What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

Spanish & Portuguese Wine News: Special Cune & Contino Rioja Tasting Tuesday March 12th

By: Joe Manekin | Spanish & Portuguese Wine Buyer

Greetings all,

 Let's get back onboard with a few Rioja events, one in our Redwood City store and another put on by our friends at Vibrant Rioja, up in SF. Mark your calendar for these dates:

Contino & Cune Tasting Tuesday March 12th (5-6:30pm, REDWOOD CITY, $5) - Join us in welcoming Contino winemaker Jesús Madrazo as we taste a few current releases, as well as go into the vaults for some library releases (which we will be offering on a pre-sale basis) of Contino and Cune. Jesús is one of the most knowledgeable winemakers in Rioja and it is a very educational experience to taste with him. My only regret is that I will not be here to taste these classics (don't feel too bad for me though - I'll be in Rioja....)  Let us know you're coming & rsvp here.

Saturday March 23rd (6:30-8:30pm) - From Vibrant Rioja: "Join Vibrant Rioja's Nina Sventitsky at Elite Audio SF for an evening of Rioja wines and great music. Listen to your favorite vinyl, cd's, iTunes on the best hifi systems in San Francisco. Charcuterie and cheeses by Boccalone." event link
