 Wine Tasting: Dashe Cellars

Special Guest Michael Dashe

 
Thursday, October 18   7-9pm
 
Seated Event- Pre-Paid Tickets Only    $15     Call 1-800-446-9463
 
 

Dashe Cellars is a family-owned artisan winery located in the heart of the Urban Wine Country in Oakland, CA.

Founded by the husband and wife winemaking team of Michael and Anne Dashe, Dashe Cellars crafted its first vintage of Dry Creek Zinfandel in 1996. Since that time, the Dashe’s have focused on producing exceptional, single-vineyard wines using a traditional, non-industrial approach to winemaking.

Early in their relationship, Mike and Anne dreamed of blending their passion for winemaking with their love of the San Francisco Bay Area. In a somewhat controversial decision at the time, they bypassed the bucolic scenes of lush vineyards for a warehouse in Jack London Square, then transformed it into a world-class facility. They simply believed that people shouldn’t have to travel to wine country to taste exceptional wines.

With that belief still top of mind, Mike and Anne are committed to creating wines that reflect the unique soil, climate, and regional characteristics of their vineyards. To attain these goals, Dashe Cellars uses traditional and “natural” winemaking techniques, including small-lot fermentation, the use of indigenous yeasts, and little-to-no fining or filtration.

 
Here’s the Line Up:
1.  Riesling
2.  Chenin Blanc
3.  Carignane Evangelho Vineyard
4.  Grenache
5.  Zinfandel, Mendocino 2016, Carboni Cuvee
6.  Zinfandel, Louvau Vineyard 2012

Wine Tasting:  Henriques & Henriques Madeira
Special Guest:  Jake Parrott

Saturday, October 20   7-9pm    Seated Event

$15 / Person – Reservations Required (800) 446-9463

Join us to experience some of the finest examples of Madeira, presented by Jake Parrott, a highly knowledgeable and engaging presenter, who happens to be the National Sales Director for wine & spirits importer Haus Alpenz.

Madeira, from the island of the same name Madeira, may be made from 6 different grapes creating wines that range from dry to sweet. To compound their already unique flavors, the wines are then oxidized to simulate their journey in barrels on ships to England and far ranging colonies. The oxidation allows development of aromatic complexity and intense flavor profiles. H&H are hallmarked by an honest, bright and elegant style.   

Tasting List:

  1. 3 Year Old Rainwater
  2. 5 Year Old Finest Dry
  3. 2001 Single Harvest Sercial
  4. 20 Year Old Terrantez
  5. 10 Year Old Verdelho
  6. 10 Year Old Boal

Special Event: The Bruery Sit-down Tasting with Founder Patrick Rue & Brewer Ethan Adams

Thursday, October 25th, 7-9pm

$15 / Person – Reservations Required (800) 446-9463

The Bruery is a boutique craft brewery located in Orange County, CA specializing in barrel aged and experimental ales.
Founded as a small, friend & family run business in 2008, The Bruery takes its unique moniker from founder Patrick Rue’s family surname.
Patrick picked up homebrewing as a hobby, later to become an obsession, as a distraction to the banality of law school.
Soon he was winning numerous awards for his beers and driving his wife, Rachel, mad with the messes that he would leave
on the kitchen stove. Upon finishing school, he took it upon himself to draw up a business plan rather than study for the California Bar exam –
a risky endeavor that shows through still today in the creative, genre-tilting beers that The Bruery prides itself on.
The Bruery is founded on the excitement that Patrick felt in those first years of homebrewing and we continue to strive
for that same passion in every aspect of our business today. We never stop challenging ourselves to develop distinctive & imaginative beers,
constantly pursuing improvement in all that we do. We brew dozens of original beers each year with our list of ingredients and inspirations
growing perpetually. Our collection of oak barrels has also become a primary element of our brewery. Nearly half of our beer is aged in
wine or spirit barrels bringing forth flavors reminiscent of the Belgian countryside or classic American distillers.
Ethan Adams, brewed for The Bruery for several years (also brewed for Hardywood) and has had a hand in most of our East Coast collaborations will host this event.

Ethan also now runs the DC Bruery store. We’ll feature a ridiculous assortment of 15 beers (TBA).
