South Africans Invade California

5.30 PM - 7.30 PM

Fog Monster (2).JPG

Fog Monster is a project from Andrea and Chris Mullineux of Mullineux Family Wines in South Africa. We'll be tasting their Chenin Blanc and Grenache from Amador County. Both are delicious, well-made and reflect the nature of the soils and the climate in the Sierra Foothills. Esoteric? Perhaps, but that doesn't mean they can't be enjoyed by all.

Fog Monster Chenin Blanc 2012: $52.99
Fog Monster Grenache 2012: $52.99

Chase Pours Guilty Pleasures

5.00 PM - 7.30 PM

Tonight we're planning to pour all the kooky crazy stuff that logic says we shouldn't buy. But like Miles from Risky Business: Sometimes you just have to say, 'What the f&$k.' Chase from Indie Wines will serve as our enabler and will be here pouring fun things from Arndorfer in Germany and Pithon-Paille in France.

Haus Alpenz Goodies

5.30 PM - 7.30 PM

David of Haus Alpenz is coming to give everyone a special treat on Friday. He'll be here from 5:30 to 7:30 to show off his cocktail chops and pour fun things such as Cardamaro, an amaro from the cardoon root, a fun and refreshing pine liqueur, and some other home-bar essentials. He can really help you step up your cocktail game, so do not miss this tasting.
