Napa Valley Terroir Class & Tasting Featuring Matthiasson & Smith-Madrone - January 27, 2015
We are thrilled to welcome Jill Matthiasson of Matthiasson wines and Stu Smith of Smith-Madrone wines for a very special night of drinking (and learning) on Tuesday, January 27! These two make some of the most compelling wines in California right now--not to mention, they're some of our favorite people in the whole wine industry.
Jill and Stu will first lead a class on their respective (and very different!) Napa Valley terroirs. This will be an intimate class for 12 students held at our communal table, featuring two wines from each winemaker. Tickets can be purchased here! This event is part of the Oakland Wine Festival year-long wine tasting and classes kick-off soirées, and a portion of the proceeds from the class will benefit the OWF, coming to our fine city this fine summer.
After the class, they'll each pour two of their wines at a public tasting from 7:30-9:30pm ($25 to taste all four wines; no reservation/tickets necessary; just drop in!).
We are honored to have these special guests in our shop and would love for you to come meet them, drink and learn! We hope to see you then.
