Please join us Saturday, November 11 from 12 to 4pm to sample several gold standard wines from Orin Swift, Louis Martini and Max Ferd. Richter.

Made famous by the zinfandel-based cult classic The Prisoner, Dave Phinney of Orin Swift has been creating some of the most desirable yet affordable wines for over twenty years. Though most famous for his California projects, he has also had great success with his Locations project which he sources and crafts his masterpieces from nearly every major wine producing region in the world. We wish we could have more of them to pour, but as they are in such high demand we will only be able to let you experience two wines from this highly decorated winemaker.

One can’t speak of award-winning California wines without mentioning those of third-generation winemaker, Michael Martini, of Louis Martini Winery. With nearly 100 years of experience, Louis Martini has been receiving mind-blowing reviews over the last several years including their 95+ Point Parker rated Monte Rosso 2013 Cab.

If rich and powerful California reds are not your cup of tea, we will also be featuring the beautifully balanced Rieslings of Max Ferd. Richter. Richter was founded in 1640 and has been family owned ever since. The passion and dedication to quality of ninth generation Dr. Dirk Max Ferd. Richter and tenth generation Constantin is absolutely incredible. Most people think all Rieslings are the alike- very sweet, sugary, cloying and a little syrupy without much depth. The Richter family crafts the most elegant terroir driven wines from the Mosel at some of the best prices we have seen. From their Estate to their single vineyards, these wines show beautiful minerality and wonderful acidity that leave your palate begging for more.
