Au Bon Climat-Verdad-Lindquist Family
End of Era Winery Open House (the last?)
11:00 AM-3:00 PM
Extensive Wine Tasting - Over 60 wines - Meet the Winemakers - Hot Luncheon - Vineyard Venue
This is the ultimate wine experience. Come on out to the winery located amidst acres of vines for a wine event like no other. Usually closed to the public, for the past 37 years we have opened the winery doors twice a year to the public, once in spring and once in the fall, and featured all winery partners. But times they are a changing. This will be our LAST open house open to the general public. We are looking to develop more intimate events particularly for our wine club members. Also, ABC's long time partner at the winery Qupé Wine Cellars was sold earlier this year and is moving to another location. For this event Bob Lindquist will be showcasing Qupé library wines - last call to get these beauties! So this is going to be an extra special occasion! Over 60 wines - library, hard-to-find, private labels, current releases - are available for tasting and purchase at great prices. Labels include Au Bon Climat, Clendenen Family, Ici/La Bas, Vita Nova, Barham Mendelsohn, Qupé, Verdad and many more. Plus you never know when a coveted, large format bottle will be uncorked!
A hot luncheon and commemorative wine glass is included in the price. At $25 per person, it is the best value around. Free for ABC or Verdad/Lindquist Family wine club members (2 per membership). Wine club members may enter early at 10:30 AM, 30 minutes before the general public, and have first opportunity at library wines and the Bargain Table -- limited quantity wines that are offered at rock bottom prices. No reservations are necessary. Winery located at 4665 Santa Maria Mesa Road, Santa Maria. PLEASE DO NOT bring your dog unless it is a service dog!
