WINEMAKER EVENT FEATURING HANK MCCRORIE OF BURLY WINES Join us for a Free Winemaker Event featuring Hank McCrorie of Burly Wines at Taylor’s Wine Shop on September 28th, 6:30-8pm! Come meet Hank McCrorie, (one of our favorite Napa Valley winemakers) and taste his fantastic Burly wines! For those who may not know Hank McCrorie, here is a little bio on the winemaker: After a successful 40-year career in sales, Hank McCrorie (a Charlotte, North Carolina native) and wife Bernice (raised in Sonoma County, California) decided to build a retirement home in Napa Valley. While working in New York City, Hank developed a passion for elegant small production Napa Valley Cabernets, which subsequently created the desire to produce an outstanding wine himself. Shortly following, the opportunity presented itself to lease a vineyard of 9 ½ acres of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Simpkins’ Ranch in the Coombsville AVA. Seizing the moment, Hank and Bernice set upon hand-crafting their signature offering at a small boutique winery where they were introduced to 4th generation winemaker, Massimo Monticelli, and renowned vineyard manager, Michael Wolf, whose collective mastery of the craft helped bring BURLY to life in...

RIEDEL STEMWARE SEMINAR JUNE 20

RIEDEL STEMWARE SEMINAR JUNE 20

Riedel Stemware Seminar June 20th, 6:30pm at Taylor’s Wine Shop Seating is Limited for this event. $55 per person (Take Home $60 worth of glassware) BUY TICKETS HERE! Ever wonder why some people make such a big deal about their wine glasses? Here’s your chance to see for yourself how big of a difference the wine glass can make in your taste and perception of the wine. Glassware and crystal makers since the mid-1700’s, the Riedel Stemware Company was the first one to demonstrate the size and shape of a wine glass can greatly alter how the wine tastes and is perceived. In the 1950’s Claus Riedel (pronounced like needle but with an “r”) introduced the first wineglasses designed specifically for certain wine varietals. Over the decades since, Riedel has introduced a number of “Varietal Specific” wine glasses and proven to just about everyone that the proper glass can enhance the enjoyment of your wine. We’ll be tasting 5 wines from their proper Riedel glass against the same wine from a non-Riedel “joker” glass and we’ll begin the night with a little sparkling wine. At the end of the night we guarantee that you’ll be amazed how much the glass influences the way your wines tastes AND you’ll get to take your 5 glasses home with you – 1 Sparkling, 1 Chardonnay, 1 Sauvignon Blanc, 1 Cabernet, & 1 Pinot Noir...
