Weekend Tasting: Island Getaway

Memorial Day Weekend is the official start to summer and vacation season.  At Vinoteca we are dreaming of the Islands and are taking you on a wine adventure.  Tough terrain and hot winds make islands a complicated place to plant vines, but these cultures have made it work.  Our tasting will explore from some lesser known wine-making islands including the Azores, Crete and the Canary Island.  We will start with Domaine Douloufakis 'Vidiano' Dafnios, move to the Azores' Wine Company's Rose Volcanico, and finishing with a stunning red Vinos Atlanticos 'Benje'.

Weekend Tasting: Grenache World Tour

Grenache.... let me count the ways we love you!  Vinoteca is here to guide you on the magic that happens when one of our favorite varietals comes together with friends and blends.  A testy grape to grow, Garnacha can be medium bodied, bright, dusty and juicy, but often its used to accentuate other grapes.  Our tasting will start in France, who has the largest plantings of Grenache with Le Selve 'Maduelonne Rose, move to Spain's Cara Nord Negre and finish in California with Halter Ranch 'Cotes de Paso.'
