Giornata Cellars Wine Dinner Event 12 Feb 2016, 7:03 am

Giornata Cellars Wine Dinner Event


On February 11th, we were joined by Brian Terrizzi, winemaker of Giornata Cellars for a spectacular wine dinner event. Giornata started with the dream of creating wines from Italian grapes grown in California with the influence and technique of Italian winemaking. Through this style their wines favor balance and subtlety rather than the intensity and extraction characteristic of Californian wines.

Brian's enthusiasm for winemaking is shown not only in his involvement in Giornata, but also in the creation of Broadside, a central coast Californian producer.

February Featured Wine | Antinori Guado al Tasso 2004 8 Feb 2016, 2:40 am

Antinori Guado al Tasso 2004

Featured wines are available for dinner guests by the glass or by outside purchase by the bottle. This month's featured wine, Antinori Guado al Tasso 2004 is available for $25/glass or $100/bottle while supplies last.

50% Cabernet | 40% Merlot | 10% Syrah 

Guado al Tasso, meaning literally "Badger's Ford", takes its name from a common sight at the estate of Tenuta Guado al Tasso, Bolgheri, where it is produced. The vineyard is at an elevation between 44 and 58 metres (145 and 190 feet) above sea-level on stony, slightly calcareous soils. Tenuta Guado al Tasso is located 60 miles southwest of Florence, near the medieval village of Bolgheri, in an area known as the Maremma. The 900 hectares (2,223 acres) estate stretches up from the shore of the Tyrrhenian Sea to the hills, and aside from extensive vineyards, also grows wheat, corn, sunflowers, tomatoes and olive trees. Guado al Tasso was first produced in 1990; the successive vintages are 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996 and 1997. All the vintages have been produced in limited quantities.

Ruby red in color. Fruity, with hints of toast, coffee and dark chocolate. Finely structured and complex; balanced, with soft tannins and a lingering finish. Displays unmistakable varietal flavor while retaining strong regional character.


Critical Acclaim

Wine Spectator - "Intense aromas of black pepper, spices and ripe fruit. Slightly raisiny, but complex. Full-bodied, silky and rich. Stylish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and others. Best after 2010. 6,665 cases made. "

Wine Enthusiast - "Luscious, modern and concentrated, this wine delivers chocolate, exotic spice, succulent cherry, currant berry and lively buoyancy. It also has some notes that recall rubber or latex, but those don't distract. On the heels of that are thicker, more enticing notes of campfire, toasts and cedar that taste so good over the wine’s toned, well-built structure. "

North Valley Wine Tasting | Meet the Winemaker Event 3 Feb 2016, 7:10 pm

On Wednesday, February 3rd, Antrim 1844 was honored with a visit from James Cahill, the partner and winemaker for Soter's prestigious North Valley. 

This rare wine tasting featured a selection of North Valley wines best known for its locale in Oregon's most recognized appellation for cool climate varietals, Willamette Valley. It is in the Northern part of this region where the finest vineyards are found - an epicenter referred to as North Valley. From within this region of the rolling hillsides and diverse soils, the North Valley Vineyards Partners create three tiers of exceptional wines: "Classics," "Origins," and "Reserves." 

Guests began the evening gathered in the warmth of the Mansion's twin Drawing Rooms with a welcome and opening remarks from Richard and Cahill. 

Guests enjoyed a delightful array of hors d'oeuvres while tasting favorites of North Valley's reds and whites, all the while enjoying the captivating passion James shared for his love of winemaking. 

With a shared passion for wine, a visit to the wine cellar with Antrim's owner, Richard Mollett and James Cahill developed into tales of fascinating finds and unique wine experiences.
