If you have a grenache, grenache rose', or red blend that grenache is the leading variety, we'd love you to pour.

Venue Details: I am again holding the tasting at my new Farm/Vineyard in the Greenhouse. There is no charge for the event, but a $5-10 donation to help defray expenses is appreciated, a portion of which is donated to the YWCA.
Please note, this is a working farm, with parts under contruction, including the new GRENACHE vineyard.
Start time :is 6 pm. We end promptly at 8 pm, so don't be late!
Food Truck (Hopefully)
I am hoping again to offer a foodtruck, both during the tasting, and for the party after. Street-Eatz may not be able to do it this time (great job last time) so am looking for referrals as well.
Outside Lounge: As with #pinotsmackdown day, there will be an outside lounge area. Take a break, grab a bite, chat with friends.
Provided: Stems, spit cups, water, amazing wines, name tag. You will also be given a detailed tasting sheet and voting sheet, and be asked to select your top 3 Wines of the night.
What to Bring:
- If you have a clipboard to carry around your tasting sheet and scoring card, would be helpful.(I have about 30)
- Stemware provided is Wine Road standard glasses. Feel free to bring your favorite Glass.
- Smartphone to Tweet fave items (if on Twitter)
WiFi & Twitter: This IS a Twitter live event, so we do ask you Tweet about the wines. Two open Wifi Spots will be available to use if your cell coverage (AT&T) is spotty.
Parking: ALL parking, save for pouring wineries, is on the street. Across the street is a vineyard with enough edge space for 40-50 cars. You should also be able to park on my side of the road.
You can also go past the house around the bend past the house and park.
