Saturday Tasting: Sonoma Mountain Winery

By July 8, 2017 Tasting No Comments

Saturday, July 8th, 1-4pm
$10 for 5+ wines

Sonoma Mountain Winery is the most exciting winery in California at the moment. It combines a deep attachment to the tradition of natural winemaking in California with an affinity for the avant-garde styles of wine coming out of France, Italy and Spain. While informed by his father Tony’s unwavering approach to natural farming and winemaking, Nic is committed to making wines in his own style: energetic blends of red and white grapes, lush and unfiltered Chardonnay, and atypical bottlings of Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. They conjure a hazy image of Sonoma before the Pinot Noir craze, when it was still a patchwork of orchards, fields and vineyards populated by Italian immigrants, hippies and farmers. Nic also makes the wines for Côte des Cailloux, a tiny project focused on Rhône Varieties. All the wines are made with organic grapes and without any additions ever. Come meet Nic and his affable band of teammates this Saturday, and taste the future of California
natural wine. It’s probably different than what you imagine.
