Arroyo Grande, CA (PRWEB) May 10, 2011
Wine Maker Wednesday is a fun tradition at Gather Wine Bar in Arroyo Grande, CA. Each week, a California Central Coast wine maker shows off three of their wines. Once a year, the wine bar transformed into a party celebrating 5 women wine makers and sharing the fruits of their labor with fans in Arroyo Grande. This year has an added pleasure of presenting the first ever "Wine Diva Award" celebrating the contribution of women in the wine industry to Lane Tanner, of Lane Tanner Wines.
Participating wine makers hail from wineries from Santa Barbara to Paso Robles including Morgan Clendenen from Cold Heaven Cellars known for her amazing Viogniers and delicious Syrahs. Sonja Magdevski from Casa Dumetz Wines, co-wine maker with actor Emilio Estevez will be showing off her current vintages of the wines she created from the duo's effort. Amanda Cramer from Niner Wines will be bringing her take on some of Paso's most approachable wines. Janell Dusi from JDusi Wines will be bringing some samples of the big yummy wines she is known for and Kelley Brophy-Clark from Brophy-Clark Cellars will be showing off her Santa Maria Pinot Noir and Rhone Blends for all to enjoy.
"Each year it gets more and more fun, finding new wine makers to participate in this event" says Kari Ziegler, owner of Gather. "And this year is even more exciting, because in addition to the five amazing wine makers and their delicious wines, we are showing off Gather-made food by Chef Tim Flickwir and giving away the first 'Wine Diva' award to an amazing wine maker, Lane Tanner", said Ziegler.
The event is being held on May 18th, 2011 from 5:30 to 8:30pm. Tickets are available for $45 per person online from the Gather Wine Bar website, http://www.gatherwinebar.com or by calling the wine bar at 805-474-4771.
