We are so excited to be hosting the first ever Twomey Release Day today! Today marks the official celebration of our new Pinot Noir program. In 2007 we decided to begin producing appellation specific wines. Ben Cane, our newly hired Pinot winemaker, was tasked with finding the "best of the best". He search throughout Northern and Central California. Grapes were sourced from some of the most famous appellations and vineyards known for producing exceptional Pinot Noirs. Our end result was producing not only our traditional Russian River Pinot, sourced from our very own Westpin Vineyard, but also a limited quantity of Santa Baraba, Anderson Valley, and Sonoma Coast Pinot Noirs.
Today we will be releaseing each of these wines along with the 2007 Syrah and 2008 Sauvignon Blanc. Each of the wines will be paired with foods prepared by our Winery Chef. Everything is available to visitors for just $20 per person. We will also be tasting our 2005 Merlot.
We're a little disappointed by the rains which are promised for today, but we're still so excited about this very special event.
Hope you can come out an join us, I'll be at the Healdsburg winery all day.
