Annual Winemaker’s Lunch on August 14th
We are teaming up once again with local chef Jeff Scott for a pre-harvest Winemaker’s Lunch at the winery! Chef Jeff will pair 4 Alta Colina wines with a delicious summer menu and we’ll be serving it up in the barrel room for $50 per person, $40 for Club members and their guests. Folks that are joining the Paso Robles Rhone Rangers on Saturday evening at Rhones on the Range (more details below) will also be able to join us for $40 per person. Lunch was a ton of fun last year and we’re looking forward to dining with 35 of you again this year. To reserve your seats, email Maggie with the details. If, for some crazy reason you’re not sold already, here are some menu highlights:
- Oak Ember Roasted Berkshire Pork Loin with 25 Year Aged Balsamic
- Mascarpone-Polenta Gratin with Parmigiano Reggiano
- Thyme Grilled Sunburnt Squash with Fennel Confit and Melted Leeks
- Organic Heirloom Tomatoes with Handmade Feta and Italian Salsa Verde
August 13th & 14th: Make It a Paso Rhone Weekend
For all of you near and far, the weekend of August 13th and 14th is a great time to make that trip to Paso you’ve been planning in the back of your mind! Make your way into town to taste in Paso Robles wine country on Saturday, then join Alta Colina and many of our fellow Paso Robles Rhone producers at one of the local Rhone Rangers signature events: Rhones on the Range. On Sunday, after a solid sleep-in of course, come out to the winery for our annual Winemaker’s Lunch featuring an irresistable summer menu (how tasty does that menu look?!) prepared by Chef Jeff Scott paired with our awesome wines! Tickets for Rhones on the Range are available online and include food and tasting with wines from over 25 Paso Robles Rhone producers. To reserve your seats for the Winemaker’s Lunch email Maggie. Don’t forget, Club members and Rhones on the Range attendees can get in on this multi-course lunch for only $40!
Where Have All the Syrahs Gone? And the Rose Too?!
Thanks to all of your enthusiasm for these wines, all three of our 2008 Syrahs and our 2010 Rose are VERY close to sold out. We’re into the single digits on the number of cases we have left of the 2008 Old 900 Syrah, Toasted Slope Syrah, Keystone Syrah, and 2010 Rose. If you’d like to stock up before we sell out you can order online or email Maggie with your order. All wines will be distributed on a first come, first served basis and shipping will depend on the weather. Those of you who have placed orders in the last few weeks, your wines have been set aside and will be shipped when we see a break in the summer heat.
