SATURDAY WINE TASTINGS - Local Winery Series - Featuring LONG MEADOW RANCH

Saturday, June 22nd \ 1:00PM TO 4:00PM

Long Meadow Ranch is a collection of five properties: three in Napa Valley, one in Anderson Valley, one in West Marin. In 1989 the Hall family carefully breathed life back into this great property in Napa, nurturing it back to its glory. Home to the Mayacamas Estate, the rugged 650-acre landscape nestled in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains also gave way to a long, sweeping meadow, thus the name Long Meadow Ranch was born.

They make high quality whites, rosés and reds. We particularly love their Napa Cabernet and are currently pouring it by the glass at CRU.

On Saturday we will be pouring 5 of their wines for $16 a person.

The tasting will feature:

  • 2018 LMR Rose of Pinot Noir Anderson Valley

  • 2017 LMR Farmstead Chardonnay Napa Valley

  • 2014 LMR Merlot Napa Valley
