I am pleased to announce that Robbie Rugman, Gallo’s UK Fine Wine Ambassador, will be hosting a tasting of these wines for us.
We will be tasting their fine wines predominantly from California: floral balanced Pinot Gris from the cool regions of Russian River, deep perfumed Pinots from the MacMurray Ranch, heavier and very rewarding Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley and Sonoma County produced by the pioneer Louis M. Martini. Plus, the opportunity to taste Chardonnay from Washington State. Washington’s wine region has flown under the radar with its neighbor Oregon taking center stage as the new exciting region. Washington has amazing potential with its 16 hour sunlight average summer days and low rainfall, no wonder it produces over 16 grape varietals from the region!
We look forward to seeing you there.
