Details: For this special tasting we will feature the wines of Kistler Vineyards, long the gold standard in California Chardonnay. This small, family-owned and -operated winery in the Russian River Valley was founded in 1978 by the Kistler family. If you are looking for a chardonnay that is both delicious when young with incredible aging potential, this is the wine you want. These wines are very difficult to get your hands on, some donít miss out on this glorious tasting. $65 For those of you unfamiliar with how a blind tasting works, let me give you a quick primer. At each tasting we will feature a single varietal. (for example: Zinfandel). The Grapevine will select 5 wines of that varietal for the tasting. The wines will be placed in bags so you will not know the producers of the wines you are trying. The wines are poured into your 5 glasses and then you taste, swirling and sniffing and sampling over the next hour. You can take notes and choose your favorites if you like. At the end of the tasting, we will discuss the wines and then unveil them. The event usually takes about 1-1/2 hours. Each tasting is limited to 10 people. You can come to one or come to them all, just pick the ones that interest you most.
