Barbera Blast! – Fall Wine Club Release Party

Date: Saturday, November 10th

At the Club Member fall distribution party we are showcasing the RM estate grown Barbera. Club members will get a sneak peak of the upcoming single varietal 2015 Barbera to be released next year. The 2015 vintage has a story of its own – some come prepared to learn. Participate in a “Taste and Talk” with staff, including RM’s Level 1 Somm and our “Name That Note” wine class teacher. Find out why Barbera is challenging to grow, how it blends with fellow Italian and bolder French Bordeaux varietals, and what it pairs well with. You will have so fun you won’t even know you are learning at our first Barbera Blast!
