At the start of every new year, we set goals to do things differently. And this Saturday's tasting is definitely a different look for us.
After a holiday season featuring the artisan wines of the amazing producers in the Weygandt import portfolio, we're kicking off our 2019 tasting calendar with a look at the wines of a few stateside winemakers we love—and offering big discounts to boot!
The wineries we'll feature this Saturday—Washington state's Syncline, Napa's Volker Eisele, and the Russian River Valley's Pont Neuf—all take an old-world approach to their craft, and their wines remind us of what makes our portfolio producers so special.
For example, Syncline Winery is a family estate dedicated to biodynamic practices—much like our own Domaine Gauby from France's Roussillon region or Domaine Les Aphillanthes in the southern Rhône.
Likewise, the Volker Eisele Family Estate in Napa's Chiles Valley District have used organic farming practices since 1974 to enrich the vineyard soils, and the winery's roots can be traced back to the 1870s—a legacy that would make many of our European producers jealous.
Finally, Pont Neuf in the Russian River Valley prides itself on serving as a "New Bridge to the Old World." The estate's winemakers trained in Burgundy, and intentionally limit its production to those sites that, like the Grand Cru vineyards of Burgundy, express a sense of place and varietal precision.
This Saturday, we'll pour 6 wines—including 3 90+-pointers—from these 3 estates, at discounts of up to 35%. Click here for more information, including tasting notes and pricing.
