Firestone Vineyard Wine Lab Sunday – “A Toast to Oak”

Book now

Join us for the first in a series of fun and informative monthly wine gatherings where we explore wines of the Foley Food & Wine Society. We will feature three partner wineries from across California and beyond, taking a deep dive into the wines and common themes among them.

On Sunday, November 13th, Sommelier Billie Rolla will lead a group of wine enthusiasts in “A Toast to Oak”, that includes hands-on experiments, small group conversation, and of course wine tasting!

“A Toast to Oak” explores the world of oak, and whether you love it or hate it, oak plays a major role in the aromas and flavors of many wines, especially fine wines. We may sometimes find ourselves feeling stumped about the different types of oak, the different flavors, and what tasting notes mean by 30% new oak. Fear not, because we will get to the root of all these questions, toast your own oak samples, smoke infuse some juice, and discover hidden flavors as we taste through wines with different oak treatments.

Wine Lab Sundays include TWO (2) seats at the table, so bring a friend, a loved one, or just yourself and meet other fun wine enthusiasts. Absolutely no previous wine knowledge is necessary!

This experience includes one bottle each of the following wines for guests to take home:
2019 Ferrari-Carano Tré Terre Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County
2017 Chateau St. Jean Merlot, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County
2018 Silverado Borreo Ranch Zinfandel, Napa Valley

Duration: 1:30 hour experience

Reservation is for parties of 2.
Firestone Cellar Club and FFW Members: $160 per 2 guests
General Public – $200 per 2 guests
