Red Wines from California

Wednesday, February 5th

Trapp Family Lodge Wine Cellar


“If California is not at present the favourite grape-growing

country of the world, it is certainly destined to attain that rank,

and also to become one of the most extensive          .”


                                                Ben Truman, New York Times, 1868


The state and their wines have come a long way since then, if not fulfilling Truman’s prediction to the letter then certainly doing so in spirit.


California encouraged the broad-spread popularity of wine throughout the U.S.A.


Latitude is less important in California than what lies between a given vineyard and the Pacific Ocean, these varied geographical features go a long way to explaining the varied and wonderful microclimates vineyards in California enjoy.


Price is $20.  Please call or see the front desk to place reservations.  802 253-5742.  Doors open @ 4:00.  I suggest you arrive no later than 5:00 to avoid feeling rushed.  People come and go during the tasting which is an informal walk around format. We end at 6:00
