Municipal Winemakers - The Future of Santa Barbara
We are super-stoked to announce that the Bright White and the Bright Red wines have been selected to be a part of the Santa Barbara Wine Cask Futures Program.
In the words of the Wine Cask, the futures is "a unique opportunity to sample and purchase more than one hundred outstanding wines from Santa Barbara County wineries before they are released to the public. 2008 will be our 19th year of promoting and showcasing the wines of Santa Barbara County through the futures program. We hope for this year to be the best one yet!"
It is a pretty massive honor to be selected for this event as a totally new winery out of the gates!! We will be pouring at the two tasting dates.
A catalogue of all of the featured wineries and their futures selections will be available on-line March 1. You can sign up for the Wine Cask e-newsletter to receive a downloadable copy, or just stay tuned here. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the new children's program at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara.
You can buy tickets to the March 29th tasting here
or buy tickets to the April 12th tasting here
. It costs $75 to come, but that gets you a chance to taste all the wines, some lively conversation with winemakers, and the use of Riedel glasses for tasting.
Don't forget... a "lavish" (their word) hors d’oeuvres buffet prepared by our new Chef John Pettitt.
Some of the money goes to the new children's program at Cottage hospital.
If you are coming to either tasting, make sure to stop by and say g'day!
