We enjoyed another great Rhone Rangers San Francisco Tasting June 10 at the Golden Gate Club Presidio. We enjoyed taking with sustainable and biodynamic winemakers including Tara Gomez (KITA), Lise and Vincent Ciolino (Montemaggiore), and representatives from Beckmen Vineyards, Bonny Doon, and Miner.
See the Pictures below and Watch the video of Tara Gomez, Winemaker from KITA. "KITA means "Our Valley Oak" in the Santa Ynez Chumash native language of Samala. The Chumash believe the valley Oak is a true gift from our Creator, a tree that provides not only strength but also nourishment to the people. Like the valley Oak, our wine highlights the gifts from Mother Earth, and embodies the soil, Climate, flavors, and spirit of the Santa Ynez Valley." The KITA 2014 SPE'Y Red Wine is 55% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 20% Carignane. All of the wines have been harvested by hand.
