GSM Blending Trials, Geyserville, CA – February 18, 2023 – Wine geeks unite. After a 2 year hiatus, in-person blending trials are back on the schedule.

Barrel Tasting, Healdsburg, CA – Saturday and Sunday March 4th and 5th, 2023 – You’re invited to our private barrel tasting event on March 4th and 5th.  This year it will be held at our estate vineyard, Crazy Run Ranch, in Windsor.  We have appointments available every hour starting at 11am until 3pm.  RSVP to Steve or Brian with how many in your party and what time you’d like to visit.  There is no cost to attend this event.

Virtual GSM Blending Trials – Let’s go winemaker wannabes.  Here is a chance to master your GSM blending skills from your own living room.  We will be hosting two virtual blending parties on Zoom:

  • March 11th @ Noon PST – SOLD OUT 
  • April 15th @ 3pm PST – 4 kits remaining
  • May ? – we may add another date if demand exists

Participants will receive a kit containing almost everything you’ll need to spend an hour or two dialing in the blend that pleases your palate most.  Each kit will serve 2 (maybe 3) participants, so team up and make it a party.

The kits will ship ASAP (weather permitting). We expect each party to last 1.5 – 2 hours and space is limited. Cost per kit is $175 plus tax and shipping.

In addition to the blending ingredients, each kit includes one (1) 750ml bottle of your preferred GSM blend. We will prepare your custom blended bottle after the event, based on your specification. Shipping that bottle to you is extra and can be combined with a wine purchase (or not).  Additional custom bottles may be available for purchase if we have the juice to spare.

Winemaker’s Lunch, Healdsburg, CA – Saturday, May 6, 2023 – Thanks to the pandemic, we’ve been hosting our spring release party at Valette Healdsburg since 2021.

Harvest Lunch, Healdsburg, CA – Saturday, October 7, 2023 – We are excited for our seventh annual Harvest Lunch at Valette Healdsburg. We will have the restaurant to ourselves for the whole afternoon.
