This coming Sunday, June 27th, we’ll be at our “big sister” winery’s table (Ancient Oak Cellars) at the San Francisco Pinot Days’ Grand Festival held in at Fort Mason from 1-5pm. As the website says, “Sunday’s Grand Festival at Fort Mason in San Francisco will showcase more than 220 phenomenal producers of pinot noir. Consumers will be able to sample up to 500 pinots from every important domestic pinot noir region, from the Russian River Valley to the Santa Lucia Highlands, Oregon to Carneros, the Anderson Valley to the Sonoma Coast to the Santa Rita Hills.”
We’ll be pouring our 47 Friends Russian River Valley 2008 Pinot Noir there. We hope to see many of you – old friends and new – at this event.Â If you’re a new friend, please introduce yourselves to us – especially if you are a Facebook friend. Just think – this could be you in the next photo (this is our friends Virginia and Andrew, us, and our winemaker Joe Freeman at another tasting).
We had a great time earlier this month at the Russian River Valley Winegrower’s “Single Night” Tasting. It was a night dedicated to Single Vineyard-Designate wines from the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County, California. We were thrilled to be in such amazing company. We “got in the door” at this event again because of our “big sister” winery, Ancient Oak Cellars (has anyone else had a big sister who took them to parties?)
So here’s to many more fun times with 47 Friends wines – and you! Hope to see you at Pinot Days, or another great event in the future. If you know of an event we should attend – or if you want to host your own party and want 47 Friends wines there – let us know.
