Don’t forget about our pop-up food pairing event this Saturday, August 20th from 5 to 8pm!
When it’s hot I tend to drink white wine, but sometimes I get a hankering for red, and I’ve found that certain reds really work in the summertime. Big lush cabs don’t (they seem too ponderous in the heat), but fresh, lighter bodied, lower alcohol wines really do.
Lightly chilled, our 2014 Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara County exhibits a knock out aroma of fruits and pretty dried flowers. The flavors are fresh and earthy, and the wine finishes with just the right level of juicy tannins. This pinot is young but exhibits a deliciousness and drinkability that makes it easy to enjoy glass after glass.
Danny’s Everett’s small plate menu for our Pinot Noir draws from a broad range of influences. Perhaps you remember his name from when he took home gold and bronze medals in the Olympics and held the world record in track and field. Danny traveled the world for competitions, and had the pleasure of dining with Heads of State and other dignitaries, eating amazing international cuisine in over 20 countries.
Danny combined his first-hand experience with international cuisine with his love of cooking to create elevated soul food and savory multi-cultural dishes with his SoulFête culinary series. Check out SoulFête’s website to hear more about their story and cuisine.
We’re elated to have Anna & Aris jazz duo performing for this event. When we heard their cover of “Dream a Little Dream of Me,” we were captivated by Anna’s powerful and resonant voice, which is especially beautiful over Aris’ clean, warm guitar accompaniment. It’s an honor for us to have them drive up from Los Angeles to perform at our tasting room. Don’t miss it!
This event will be unique in that SoulFête will be staffed to take orders and payment for food right at your table, so you can relax with a glass of wine until you’re brought a plate of beautifully plated and boldly delicious cuisine. Settle down with the current vintage or library bottlings of our Santa Barbara County Pinot and treat yourself to an evening of perfectly paired flavors at our tasting room.
Come enjoy refreshing Pinot Noir, some exciting new cuisine and live music from Anna & Aris this Saturday, August 20th from 5 to 8pm! For the night’s wine bar offering we will be offering Pinots from multiple vintages and other selections to show you the diversity of our library.
