Join us for a zoom-based happy hour and winter wine tasting this SATURDAY evening Feb 20th with the winemaker Bradley Brown of cult label BIG BASIN Vineyards from California's Santa Cruz Mountains AVA! We'll be tasting and zooming with Brad and surfin' up some righteous wines. It'll be killer dudes!
The tasting starts at 5pm with FIVE brilliant wines made by Brad, showcasing the wines of the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA.
We will be tasting a lineup of Chard, Pinot and Syrah - five wines in all.
Bradley is the founder, vineyard manager, and guide, uncompromising in his commitment to producing authentic and compelling wines, farming organically, and working with the best vineyard sites throughout the Santa Cruz and Gabilan Mountains.
Bradley was drawn to California post college for the natural beauty of the Sierras where he climbed, backpacked, and skied. He gradually made his way down the peninsula to Portola Valley and eventually to Boulder Creek in the heart of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
We've had the pleasure of hosting Brad and the BIG BASIN wines over the last decade at a number of great in-store events and dinner, so we're thrilled to bring you this LIVE zoom tasting.
