Tomorrow we are really pleased to be welcoming a special guest to our wine bar — Greg from Guglielmo Winery will be joining us on Saturday from 12:00 to 4:30 and pouring some of the wineries loveliest wines for you to try.
Guglielmo Winery is the oldest, consistently operating, family owned winery in Santa Clara Valley. Emilio Guglielmo established the winery in 1925 after emigrating to the area from the Piedmonte region of Italy and thanks to an underground cellar where wine was made in monstrous redwood tanks during Prohibition, it has been continually in operation to present day, and owned by the same family, which is incredibly rare.
Today, third generation brothers George E., Gene and Gary keep the family tradition alive by producing award-winning wines from more than 100 acres of Santa Clara Valley estate vineyards — as well as grapes from other premium wine growing regions in California.
Greg will be pouring a selection of wine including Emile’s Grand Cuvee Champagne — yes it can legally be called Champagne. He will also be pouring a 2013 Private Reserve Estate Grignolino – a very rare varietal, Guglielmo’s is one of only two growers in the country.
Here are some more notes on wines that will be poured on Saturday. Don’t miss the chance to sip these winners.
Emile’s Grand Cuvee Champagne
Produced in a drier “Brut” style, the Grand Cuvee is the driest and most sophisticated of our Emile’s sparkling wines. This elegant California Champagne is crisp and clean on the finish. The Grand Cuvee is produced from California grapes
2013 Private Reserve Pinot Grigio
Light straw in color this wine offers notes of lemon lime, blossom nectar, white peach, and subtle minerality.
On the palate, look for notes of stone fruit, pear and citrus.
2013 Private Reserve Estate Grignolino
Aromas of enticing berry and cherry. The mixed berry flavors on the palate are nicely accentuated by a touch of spice.
2010 Private Reserve Syrah – Santa Lucia Highlands
Aromas of dark fruits and black plum. Palate offers nuances of ripe berries and spice
