 wines open for your approval. As a special treat, Scott and Judy Pruett will join us to pour their new releases. Two people per Wine Club membership; no non-member friends, please.
Then on Sunday, December 7 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Blue Goose Events Center in Loomis, we’ll be hosting our annual Wine Club Holiday Party. We’ll be opening wonder juice, and Chef Alexander will strut his stuff, so please plan on joining us. If you do, the only price of admission is canned goods for our annual food drive. Again, members only, no exceptions (sorry).
