Virtual Tasting With Josh Klapper Of Santa Barbara's Timbre

    Sun, June 26, 2022 (4:00 PM - 5:30 PM)

Cost: $25

Sign Up And Order Sample Kit for $25 Here!

We’ve been fans of Josh Klapper’s Pinot Noir “Opening Act” for years now – there’s just not a better quality California Pinot Noir out there at anything like the price. But we’ve been a little remiss in exploring the rest of the wines from this boutique Santa Barbara winery and top vineyards up and down California’s Central Coast. So we’ve decided to fix that, and you’re invited to join us as we talk and taste with John from the winery on Sunday, June 26, at 4pm.

Josh started his wine career as a sommelier in LA and featuring great Pinot, Chardonnay and more from Santa Barbara pioneers Jim Clendenen (Au Bon Climat) and Bob Lindquist (Qupe). And after working with them, found himself pulled to make wine himself! He works with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Bordeaux and Rhone varietals from some of the Central Coast’s most exciting vineyards. And, as Vinous explained last year, "the Timbre wines are done with a light touch. More importantly, the wines convey the essence of place, which is so critical with vineyard designates."

You’ll have the chance to taste for yourself during our virtual tasting if you take home one of our Timbre Virtual Tasting kits featuring 3oz pours of our five featured wines:

  • Timbre Opening Act Chardonnay 2019 (Vinous 90 points)
  • Timbre Opening Act Pinot Noir 2019 (WE 92 points)
  • Timbre Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Lead Vocals 2018 (WE 95 points)
  • Timbre Grenache-Syrah-Mourvedre Grand Symphonic Melody 2019 (WE 93 points)
  • Timbre Bordeaux Blend The Classics 2019 (WE 92 points)

The sample pouches provide a generous pour of each of five wines for one person or a delightful tasting portion to be shared by two. Order your kits to sign up now and they’ll be ready for pick-up at the shop from 11am – 3:30pm on the day of the event, Sunday, June 26.

Then, at 4pm on Sunday the 26th, just click on the Zoom link we’ll send you in advance and get ready to join us, distributor Chris Campbell from Metro Selections and Josh Klapper for a delicious tour of the California’s Central Coast. If you’d like to join without the samples, we can do that as well – just email us and we’ll put you on the list. Either way, we hope you’ll join us!
