It feels like a primetime for The Noble Grape to square off two fantastic wineries. One is New World, the other Old World. That’s right, Californian winery Dry Creek Vineyard and French winery Château de Gayon are the highlights of this weeks tastings! Both wineries are very special, and should not be missed!
Dry Creek Vineyard was the first new winery established in the Dry Creek Valley after Prohibition. It was David Stare’s vision to plant Sauvignon Blanc that firmly cemented the winery’s legacy as one of California’s most important wineries. This Wednesday, The Noble Grape will be tasting out their Chenin Blanc, Fumé Blanc, Zinfandel, and The Mariner.
Château de Gayon is an estate located in Southwestern France, near the Pyrenees Mountains. The castle dates back to the 13th century, years before the birth of Henry IV. It belongs to the small Madiran appellation. On Friday, David Ebert is sampling their ‘Goutte d'Soleil’ Gros Manseng, ‘Goutte d'Or’ Petit Manseng, ‘Dou Hauret’ Cabernet Franc blend, and ‘dou Barrinquet’ Cabernet Sauvignon blend.
