For the last several years, we've been very fortunate to have Ben & Yolanda Papapietro visit The Wine Room for an event. For those of you who have attended any of these events, you know how passionate Ben is about winemaking, especially Pinot Noir.
We will have an assortment of his single-vineyard Pinot Noir, his delicious Russian River Chardonnay, and his rich, full-throttle Zinfandel.
We will also have Ben's newest addition, Pinot Noir "Rose", which is stunning.
The Papapietro-Perry Story
"From Garage to Greatness"
The story of Papapietro Perry Winery began in a garage with two friends, BenPapapietro and Bruce Perry, who were bitten by the winemaking bug. They started making wine, as both of their grandfathers had, for the enjoyment of their families and friends. Like their grandfathers, they were good at it. So good, in fact, that by the 1990s they decided to produce their garagista wines in commercial quantities, and Papapietro Perry Winery was born.
The name Papapietro Perry is frequently found in the most respected wine industry publications. Wine Spectator recently named it one of the top 20 Pinot Noir producers and honored it with the Critics' Choice Award.
From the Fromage Cave:
To enhance the enjoyment of these amazing wines, there will be a special selection of artisan cheeses, selected by Max McCalman. These cheeses will also be available to purchase.
In addition, there will be special "event night only" prices on the wines featured tonight!
