Don’t Miss Saracina Vineyard’s Old Soul Red Blending Party!

 

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a winemaker? If you really stop and think about it, there has to be so much involved with getting that one small bottle to your dinner table each night. Can you imagine what it’s like to produce millions of those bottles? Well now you can! On your next visit to the Mendocino Coast, why not participate in Saracina Vineyard’s Old Soul Red Blending Party?

 

Don’t Miss Saracina Vineyard’s Old Soul Red Blending Party!

Taking place at the Saracina barn on March 22nd from 10:30am-1:30pm, you’re invited to tap into your inner winemaker by joining Winemaker, Alex MacGregor at the first annual Old Soul Red Blending Party. So what exactly is this event all about? Well simply put, you will be learning the ins and outs of making one of Saracina’s most praised wines.

 

Upon your arrival, Alex will take you over to the barn where you will learn all about the art and science that goes into blending the famous Atrea Old Soul Red Wine. You’ll even get the opportunity to test your palate by using different varietals to experiment and create your own blend. Sounds like fun, right? Well that’s not all.

 

Once you’ve gotten past the learning aspect of the day and have been dubbed an “expert,” now the time you can start to relax and really enjoy yourself! Take a load off and enjoy some of Saracina’s best wines and a family-style lunch of wood-fired pizzas and gourmet sides, which will be prepared by farm-to-table Chef, Olan Cox.

 

Sounds amazing, we know! So don’t waste any more time; space is very limited for this incredible event, so make sure that you RSVP as soon as possible! The cost for attending this event is $55 for Saracina Wine Club Members, and $65 for guests, but trust us when we tell you that it is worth it!

Here in Mendocino County, we have a lot to be thankful for – and that includes fresh, succulent crab, rich wines and smooth brews. So in honor of all the great things that come along with living right on the California coast, come on out this way to celebrate the 15th Annual FUNdraiser for Community Health Care: Crab, Wine & Beer Days 2014!

From hundreds of pounds of perfectly seasoned, fresh Dungeness crab and tossed salad, to Café Beaujolais bread for dipping, tons of dessert and locally roasted Thanksgiving Coffee, you’ll be sure to walk away more than satisfied! Just don’t forget to stop by the Crabby Bar for some North Coast Brewing Company beer and Mendocino Country wine!
