WHY A SUMMER BARREL TASTING?
AREN’T MOST HELD IN THE SPRING?
The majority of Anderson Valley wineries produce high-end Pinot Noir, and Pinot really tastes best right before bottling time. By holding a barrel tasting in the summer, attendees will be able to evaluate the wines in a nearly finished state, instead of young wines that will change dramatically during the aging process.
So, when you buy futures, you know exactly what you’ll be receiving the next year!
