Clos LaChance: The Light Flight. Come find out why Food & Wine Magazine named Clos LaChance one of the ten U.S. 'wineries to watch'. If you haven't discovered it yet, you'll be pleased to know that the winery is located on a golf resort just 20 miles south of San Jose. Be among the first to try the winery's new Spring releases. Clos LaChance will be pouring its award-winning Viognier as well as an off-beat but spectacular dry rosé made of Grenache and Syrah.
LaRochelle: The Sideways Shoot-Out. Artisan Winemaking. Traditional hand-crafting. Innovative techniques. Limited production. With this artistic pedigree and 150 years of family winemaking in the heart of Silicon Valley, the wines of La Rochelle are predestined for greatness...We'll address the question on the tip of everyone's tongue -- Merlot or Pinot? Better yet, why decide when you can have both! LaRochelle has chosen its two favorite varietals to allow you to be the judge.
Koves Newlan: The Bold & The Beautiful. Koves-Newlan Vineyards & Winery is a small family owned winery dedicated to producing premium-quality, handcrafted, world-class, Napa Valley wines. A boutique winery of fewer than 10,000 cases, the Koves Newlan winery has a strong history in Napa Valley and continues to win awards for its incredible red wines. For the final flight of the evening, Koves Newlan will pour two of the reds that put them on the map: Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Big reds like these are best saved for the end with a little chocolate!
