We have enjoyed our Tasty Tuesday Live events and are taking a break during Harvest!

It’s been our pleasure to bring a little bit of Napa Valley to you with Proprietor René Schlatter, Merryvale Winemaker Andrew Wright, Starmont Winemaker Jeff Crawford and other “special” guests during the last few months. We look forward to “seeing” you again after harvest. If you aren’t already a facebook follower, now is a great time to get connected!

Take another look at our Tasty Tuesdays:

On Tuesday, August 4th, Andrew and Jeff shared the stage with Master of Wine Olga Karapanou-Crawford and discussed the Starmont Rhône varietals: 2018 Viognier, 2016 Stanly Ranch Syrah and 2015 GSM. Click here to view this video.

On Tuesday, July 7th, we barbecued on the deck at the Profile Estate Vineyard and sipped some of our favorite wines for summer grilling: 2014 Chairman’s Selection Red Wine, 2015 Malbec and 2016 Petite Sirah. Click here to view this video.

On Tuesday, June 9th, we welcomed you back to Merryvale and let everyone know that we are open again for wine tastings! Also, got a sneak peek of the Profile Tasting Tank and enjoyed talking about the Merryvale Stanly Ranch Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc and Antigua Dessert Wine. Click here to view this video.

On Tuesday, May 5th, we welcomed you into the Merryvale Barrel Chai for a look at our Profile Library Allocation Program. For many years, we have painstakingly set aside a portion of each vintage for re-release from our wine library. For this discussion, René, Andrew and Jeff tasted the 2006, 2009 and 2012 Profile and gave you their thoughts on where these wines are in their evolution, provided insight into why our wines age so well and demonstrated the use of the Coravin for enjoying older wines.

On Tuesday, April 28th, we took you on a virtual “tasting tour” of the Profile Estate Vineyard and explored the wines that are exclusively sourced from this spectacular vineyard site. René, Andrew and Jeff opened 2010 Saint Helena Cab, 2016 Profile and the first vintage of our Profile Estate Vineyard Block Series Cab, the 2016 F1.

On Tuesday, April 21st, Andrew and Jeff talked about our favorite wines for spring:  Merryvale Solstice Sparkling Wine, the just released 2019 Merryvale Sauvignon Blanc and our 2018 Starmont Rosé of Pinot Noir. Click to watch and we’re sure you’ll want some of these refreshing wines!

On Tuesday, April 14th, Cabernet was king with Andrew and Jeff sharing their experiences making this wine in Napa Valley and offering their thoughts on the 2014 Merryvale Calistoga Cab, 2016 Merryvale Napa Cab and 2016 Starmont Napa Cab. Click this link to hear what they had to say!

On Tuesday, April 7th, Andrew and Jeff tackled Carneros Pinot Noir and tasted three 2015 Starmont single vineyard Pinot Noirs — the Stanly Ranch Estate, Lee Vineyard and Brown Ranch — and with delicious pizzas from Pizzeria Tra Vigne in the foreground, they enticed us with their thoughts about these wines.

On Tuesday, March 31st, we hosted our first facebook live event with Andrew and Jeff. They tasted and provided insights into the 2018 Merryvale Chardonnay and the 2013 Forward Kidd Red Wine. Click here to watch the inaugural video! Be patient, we get them right-side up in just a bit!

Stay well and stay safe… and make things a bit better with a great glass of wine… Cheers!
