For our inaugural wine.coop event we are featuring the extraordinary new releases, library gems, and barrel samples presented at an open house by Harrington winery located in San Francisco's India Basin south of Dogpatch just off of 3rd St., three blocks from a light rail station.
The tasting fee is being waived for Meetup/wine.coop members who will also receive a special 25% discount off with the discount potentially going even lower--"prices drop as more members shop".
The focus of this open house event will be on recently bottled 2012 white wines. Mr. Harrington will be pouring the following wines along with light appetizers.
Fiano Luna Matta Vineyard, Paso Robles, 2 wines, sulfite and no-sulfite
Fiano Fratelli Vineyard, Santa Clara Valley
Chardonnay Bald Mountain Vineyard, Santa Cruz Mountains

MORE ABOUT THE NEW WHITE WINES
Two 2012 Fianos hail from the organically-farmed Luna Matta Vineyard in Paso Robles; the Terrane version – as always – is bottled without sulfites. Remarkably different wines. Come compare and contrast.
A third '12 Fiano sourced from the Fratelli Vineyard will also be offered. This is the same vineyard source as the 2011 Fiano which roused a bit of a fan base last summer. A rich wine with clear aging potential.
White Burgundy fans will appreciate the new 2012 Chardonnay from Bald Mountain Vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The vineyard is situated on a rare limestone outcrop and the effect of the white stony soil is evident in the crisp, lively flavors of this no-oak Chardonnay.
Besides being a source for Fiano, the Fratelli Vineyard has also become one of Bryan's favorite vineyards for “oddities” like Teroldego and Charbono, so he went all-in on a Muscat Canelli as well. A wine with spicy, seductive aromatics, Muscat is one of the oldest and most exotic of the cultivated grapevines. With such beguiling perfume, it is easy to understand why this grape has been around so long.

Kurt Nystrom, Executive Director of the Old Mint discusses the features of the building
Rating wines on April 20th at the Pickwick Hotel and the 27th at 54 Mint restaurant
This historic building, which opened in 1874, was turned over to the City by the U.S. Treasury in 2003 and used only sporadically for private events and the occasional exhibit, while it tries to raise funds to turn it into a city history museum. See the wonderful photos of the mint down through time on the Museum homepage
The exhibit was entitled San Francisco Style, showcasing the styles and fashions of San Francisco from the 1850s to the 1970s. Fashion is the ultimate artistic expression of individual style, and San Francisco has had an influence on the way people dress dating back to the 19th century.
This was a rare chance to view the interior while enjoying an enticing exhibition. Afterward, we crossed the street to the Bogart Room in the Pickwick Hotel to rate and rank green/ natural/ sustainable/ organic wines with an array of munchies. The following weekend we accommodated those who were prevented from attending on the 20th due to limited capacity. Our hosts, the owners of the Roman restaurante 54 Mint, provided excellent appetizers to complement the white and red wines.
Because of the linkage to the Old Mint, and in keeping with Earth Day, we featured limited production, ecofriendly wines from the Gold Country (we also gave away a bottle of organic wine produced by the Frey family in Mendocino). Wines are being considered an candidates for inclusion in the wine.coop store.
Our monthly multi meetup mingles ("Winegles") seek to offer occasions for people to socialize over new and different wine styles and flavors. Why nurse a glass of a single varietal or be limited to a flight of three at a high markup wine bar like Press or W, when for the same amount of money you can savor and learn about a range of wines.
Our unique approach is based on the premise that certain special wines have an appeal to many types of personal paletes which too often rarely please the refined tastes of the wine pros. We want to offer attendees--who represent a cross section of those who buy wine for dinner--the opportunity to decide on their choices.
We broke this tasting down into four flights, we sampled a variety of wines from microwineries sourced mostly from grapes grown near Auburn, Grass Valley and Nevada City. As the results show below, members and guests were quite pleased with the quality and value of the vino. These wines deserve wider exposure At least our members and their guests now know that there is more to the Sierra Foothills than El Dorado, Amador and Calaveras counties. We were glad to make the introduction to these lesser known wines, which are being considered as candidates for inclusion in the wine.coop online club.
The prices attached to each of the medal winning wines are winery retail. More information with links on each winery listed below and each county AVA can be found at::

For many wine enthusiasts, the start of the year is associated with a major tasting of Zinfandels. Now Cabernet fans can indulge their passion after the start of the new year in one of the most dramatic settings in the Bay Area - The Winery SF on Treasure Island. And enjoy the experience of this fundraiser without the crowd crush of the mega tastings or Passport weekends.
Over a number of weeks in the fall, Affairs of the Vine convened a select panel of 41 wine makers, writers, retailers, educators, and consultants to judge the 7th Cabernet Shootout among mostly limited production family owned Cabernets, Cabernet Francs and Cabernet blends from over 50 different appellations. Without regard to price, vintage or region, this group of experts moved 64 wines to the final round selecting 32 "best of the best."
These finalists were then evaluated in a blind tasting by wine lovers attending the Bay Area Wine Society sponsored Cabernet Shootout Challenge
Starting at 1:30 pm, each Cab lover selected their favorites in one of two flights of 17 and 18 Cabs containing five of the top 10 wines chosen by the panelists.
In this Pro/Am competition, the results of the professionals' Cab Shootout were compared to the tally of the amateurs' Cab Challenge, both tabulated by gender.
This distinctly different format provides a unique opportunity to compare your taste preferences to those of the 'experts' in the wine industry. It also allows participants to sample other than the usual suspects and rate rising star wineries
During the afternoon, attendees were also able to mingle and meet with many of the vintners from the wineries that participated in the Cabernet Shootout in an open walk around tasting accompanied by various nibbles.from such notable vendors as Fabrique Délices.and the Vineburg Deli in Sonoma.Attendees could meet Vintners from such artisanal stalwarts as Cass, Cuda Ridge, Vigilance, Rocca Family, HeartSmart, Muscardini, Fernwood, Peju, Rodney Strong, Signorello, Petroni, Field Stone, Shannon Ridge, and last year's SF Chronicle Best Red, McGrail.
In addition,starting at noon the Cabernet Shootout Challenge offered two concurrent VIP panel sessions of winemakers who explored how this noble varietal is influenced by the terroir of different grape growing areas. One session focused on the distinctive features of representative Old World Bordeaux Cabs vs some of California's New World versions discussed by winemakers from Sol Rouge, Rahn Estate, EnGarde, and Auburn James.The other workshop examined how the viticultural characteristics of several regions in the state differ and guide winemaking decisions. Winemakers from Eberle (Paso Robles), J Pilar (Murrieta, South Coast AVA), Deerfield Ranch (Kenwood, Sonoma Valley), and Rodrigue Molyneaux(Livermore).
We also raffled off bottles of Cab from the participating wineries to raise funds for One Brick that assists charities with temporary manpower needs. And since 26 wineries poured in the walk around tasting, and no more than 280 tickets were sold, the odds were quite good that one could walk away with a special bottle of vino.
Thanks to Barbara Drady, Chief Wine Evangelist of Affairs of the Vine, for putting this unique event together and to Katherine Bernitt who expertly sourced, prepared, presented, and orchestrated the volunteers who assembled the munchies and kept the beautifully decorated food table stocked. John Lyle did his usual efficient and friendly job of checking in attendees. And to the One Brick Volunteers for all their assistance including set up and break down. Terrific teamwork all around.

First Place (with twice as many votes as the 2nd place wine):
AuburnJames 2009 Bella Vista Blocks 1&4 Cab Sauvignon, Napa Valley $75
230 cases produced
Professional judging panel: There is a prevalent earthiness on the brooding nose of dried fruit. Mushroom and cassis flavors on entry with coffee notes adding further dimension. The acidity of this wine rocks! The tannic backbone and dusty fruit are in total balance with the whole. Exciting and intense aromas emanate from the glass. The well balanced palate shows black cherry and black currant flavors with a lovely spice accent. A definite sense of place, no doubt...Napa Valley.
Second Place (tie)
: The Winery SF 2008 Beatty Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley /Howell Mtn $150 /
100 cases produced
Professional judging panel: A serious quiet fireside wine with tangy red cherry, anise, soft cocoa, and soy aromas that replicate on the palate. Evolves in deeper versions through the long finish. Engaging black fruit aromatics. Gorgeous mid-palate of fruit and spice with supple sexy tannins.
Muscardini Cellars Madrone Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma Valley $39
217 cases produced
Professional judging panel: The red fruit nose has dried herbs and some dustiness. Blackberry with smoky notes throughout. Inky, blue/black in color. Nose of soft red fruit and cassis. Front palate of cherry and earth, mid moves to cassis and leather. The long finish shows cassis and red fruit. "I'll definitely buy this."
3rd Place (and Best Value)
: Ghost Pines (Louis Martini) 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa/Sonoma/Lake Counties $23--though it can be found in retail outlets for as low as $16 at places like The Wine Club.
129,100 cases made!
Professional judging panel: Black plums, soy, coffee, and bitter chocolate show on the reserved and pleasant nose. The fruit is accented with coffee, earth and integrated wood notes. Nice finish. Not an overly aggressive style. Baked dark fruit - plum, raisin - and spice on the nose. Nice chalky mouthfeel. Lots of ripe fruit with attractive spice mid to late.

Our monthly wine mingles seek to offer occasions for members and guests to socialize over new and different wine styles and flavors. Why nurse a glass of a single varietal with some cheese and crackers, or be limited to a flight of three wines at a high mark up wine bar when for the same amount of money you can enjoy and learn about a range of wines with fine cuisine?.
This month we celebrated the stupendous achievements of the Giants during October leading up to the sweep of the World Series.We featured new releases from urban wineries within 210 miles of
PacBell AT&T Park.
The wines were matched with a grazing meal taken from the innovative and tasty menu of a hot new bistro, Split Bread restaurant located in the Metreon, another downtown facility, which we visited in September but which some members couldn't attend.
We rated and ranked the various releases. Our unique approach is based on the premise that certain special wines appeal to a broad range of different palates but which rarely please the refined tastes of the wine pros. We want to offer attendees--who represent a cross section of regular wine drinkers who buy wine to have with their dinner--the opportunity to decide on their preferences not the "gatekeepers."

It's way past due that we gathered on the other side of the Bay . We sampled delicious Asian Fusion dishes at Le Cheval, paired with white and red varietals from urban wineries running from Berkeley to Oakland and Alameda.. We showcased 11 different varietals from the East Bay Urban Vintners association curated by El Presidente. As usual rated and ranked the wines.
As with other venues we select, the restaurant is less than two blocks from a BART station and near a parking structure.
To attend required advance payment so the food and wine pairings could be properly planned. We SOLD OUT. cost: $21.50 all inclusive (tax and service). Refunds were given up to Tuesday, Oct. 23rd.
Le Cheval, located in Old Oakland, introduced new Asian flavors into America, particularly Vietnamese cuisine. This style incorporates the French, Chinese and Southeast Asian cooking concepts of preparing wholesome, nutritious and special dishes that emphasize quality with quantity. Fresh vegetables, nuts and spices are all essential ingredients to preserve this tradition of cooking. Everyone knows that the secret to healthy living is good nutrition and a balanced diet. So it’s no coincidence that a combination of any of these will be found in almost every dish. Le Cheval is proud to continue that tradition and is dedicated to maintaining the harmony between mind and body through healthy eating.
The favorite wines will be available for sale to raise funds for your preferred charity which could be yourselves. The approach is described at pairings-sf.com .
The wines were well received, though no home runs to stay in season. The Urban Legend Riesling "won" as favorite of the evening if we take out the scores of those 'judges' who don't like the fruitiness of the wine irrespective of how well it goes with Asian food.
Also the JC Cellars presents an interesting situation. Jeff Cohen makes a superb Marsanne, however..... I would opine while the pros like it, and it goes well with food, consumers are less enamored of its taste profile. It's a difficult sell, particularly at $38. And this shows in the response across the board, and why I prefer to get the reactions from the people who buy the wine not the "gatekeepers".
The five star system was converted to the 100 pt. system which can be done when there are multiple scores. The second score represents the 'favorite factor' when 1.5 scores are eliminated, I translate this score to mean the person doesn't like a style of wine and would not buy it. Also the two members who are going for their CWE credentials tend to mark lower and don't represent the middle of the bell curve consumer.
We asked participants to rank as well as rate. There was a departure here. Stage Left was the clear winner when ranking.
RATING AND RANKING IS BASED ON HOW MUCH THE DINERS ENJOYED THE WINES WITH THE MENU~The number in parenthesis represents the order tasted. Prices are winery retail. The wines can often be found for less in stores.
Our monthly wine gatherings, paired with distinctive experiences, seek to offer occasions for Meetup groups to socialize over a new and different range of wine styles and flavors. We taste a variety of wines for the cost of a glass or flight of three wines at a high mark-up wine bar. AND THE TASTINGS ARE ALWAYS CLOSE TO BART WITH PARKING ALSO NEAR THE VENUE.
2:30 - 3:30 The Smithsonian Magazine, as part of its national Free Museum Day program, sponsored admission to the 75th Anniversary exhibit on the designing and building of the Golden Gate Bridge at the California Historical Society.
3:45-5:00 p.m. Sampling of boutique wines offered by the new kid on the block, Naked Wines which supports winemakers by inviting wine drinkers to become investment angels at $40/month. We conducted our September taste-off at a new restaurant inside the Metreon -Split Bread. Terrific nibbles to go with the wines.
This much talked-about resto offered hot spit roasted meats, fresh artisan baked breads, locally sourced produce for salads, house made pickles and spreads, and truly remarkable sandwiches. A deli it ain't (more like a sandwich bistro). They laid out a showcase spread costing much more than we we paid
Find out more about Split Bread here:
Yelp's live-in-primetime photos: http://www.flickr.com/photos/yelp/sets/7215763153764549
And the wines--presented by Naked Wines: The clear standout was the more expensive Napa Cab crafted by noted local winemaker, Ken Deis. All the wines--named mostly after the winemaker who crafted them--appealed, with even the lower scoring William Henry Sauvignon Blanc made from Mendocino grapes receiving a "Satisfactory." The South African Cab also scored well at half the price of the Deis. Ditto the Tempranillo from Spain.
If you put in your $40 "angel" investment each month you can purchase most of the wines at half price, wines that are not available anywhere else. The wines are already priced very reasonably so you stand to quickly make back your investment while supporting rising winemakers and scooping up varietals at super low prices.
