It’s always fun when we get to host an intimate, curated tasting of our wines. And seeing as just recently we’ve started pouring our 25th release of Bien Nacido Chardonnay and our 20th Bien Nacido Syrah, now seems like an apropos time to look back at our decades-long relationship with this fantastic gem of a vineyard and celebrate it with a one-time vertical lineup of wines.
The focus of this tasting will be on the three core varietals we’ve farmed at Bien Nacido over the years: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah. We’ll show three handpicked vintages of each, making for a fascinating lineup of nine wines. In each case, we’ve been farming the same rows in the same blocks for over twenty years. The vines have aged in that time and our aesthetic has evolved too, so this will be a one-time opportunity to taste multiple expressions from what many would consider a Grand Cru vineyard within California.
We’ll be hosting this at our tasting room in downtown Ojai on Saturday, January 27th from 5 to 7pm (note that we will close an hour early for regular tastings that day). This will be a small, limited participation event of up to 45 people only, so be sure to act quickly and click below to reserve your spot. Tickets are $40 a person and as always wine club members receive 15% off (must be logged in)!
The evening will be of a casual format: anyone with a reservation can show up any time between 5pm and 6:30pm to commence the tasting, and while food is not provided we (as always) welcome you to bring anything you’d like…We look forward to sharing this experience with you!
