The June event began with The VIP Experience: Rosé Without Cliché. Idlewild Wines’ Thomas DeBiase led a panel presentation of iconic winemakers and chef Marc-Henri. Pouring was Jeff Runquist (Jeff Runquist Wines), Rick Moshin (Moshin Vineyards) and Rick Davis (Calstar Cellars).
The Grand Curated Pairing brought 26 gold-and-above wineries pairing with gourmet bites provided by Melissa Yanc (Quail & Condor), Brian Back (Way Station, Fairfax), Itamar Abramovitch (Blossom Catering, Napa) and Chef Marc-Henri Jean-Baptiste (Maison Porcella).
Soda Rock is the original site of the Alexander Valley general store and post office, and was once the central hub of activity for the valley. Historic records provide evidence of the first bonded winery on this property in 1880. Many locals remember Soda Rock Winery from the 1980s, when the Tomka family temporarily revived the old site.
