Wine Club Tasting Notes Online. . . Exclusively
Welcome to Carpe Vino’s Wine Club Tasting Notes Online, where each month you’ll find information about all of our current selections. After wines have been billed and are ready to be picked up or shipped, Wine Club members will receive an email notification. Simply select the club in which you are enrolled below. You can view the tasting notes online, download a PDF and view notes for other clubs. The best part is all notes are archived, so if you cellar your wines, you can come back and locate any tasting notes.
Wine pricing shown with the notes is full retail; wine club pricing is shown on your receipt when you pick up your wine. We hope you find this process helpful and easy to use. And for your privacy, your membership information will be kept confidential. Carpe Vino does not share our information with any outside companies or other organizations.
Wine Club Tasting Notes for August
We’re Hot to Trot with August Selections
This headline is a shameful play on words because two of our wine selections this month are produced at wineries where horses are as important as grape growing. Owners at Tamber Bey and Bello Family Wines have equestrian roots: one in 50 and 100-mile endurance races (think our own Tevis Cup, 100 miles from Squaw Valley to Auburn); the other in thoroughbred racing. The compelling drive to win shared by both owner families is reflected in the wines they produce.
We’re also very pleased to introduce Jay Wilderotter’s first Carpe Vino Wine Club selection, his 2010 Wilderotter Mourvedre, a wine that is subtle but packs memorable fruit flavors. Jay’s estate is within a short distance of the Sand Fire that burned six square miles, 20 homes and forced the evacuation of 1,200 people. As if winemakers don’t have enough to worry about—weather, vine diseases, bugs, contaminants in the winery—now they can add raging fires to the list.
And look for two wines from Andrew Jones. . .really, really nice.
