Starting April 4th we will be open daily from 12-7pm.
Please stop by and see us or meet Brizey & Patrick who have joined the tasting room team.
In May there will a special Grand Opening Week!
Just a little bit more red tape and things like that but we expect to have our soft opening any week now.
Stay tuned for details!
For the 2018 re-launch and tasting room opening we have returned to Griva Vineyard to bottle a fresh & exciting Sauvignon Blanc from Arroyo Seco. Safe to say across the board Sauv Blanc is Kori's personal favorite grape varietal when reaching for a bottle to both entertain guests or to enjoy in the backyard. The nose opens with notes of lychee, green apple, light tropical fruit aromas & lemongrass. On the palate you should find grapefruit, jasmine, citrus peel & wet stone.
Available for $24/bottle
The 2018 harvest was our first endevaour picking for and producing a rosé wine. The grapes are exclusively Pinot Noir sourced from our Highlands Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands. So far we've been able to enjoy it on its own at the beach or with a salmon salad for lunch showing that the notes of rose petal, Rainer cherry, wet gravel, crab apple & stone fruit let it be enjoyed in a mix of places.
Available for $24/bottle.
Our 2018 Sauvinon Blanc & Rosé and 2017 Syrah got bottled this week. Went through to make some tasting notes with a few hightlights being: guava, pepper, lychee, rose petal, citrus zest & bramble fruit. Wines available for sale now and will be featured in the tasting room when we open shortly.
Things are coming along nicely. Have a few more things to do to get up & running but should just be a few more weeks. Looking forward to welcoming you to the tasting room.
Hope 2018 was wonderful & looking forward to welcoming you to our tasting room in 2019 in addition to an expanded collection of wines including a sparkling blanc de blancs, rosé, Syrah & of course, Pinot Noir.
The Court of the Fountains
We've found the location and are excited to be opening in The Court of the Fountains between Lula's Chocolates & Bixby Barber...just across from the patio of Anton & Michel.
Still working on some updates to the space and for some new wines to be ready but we anticipate opening with limited days/hours around the end of February or early March.
A few weeks ago tasting the 2018 blanc de blancs sparkling wine, rosé (from Pinot Noir), Pinot Noir & 2017 Syrah. The Syrah & rosé will be available (along with a Sauvignon Blanc) as we open the Carmel tasting room early next year.
Use a nice dry white wine like Sauvigon Blanc or Chardonnay to add taste & flavor to a great dish with shallots, mustard and braised chicken.
