So, full disclosure, this post is essentially directed at those of you who will be in the vicinity of our Monte Bello Tasting Room this Saturday. Why? Because we’re havin’ a rippin’ good event on the 23rd, right here on the mountain!
Now, that said, some of what will transpire, at least from a content standpoint, is certainly good information for all, but for the purposes of this post, I’ll be speaking specifically about the on-site activities.
What we’ll be doing is debuting a brand-new event, Ridge A to Z! This is essentially a showcase event for our Wine Programs (ATP to Zlist, with the good ol’ Monte Bello Collector in between!); an event for which we’ll be pouring spectacular examples of the wines available through the various memberships. And to support it all culinarily, the marvelous folks from Fatted Calf Charcuterie will be on hand to provide on-site sliced organic salumi! Dig!
Here’s the official storyline, which can also be found on our Events Page:
Discover Ridge Membership and Enjoy Salumi from Fatted Calf
Monte Bello Tasting Room (Cupertino)
January 23, 11 – 4
Please join Ridge Vineyards at our A to Z Membership Event! Wondering about the ATP program? Ever weighed the benefits of Z list membership? Curious about buying “futures” in the Monte Bello Collector Program? Let us take the confusion out of the equation by hosting you for a delicious, educational, and program-focused tasting. Sip, swirl, and taste the offerings at each wine program station, and in between tastes, you can take a moment to chat with the staff from Fatted Calf Charcuterie*, who will be on-hand serving up samples of their organic salumi from their onsite slicer! As you visit each membership station you will discover what each program has on offer, and in the process become acquainted with both our single-vineyard wines, and our knowledgeable staff.
In addition, we will be making available an exclusive short-list pricelist of limited-production and end-of-vintage wines that only members have access to!
This event is complimentary to members of our wine programs, and $10 for the general public. The event price includes a Ridge logo glass.
*The Fatted Calf is an artisanal charcuterie producing a wide range of hand crafted products using high quality, natural ingredients. They use the best available products; organic and hormone free meats, superior seasonings and salts, organic herbs and produce.
Just in case you’re having trouble visualizing what Fatted Calf staffers engaging in on-site slicing might look like, here’s a little assistance; a shot from our Lytton Springs facility, where the Fatted Calfers were very recently doing their thing:
Well, I think that about says it all! But for the ever-more curious amongst ye, you can also check out the event tasting menu by clicking here, and you can find out what wines we’ll be pouring.
