Sustainably farmed in Clarksburg and dominated by notes of bright tropical fruit and a touch of minerality. It's a great wine (either on its own or as part of a blend)...we've just got more than we need for our own program. Email Rick Taylor, winemaker (rick@riazawines.com) for the particulars.

This year’s event will highlight Tempranillo’s aging potential with a Kickoff Seminar from 12-1:30 pm comparing pairs of Aged and New Tempranillos from the same vintner.  See one of the reasons why Tempranillo is the fastest growing variety worldwide! 

This one-of-a-kind seminar will feature pioneer vintners pulling aged Tempranillos from their cellars to pair with their current release wines.  Vintner panelists will share their thoughts on this noble variety while tasting guests on delicious aged Tempranillos.  The session will be moderated by Stuart Spencer, owner and winemaker of St.Amant Winery and President of TAPAS.  Tickets are $95 and include early admission to the consumer tasting.
