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 October
We’re Totally Latin with Spain Wines; Day of the Dead
After two weeks crisscrossing wine country in Spain with a group of 20 wine lovers from Carpe Vino, as well as hitting as many cultural sites as could be squeezed into two weeks (from Madrid to Bilbao to Barcelona), it’s time for me to get back to the real world. And I’m ready, because every time I hit the road, I come home energized with new ideas and new wines to introduce in the shop. In November we’ll be featuring Spain as the theme for our prix-fixe event, paired with some absolutely monster wines I encountered. I’m also hopeful that we’ll be able to organize our first winemaker dinner in three years. . .with Albert Costa Miralbell, winemaker and co-owner of Celler Vail Llach in Porrera, Spain. . .located two hours south of Barcelona in the Piriorat wine-growing region. He’ll be visiting Sacramento early next year, and he’s willing to bring his wines to Auburn. If we can pull this off, it’s gonna be killer, más o menos.
But next up on the prix-fixe front is an homage to “The Day of the Dead,” or in Spanish, Dia de Muertos. This Mexican holiday in early November brings family and friends together to honor the departed celebrating with music and food. The event runs from October 29 to November 3; cost is $49 per person plus tax and tip. Make your reservations now by calling 530-823-0320.
