TASTE: Wine, Art, Beer and Music – UC Davis Event

University of California Davis’ annual TASTE event highlights the region’s foods and beverages as participants stroll the grounds near the Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, and enjoy the art exhibits in the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Schrem Musuem of Art. 

The Oct 19, 2019 event includes tastings from eateries, breweries, and wineries.  SHW is proud to be a partner in this event by pouring wines made by SHW members. If you are interested in donating your wines, please contact Seth Brunner at sethbrunner@sbcglobal.net.

You can also support this event by enjoying the evening on the campus.  Registration details can be found here.

Grapes for Sale: Syrah – Mokelumne River AVA, Lodi

Grower Ryan McBride writes:

Just wanted to offer my grapes for sale to the Sacramento Home Winemakers Club this year. I had a few club members come out last year and would love to have them back again. I’ve got a small 2 acre block of 19-year old Syrah vines located in Lodi, CA in the Mokelumne River AVA.

I’m selling grapes for $800/ton or $0.50/lb you pick. The grapes are looking great this year but it’s a small crop, probably only 3 tons per acre or so. I started a Facebook page this year and have been posting pretty regularly so folks can see how things have been progressing in the vineyard. https://www.facebook.com/mcbridevineyard/.

If interested, contact Ryan McBride at (209) 981-5746.
