Summer is in full swing and Sheldon Wine, Krutz Family Cellars and Two Shepherds want to celebrate with a new release summer bash! (I don't publish events normally about just my own label, but since this is three, I hope readers don't mind.)
Each winery will be releasing 1-2 new wines, including the much awaited Two Shepherds 2012 Grenache Blanc, the Krutz 2011 Martinelli Road Chardonnay 96 points, at the recent North Coast Challenge, and the highly acclaimned Sheldon Anderson Valley, 2011 Roma's Vineyard Pinot Noir, 94 points by Virginie Boone of Wine Enthusiast.
We will also be featuring a oysters, chocolatier, local artist, and a Bocce Tournament. Read below for full details, it's a not to be missed party!
The wineries have decided to truly celebrate to waive entry fees and make the event free! We'd greatly appreciate RVSPs as it helps with planning. RVSP at http://julyreleasebash.eventbrite.com/
The event is from 2-7 p.m. at Sheldon Winery, 1301 Cleveland Ave, Santa Rosa.
Your ticket includes a taste of the 6 releases from the 3 wineries. Normal tasting fees applie to full lineup of each winery.
Wine will also be available by the glass to consume with your game of Bocce, BBQ, Oysters etc!

While supplies last, Dylan will be shucking oysters to pair!
Food with Wine, Of Course!
The boys will be grilling a pork shoulder and smoked beans will be available. Wine will be available by the glass, so after your tasting of the 6 releases, grab a glass of something tasting, and enjoy the summer bash!
Interact & Socialize With the Wineries & Wine Makers
Too often we end up behind the table the entire event, filling glasses and have 30 second engagements. This time we have vowed to try and stay away from that, and out with our friends and supporters, socializing, answering questions, and having fun, while our talented teams fill your glass!
While you sip wine, check out these other cool Sonoma wares:
- Photography of Damon Mattson: Damon Mattson has been a photographer for more than 20 years and is a Sonoma County ARTrails artist. Damon attempts to create photographs that are so realistic that you feel as though you are standing in front of the actual place. t
- Bert's Desserts – Wine truffles and more! Syrah, a Petite Sirah and a Viognier truffle, as well as Chocolate and Raspberry Truffles, and Peanut Butter Cups. Bert's was a big hit at our last event, come see why!
There is a Bocce' court in the back, we'll be hosting a tournament! Bring a team, or form one on the spot.
