WINE WEDNESDAY-L'ARCO VINI (SAN JOSE)

WINE WEDNESDAY-L'ARCO VINI (SAN JOSE)

from 20.00

Girasole Imports invites you to experience the wines of Luca Fedrigo. This is an opportunity to taste through a portfolio which carries forward the heritage of Giuseppe Quintarelli, an icon of the wines of Valpolicella in Northern Italy, into a new generation. The wines are available on a limited basis from Girasole Imports in partnership with Luca. These are wines made from native Corvina, Molinara, Rondinella and more, using methods that produce rich, ripe, intense, and balanced reds that pair well with stewed and braised meats, roasts, game and other fall dishes.

L’Arco is a project of passion stemmed from the tutelage of the legendary Amarone producer Giuseppe Quintarelli. At the young age of 17, Luca Fedrigo began his winemaking career when Giuseppe offered him an apprenticeship and took him under his wing. After 11 years of diligent practice, and with the support of Quintarelli, Luca decided to form his own winery, L’Arco. The estate is located in the most traditional of all seven Valpolicella zones, Negrar, and is in close proximity to the Quintarelli estate. The winery’s name, which literally means “The Arch”, refers to a stone arch called “Arco di Giove” that dates back to the 16th century and can be seen from the Fedrigo family’s farmhouse. For Luca, the Arch forges a connection to the past and he hopes to inspire that same connection with each of his traditionally made wines.

We will be pouring the full line-up of L’Arco wines: Amarone Classico, Acrum, Valpolicella, Pario, Rosso Veronese, Rubeo and Zoe Recioto

This is a casual, walk-up tasting. Please purchase tickets through link below.

$20 Members/$25 General

SIBONA ANTICA DISTILLERIA

10.00

ONLINE TICKET SALES HAVE ENDED. PLENTY OF TICKETS AVAILABLE ONSITE!

Join us in San Jose for the exclusive South Bay tasting of these grappas and amaros, a favorite of Enoteca partner Joe Cannistraci. Enjoy sipping as you hear stories and the distillation process from Sibona owner & CEO, Luigi Barbero.

The Antica Distilleria Domenico Sibona S.p.A. is situated in the Roero zone, in the communal district of Piobesi d’Alba, a few kilometres from Alba. It was founded about a hundred years ago on the former premises of an old kiln. The distillery is located in the center of an important wine zone, where the most typical varietals from Piedmont are cultivated: Nebbiolo, from which Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero wines are created according to their own zones of production, along with Barbera, Dolcetto, Moscato, Chardonnay, Arneis and Brachetto vines. Sibona is one of the historic distilleries in the Piedmont region and can boast the oldest distillation licence, the N° 1, issued by UTF (the offi­cial institution that regulates all the operations having to do with distilleries). This is a synonym for a great past and ongoing prestige production.

Luigi was on his way to completing a degree in Engineering but a constant pull to the beverage business and a death in the Sibona family brought him to the distillery in the early 90’s. There, he turned his passion towards increasing both the quantity and the quality of the Sibona line of products. Today, Luigi continues to push himself and the distillery to new heights, and in 2016 the Sibona Grappa Port Wood Finish received an award for Best Grappa at the IWSC in London.

This is a casual, stand up tasting. Tasting fee will be applied as a credit towards any bottles purchased on event night.

If you wish to dine before or after the tasting, please call us at 408-618-5455 to make a table reservation.

WINE WEDNESDAY-GIRASOLE TASTING (San Jose)

Wednesday, September 26, 2018
6:30 - 8:30pm

Join our partners in Italian wine, Girasole Imports, for a walk through Manduria, Puglia, home of Primitivo di Maduria. Primitivo di Manduria is a heavy, rich red wine, an effect of the warm growing conditions in Southern Italy's Apulia region. It is made from the locally grown Primitivo grape (also known as Zinfandel)

The quality of Primitivo wine has been recognized in Italy for centuries. It was once mainly used for blending by more commercially successful wineries in Northern Italy. They relied on it to give their wines depth.

The Primitivo grape variety was discovered to be genetically similar to California's Zinfandel. It has its roots in the oldest of wine traditions. Primitivo di Manduria DOC is made from 100% Primitivo grapes (unlike other Primitivo wines, like Gioia del Colle Primitivo, which are blends). Wines made from Primitivo have notes of plum and spice, like Zinfandel, but because of different growing soils and climate, the fruit character is less jammy, the structure more akin to old world wines, with rustic notes of earth and spice, as well as tamed fruit flavors

Paula & Marc of Girasole Imports will be pouring CP Vini Produttori di Maduria’s wines at this special tasting. These wines are perfect for upcoming fall menus.

Casual, walk-up tasting.

VEUVE FOURNY & FILS PAIRED TASTING (San Jose)

$80 per person includes champagne tasting & food pairings (excludes gratuity and tax)

EXCLUSIVE SOUTH BAY EVENT!

Champagne Tasting with Charles-Henry Fourny

of

Veuve Fourny & Fils

Champagne Veuve Fourny & Fils has been an active family domaine since 1856. The estate is located in the prestigious Côte des Blancs, in the premier cru village of Vertus. Brothers Charles-Henry and Emmanuel Fourny sustainably farm nearly nine hectares of vineyards and have been carrying on the family winegrowing tradition since 1993.

Veuve Fourny produces classic grower Champagne, raising pedigreed fruit, adhering to high standards, and hand-crafting wines that showcase the chalky terroir of Vertus. The house style at Veuve Fourny is best characterized as classic Côte des Blancs: a fine bead, rich, deep aromatics, and a complex minerality emphasizing freshness and purity.

The Fournys believe in minimal dosage for all of their Champagnes, preferring to let the individual terroirs express themselves more clearly. This practice, in addition to their dedication to partial malolactic fermentations in their overall blends, impeccable vineyard management, owning old vines, and their decision to age most base wine partially in barrel, all contribute to their unique style.

In an exclusive South Bay engagement, we’ll have Charles-Henry Fourny on hand to discuss his family’s history, their winegrowing practices and their winemaking philosophy as he leads us through a tasting of his some of his family’s wines.  Each wine will be paired with a specially prepared small-plates menu.Champagne fans – don’t miss out on this!

This is a seated tasting event, reservations with a credit card are required. Cancellations made with less than a 48 hour advance notice will incur a $50 fee per person. When you make your reservation please enter “Champagne” in the notes.

Tentative Pour List & Menu*:

NV Vertus Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru-paired with Croques Monsieur Bites

NV Vertus Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru-paired with French Onion Puff Pastry

Join ELS San Jose in welcoming Rombauer Vineyards! 

ONLINE TICKET SALES HAVE BEEN CUT OFF. TICKETS AVAILABLE ONSITE.

"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.

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.
