SPECIAL EVENT 5/21/2021 - IN-STORE AND ZOOM Tasting w/ Casey Stringer, owner & winemaker at Stringer Cellars

JOIN US for our FIRST in-store tasting as we bring you winemaker Casey Stringer of STRINGER CELLARS, live via stream to the Petit Philippe tasting room! You'll be able to taste in-store and see Casey on the big screen OR take the Zoom tasting kit home. Either route, please join us!
We are thrilled to introduce you to this NEW wine to NC! We tasted the wines a couple months ago and were SO smitten with all of the STRINGER wines, that we quickly ordered the highly allocated amount we could get our hands on and put a date on the calendar. And the wines are en-route from California as we speak!
Stringer Cellars makes their wine high up on Atlas Peak in the Napa Valley and at a winery in the heart of Sonoma County. It’s a true Sonoma-based, family-run winery and their winemaking philosophy is simple: use the finest grapes they can find from the best vineyard sites in California to make small lot wines - which really are remarkably impressive. Casey employs minimalist winemaking techniques, allowing the fruit and individual vineyards to shine through in each bottle. These are unquestionably opulent, New World wines, yet still incredibly balanced, pure, and fresh - whilst full-bodied at the same time! The whole team at Petit was quite blown away with how beautiful these wines are showing... and considering price, this is a really impressive label you are going to want to pay attention to... this is a label to pop from it's current sleepy status, and you'll already be on the band wagon.
You will have the opportunity to taste these small production, highly expressive wines that have been exclusively selected by Petit Philippe.
There are a limited number of tickets available and it's first-come, first served!
Purchase your tickets here! You're options are come IN-STORE and visit with a BIG SCREEN webcast, or pickup the kit and watch from home via Zoom. Two great options!
As always, our tasting events are carefully planned and presented, with the paramount goal of bringing you only the best and brightest winemakers to further your passionate wine journey - THAT is why we do these tasting events!
Be well & see you soon!
Meet Casey Stringer
IN-STORE OR ZOOM Tasting Kit & Online Visit with the winemaker
A fortuitous visit to the Napa Valley as a teenager set a path for Casey Stringer's life in wine. That journey was not a straight line.
After work in a Wisconsin wine shop turned him into a sixteen year old wine nerd, Casey left The Badger State to go to college in Santa Barbara. Upon arrival a part-time job at Fiddlehead Cellars convinced him of his calling into wine. A whirlwind of travel for wine jobs followed, taking him to Napa, Oregon, New Zealand, and then back to Santa Barbara.
While love, marriage, and family had Casey hit the pause button on commercial winemaking for awhile and return to life in Wisconsin, the desire to resume his wine career eventually returned. Casey scratched that itch by returning to the Napa Valley. Today the Stringer Cellars label features a lineup of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Grenache (normally winery-tasting room only) and Chardonnay sourced from outstanding vineyards.
To learn more about the road that led him here, join us for our first IN-STORE streamed tasting! And if you're less comfortable in-store, pickup the tasting kit and login to the Zoom room!
