WINE WEDNESDAY-ROMBAUER TASTING (SAN JOSE)

WINE WEDNESDAY-ROMBAUER TASTING (SAN JOSE)

WINE WEDNESDAY-ROMBAUER TASTING (San Jose)
from 20.00

Wednesday, August 29th

6 - 8pm

Join ELS San Jose in welcoming Rombauer Vineyards! 

"We believe in doing everything in our power to produce the best wines possible."  
-Rombauer Vineyards  

Koerner and Joan Rombauer moved to the Napa Valley in 1972 with an immense appreciation for the relationship between food and wine. Many believe this is accredited to Irma Rombauer, Koerner's great aunt, who wrote the renowned cookbook The Joy of Cooking, as well as the ancestry of the Rombauer family stemming from the wine-growing region of Rheingau, Germany.

Since the release of their first wine in 1984, Rombauer Vineyards has had only three head winemakers. This has helped them achieve consistency in their style — distinctive, bold and fruit-driven wines. In addition to the signature style, Rombauer is continually refining and improving winemaking practices. Because of such high-quality standards and practices, Rombauer Vineyards has been awarded a place on many exclusive lists, including Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines list and Wine + Spirits Magazine’s Top 10 Chardonnays! 

Our Domestic Wine Specialist Joe Chiodo will host the tasting with a selection of wines for guests to sample, information on the wine and the producer, exclusive pricing on the evening's wines, & more! We look forward to seeing you there!

This is a casual, walk-up tasting. If you would also like to join us for dinner, reservations are highly recommended.

Wine Wednesday Conti Zecca Tasting presented by Girasole Imports

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018
6:30 to 8:30pm

Casual, walk-up tasting.  

Conti Zecca is considered one of the most respected wineries in Puglia. Dating back to the year 1500, Conti Zecca’s noble founders settled in Salento purchasing large plots of land to launch an agricultural venture. In 1935, Count Alcibiade Zecca focused the family’s efforts on winemaking. Several years later, his son Count Giuseppe implemented new winemaking techniques in the vineyard and cellar, including bottling the wine for commercial sale. Today, the family’s next generation — Counts Alcibiade, Francesco, Luciano, and Mario — continue to produce quality wines through a perfect balance of tradition and innovation.

Pour list to follow
Wines available at special retail pricing the night of the event.

Sushi, Whites and Bubbles Tasting Event featuring the Trifecta Cooks

What wine lover doesn’t like sushi?

We know how sublime premium Sake can be, but can the grape dance with the fish? We know it can and we’ve witnessed it! We’re welcoming the Trifecta Cooks to our San Jose location. Having executed three intimate and excellent sushi and wine pairing events with them at our Los Gatos location, we decided to add them to our summer tasting series in San Jose.

Lai, Jason and Ryan, the “Trifecta” all started with humble beginnings. Ryan scooping Ice cream, Lai washing dishes at a small Japanese restaurant and Jason at Michi sushi in Campbell. All three ended up in culinary school - Lai at the Le Cordon Bleu in Sacramento, and Ryan and Jason to the California culinary academy in San Francisco. These guys are extremely talented and have plated some of the best sushi I’ve {Joey C} had outside of Iwaki City, a coastal town located on the Pacific Coast, three hours North of Tokyo.

The event will feature unique, thought provoking and delectable pairings such as Unagi and Lambrusco, Hamachi and Gavi...the rest will be a surprise!!!

This is a pre-fixe menu at $85 per guest.  Reservations and a credit card hold are required.  Please call into the restaurant at (408) 618-5455 or reserve online via Yelp Reservations. Please indicate that you are reserving for the event and provide a credit card.  A reservation without a credit card will not be honored.

**Cancellations within 24 hours of the event will be charged the full $85 fee per guest**

A Tale of Two Pizzas - featuring ELS San Jose and Oak and Rye

A Tale of Two Pizzas - featuring ELS San Jose and Oak and Rye

In 1905, Genaro Lombardi, a Neapolitan immigrant and trained pizzaiolo, received the first
license in America to operate a pizzeria. Upon coming to America, he changed a couple of things.  In Napoli, pizza was fired with wood, in America, Genarro fired his with coal. In America, the mozzarella di buffalo, made from the milk of an indigenous Italian Buffalo was unavailable, so Genarro made his pizzas with “fiore di latte”, cow’s milk mozzarella.

Over the years, as coal was replaced by natural gas and oil burning boilers were used to heat buildings in the city, New York pizza started being made in gas deck ovens, just as most are today. There have been some advancements in Napoli as well.  For instance, the development and use of #00 flour, a super fine strain of durum wheat flour.  But for the most part, pizza in Napoli is made in the same way it has been since the 1800’s.

Currently 70% of the pizza dished out globally is New York Style or a close variation of it. Obviously, part of the reason is convenience, but it begs the question - is New York Pizza better than the traditional Napolitano style? Many claim it is! Is that a case of nostalgic east coasters being sentimental about the flavors of their youth? Is it a case of the pizza is good if the person eating it thinks it is? Well we’ll give you a great opportunity to decide for yourselves! 

We’re welcoming Oak and Rye pizza, our neighbor in Los Gatos, and provider of what we think is the best wood fired pizza for miles, to Enoteca la Storia San Jose for a side by side tasting event with their mobile wood burning pizza oven! 

The event will feature a tasting of 30 Italian wines, under $25, specifically chosen to pair with pizza.  The tasting will be $20 for WC and $25 for General.  This will be a casual, walk-up tasting event.  Pizzas will be made to order from your table.  Regular food menu available as well.  No advanced ticket purchase is required, but a reservation and a credit card hold is.  Please make your reservation by calling into the restaurant at (408) 618-5455 or reserving online via Yelp Reservations.  Please indicate that you are participating in the tasting event and provide a credit card.  A reservation without a credit card will not be honored.

**Reservations cancelled within 24 hours of the event will incur a $25 cancellation fee per guest**

The special pizza menu items for the tasting are listed below.  All items, including the tasting, are ordered separately the day of the event.  The regular menu is available as well.
