The last Vintages release of November always features a large selection of high end wines just in time for the holiday season. This year instead of calling it their 'Iconic' release, Vintages has labeled it "California Premium and Gifting'. This is a chance to taste a number of these 'Premium' wines plus other recommended wines from the release. We encourage you to register sooner than later as all members signed up by Sunday, November 19 will be invited to suggest a few of their choices from the release. We will consider the requests as we make the final selection, particularly looking at popular items based on multiple responses along with any intriguing thematic suggestions.
The VPR is an opportunity to “try before you buy” a number of wines to be released by Vintages on the following Saturday. Taste some selected, expensive, highly reputed wines that might not cross your palate otherwise and also have the chance to discover wines offering exceptional price/quality ratios and affordable lesser-known premium quality products that are well-made bargains. This tasting will be lead by guild director Rod Story.

Come and join us for an aftertoon at KIN Vineyards for a Tour and Tasting.
KIN is the regions newest vineyard and winery, having just opened their tasting room this year.

Each vineyard supports a distinct terroir, a unique personality, and a tremendous potential for remarkable wine.
This event provides a two hour tour and tasting which takes you into the vineyard (weather permitted) or the production facility. Our guide will explain the history of the vineyard and what happens on the agricultural side, followed by the tasting of 4 wines inside and including a cheese and charcuterie board to go with the tasting.
We look forward to seeing you there.
