Near the end of July, we headed to Geyserville, CA to enjoy some lobster and Sbragia Chardonnay with the Sbragia's at their Dry Creek Valley tasting room! We found out about this event for wine club members in April on our river cruise in France. Not living in California or near the tasting room has made it almost impossible to attend events they have throughout the year. So needless to say, we made plans for this event and were really excited about going. And we had invited Mike and Natalie to go with us.
This low country lobster boil was eaten right off the table outside the tasting room on the terrace with plenty of Chardonnay to drink. With music, laughter, plenty of hungry people, Sbragia Chardonnay and the Sbragias, this was the perfect party!
There's Mike, Don, Rebecca and Scott Scherr dining with us!
Adam and Kathy invited us to see their offices and wine storage barrels below the tasting room. All six of us were delighted to get an inside look at what makes Sbragia Family Vineyards so desirable. I believe it's their commitment to making the best wines possible not only because they enjoy wine, but because they want others to enjoy it also. It's got to be very hard work, but it's very appreciated by everyone who drinks their wines.
Adam gave each couple a bottle of 2013 Neal Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain and a bottle of 2013 Siena Dale Dessert Wine. Neither of these wines have been released yet. So we were pretty blessed to receive these from Adam and Kathy. Thank you again so much!
We went back to the offices where Adam opened a bottle of the Neal Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and it was absolutely divine!
After the bottle was finished which didn't take long, we went back up to the tasting room, checked out other areas of the room and then settled on the porch outside to visit with Adam and Kathy. We closed down the tasting room, the Sbragia's left to pick up their children and we said our goodbyes to the Scherrs. What a fun night!
