Vinavanti+MIHO Farm-to-Wine Party
Five courses of delicious farm-to-table food paired specifically to go with our wine selections (and a little raw juice). Unlike a traditional, stuffy, sit-down wine dinner, we’ve decided to go with a fun and casual, early afternoon, cocktail-party style event (but with wine instead of cocktails of course!). The party is on Saturday, December 7th, from Noon until 3pm.
Food is by A MIHO Experience (www.amihoexperience.com) – the creative and delicious force behind the MIHO Gastrotruck – minus the truck! All wines are naturally made from locally-sourced grapes, with no adding sulfites, native fermentations, unfiltered and unfined. All pours are 3 ounce.
Here’s the menu: Read the rest of this entry »

“DS9″ Mourvedre Release Oct 31, Nov 1-2 – 10% Off Signed Bottles
Halloween marks the general release of our 2012 “DS9″ Mourvedre. There’s quite a story behind this wine… We’ll save the story of the grapes’ journey and how the wine got its name for the tasting room (better with a glass of wine in your hand). The story of how the grapes were made into wine was through whole-cluster carbonic maceration. We took the entire grape clusters, put them in a tank, sealed it with an airlock, and left it… for three weeks! When we opened up the tank, the aroma was wild and intensely varietal Mourvedre – smoked ham, thyme, figs, and as Bryan from WineSellar put it, an aroma like ”a freshly put out camp fire”. We’re in love! Come by this Thursday, Friday or Saturday for 10% off signed bottles of DS9.
