Like Chalone Vineyard in October, Nalle Winery has been on my winery "wish list" for a long time.  Like most small wineries, they don't have the personnel to go hither and yon to sell their wares.  After all, Nalle only makes about a 1,000 cases of wine, total.  Being in the heart of Dry Creek, of course they make Zinfandel, but unlike most of their neighbors it is under 14% ABV.  This makes for a more elegant, and more food friendly wine.  Jules Kragen, with whom I attended Baldwin Hills Elementary school over 50 years ago, will be the speaker.

Martino Ovieto of Buon Appetito has re-tooled some menu items to optimize the pairings with each wines' individual flavors.
