Mendocino: February 9 & 10, 2013

Some events are designed to have a very broad appeal, others, like the International Alsace Varietals festival are more focused and dive deep into their subject matter. When you're diving deep it's a good idea to have some very qualified instructors to show you the way, and this weekend, exploring the traits and characteristics of wines such as Pinot gris, Gewürztraminer, and Riesling, have some of the best.

Consider being tutored in wine pairing by Evan Goldstein and dining on the cuisine of Joyce Goldstein and John Ash while enjoying wines from acclaimed producers such as Anne Amie, Navarro and Stony Hill. And for those intent on digging deeper, check out the seminars such as 30 years of Riesling - a retrospective tasting and discussion with Allan Green of Greenwood Ridge in Anderson Valley or Botrytis in the Vineyard presented by Doug Gubler, Professor of Plant Pathology, UC Davis. There really is something for everyone at this great event.

    Lots of fun things. I think that Mendocino event sounds very interesting. I hope that one of the Northern California Snoothers can get over there and give is a report.

  • The Alsace Varietals festival is an awesome event. I went a few years ago with my older brother and had a great time. Tasty food and great wines from all over the country & overseas.
    Besides Navarro, my favorites were the intriguing wines from the Leelanau Peninsula: Bel Lago (Auxerrois!), Black Star Farms, Left Foot Charley & Chateau Grand Traverse.
    Bel Lago doesn't ship outside of MI, so local Snoothers, check them out.
