The Social Calendar
JOIN US AT THE TABLE WHERE WE DINE WITH STELLAR WINE MAKERS AND DRINK A LOT OF THEIR WINE.
January 26: Ryme Winery
A love affair in wine-making and life, join husband and wife team Ryan and Megan Glaab to help us kick off our first producer dinner in the new Somm's Table. Known for sourcing rare and unusual grapes, often of Italian varieties, they use no cultured yeast, no temperature controls, and no enzymes or adulterants in their search for beautifully "fresh" idiosyncratic - and food friendly- characteristics. Ryme's aims is to produce wines you will love to drink. Often.
February 9: Small Vines Winery
Jancis Robinson is not the only one saying "Small Vines Winery are the ones to watch." Yet another dynamic husband and wife team, Paul and Kathryn Sloan are true traditionalists in approaching their goal of producing Grand Cru in California, all all estate grown and 100% organic. Fastidious farming, small yields, concentrated flavors and beautifully balanced. Come and meet these pioneering vignerons.
March 16: Alysian Wines
Alysian is known for sourcing off the beaten path grapes from veteran growers and little know vineyards in Sonoma and Mendocino County to as far north as Willamette Valley, Wa, . But they always handcraft their "nuanced libations" right here in Healdsburg. Join winemaker Woody Hamrecht, whose talents now include production of vermouth, at The Somm's table. And don't forget to ask for a taste of their kosher wine, to our knowledge, the first in Sonoma County.
April 13: Leo Steen
That winemaker Leo Hansen has one of the best classically trained palates in the business is well known; the son of a chef and hotelier, this native Dane literally grew up in the food and wine business. Then he traveled the world, studying and winemaking, until luckily (for us) landing at Stulhmuller, where he is still making their award winning wines. Leo Steen is his own label, and his style here reflects a true understanding of the wine/food paradigm. A good friend of Barndiva since we opened, we adore Leo and the wines he makes and look forward to a special evening with this elegant and deeply talented man.
May 4th: brick and mortar
Make no mistake: We love this dynamic duo - brick and mortar's brilliant winemaker Matt Iaconis and his equally talented wife, our wonderful (and world class) Sommelier, Alexis. Talent abounds in this family, but above all else it's the focus and passion they bring to everything they take on that continually amazes us. Matt's speciality is working with high elevation mountain vineyards in Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino, making delightful old world style Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. He will bring all of them. Get ready for a very very special evening.
