Flavor of Fall Wine-Tasting, Sat. (10/1), 1-3:30pm

Postby gthurner » Thu Sep 29, 2016 3:59 pm

From 1 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1, the Fresno State Winery will showcase several new vintages of its popular wines at the Flavor of Fall tasting event at the Department of Viticulture and Enology (2360 E. Barstow Ave.).

Tickets will be available at the event for $10 for Fresno State faculty, staff and students (21 and over) and wine club members, and $15 for the public. Parking is free in the adjacent Lot P20 on Barstow and Jackson avenues.

The event will feature four newly-released wines, including the 2015 Classic Chardonnay, 2015 Pinot Noir, 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2012 Saviez Syrah. Also available will be the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc that was introduced in August, the award-winning 2013 Merlot and other fall French varietals.

Those attending can also sample the Petrucci’s Crush wine blend that is named in honor of department founder Dr. Vincent E. Petrucci. The limited edition red wine was designed by University winemaker Matt Brain and Fresno State students and will be released later this year.

The family event will also include fun activities for children, including pumpkin carving, face painting and a bean bag toss.

Fresno State Wine Club members are invited to pick up their October shipments at the Flavor of Fall event.

Wine shipments will include Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Classic Chardonnay varieties. Participants can also participate in a blind taste test of four new barrel blends. The blend that receives the most votes will be bottled and produced for the wine club in 2017.

Wine club members can bring guests to the shipment pick-up, and the public can also participate if they join the wine club at the event. Membership is free and includes a minimum shipment of four bottles at each of its three annual deliveries. The cost is $45 to $55 each shipment.
