Enjoy an Epic Tasting of 1968 Napa Valley Cabernets and Other Upcoming Events

Taste Multiple 1968 Napa Valley Cabernet in Livermore—October 27

You probably take claims such as “once in a lifetime opportunity!” with a grain of salt. Yeah, me too. But then there’s this... Starting at 4pm on Sunday, October 27 a small group of people will be tasting drinking seven 1968 Cabernet Sauvignon (and other aged wines) over a very good, multi-course dinner in a private room at a nice restaurant. You can be in that group. There are currently just 3 or 4 seats available.

Here’s the full wine list for the evening, unless something else gets added:
1968 Hanzell Chardonnay Sonoma
1968 Louis M. Martini Pinot Noir Reserve
1968 Inglenook Charbono
1968 Heitz Martha’s Vineyard Cabernet 1968 BV George de la Tour Private Reserve
1968 Inglenook Cask H-12 Cabernet
1968 Souverain Napa Cabernet (Howell Mt.)
1968 Buena Vista Cask 102 Sonoma Cabernet
1968 Robert Mondavi Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Unfined
1968 Charles Krug Vintage Selection Cesare Mondavi Cabernet
1968 Mayacamas late harvest Zinfandel
1957 Ficklin LBV Port (Made from a solera of the 1948 through 1957 vintages)

As you might suspect, this tasting isn’t free. But it’s not crazy expensive either. The tasting fee is $125 and you also pay for your own dinner and gratuity. I’d estimate the grand total to be about $235. You can buy tickets here.
Note: I’ll be in attendance but I’m not the tasting organizer and am not receiving any of the proceeds (which are just going to defray part of the wine cost anyway).

Hopland Passport in Hopland, Mendocino—October 19 & 20

Hopland Passport LogoHopland is a cute little town and a visit there is fun anytime. However, Hopland’s Fall Passport weekend will be especially festive. From 11am to 5pm each day, you’ll taste new and library wines from fifteen local vintners. And, of course, there’ll be plenty of food too.

Tickets are $45 in advance, $55 at the event. For tickets or more information, visit Destination Hopland.

The participating wineries include Brutocao Cellars, Campovida, Cesar Toxqui Cellars, Frey Vineyards, Graziano Family, Jaxon Keys Winery, Jeriko Estate, McFadden Farm, McNab Ridge Winery, Milano Winery, Nelson Family Vineyards, Ray’s Station, Saracina and Terra Savia.


Howell Mountain Harvest Celebration in Yountville—November 2

There are great wines coming from Howell Mountain. But, not all of the wineries are open to the public and a “passport” event could be hazardous given the narrow, winding roads. So Howell Mountain vintners trek down the hill for big tastings like their Howell Mountain Harvest Celebration. This time it will be held at V Wine Cellar in Yountville.

The tasting features 18 Howell Mountain wineries and will run from 1pm to 4pm on Saturday, November 2. In addition to the wine, there’ll be delicious food from a range of providers and winery chefs, plus live blues music. Buy your tickets soon, they are $55 right now but will go to $75 soon. Tickets will be $95 at the door.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?

There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused ..
Any recommendations ? Thanks a lot!

I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any
interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as
you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
