October introduces Mountain Wines! 

What exactly do we mean when we say, mountain wines? Well, exactly what that sounds like. We're talking about wines grown at altitude on the slopes of mountains, on terraces sometimes so steep that workers need to tie off in order to work the vineyard; or vines that have at various times been buried in ash from a volcanic eruption! These are so harsh that vines sometimes produce only a few grapes in a bunch; whose vines are so gnarled as to give the appearance of a arthritic hand thrusting upward from some buried being in the mountain. These higher zones are becoming more and more appreciated for their structure; their angularity, their elegance and majesty. Join us at both Upper and Lower Ferdinand in October where each Tuesday and Wednesday of the month, we will visit a different mountain zone and taste expressions of the rarified.

Visit Bar Ferdinand and taste some of the results! 

Join us each Tuesday and Wednesday, 5 to 7pm, at Lower Bar Ferdinand.
