Our wildly popular wine tasting program is back! Each month, we'll take a virtual tour of one of the world's wine regions on Zoom with Steve Wilson of City Wine Market, 4821 W 6th St Suite N, Lawrence, KS 66049. Wine purchases are optional.
October: “A Look a CA Central’s Coast AVA (American Viticultural Area).
This very large wine region spans from just north of Monterey all the way to Southern Santa Barbara County and includes 44 sub-AVA’s, all with their own unique characteristics. While this region has produced wine for some time, it’s seen as an up-and-coming region, as younger wine makers flock to this region to take advantage of lower land and grape costs and the sheer diversity of growing sites (terroir).
To illustrate this diversity, we will taste two wines:
A Chardonnay from Central Coast hall-of-famer, Greg Brewer, called Diatom. Greg was named Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s Winemaker of the Year for 2020. Diatom Chardonnay comes from a vineyard planted over 20 years ago in the Los Alamos region of Santa Barbara County and is a perfect example of Santa Barbara Chardonnay-- a counterpoint to the typical oaky/buttery “California” style.
To contrast this lighter, more elegant style of wine, we will also taste Field Recording’s FICTION red. The wine comes from a young winemaker named Andrew Jones, who is making wine in Paso Robles. Fiction is hearty red blend with layers of ripe fruit.”
Diatom Chardonnay $24.99
Field Recordings FICTION RED, $16.99
