This is a joint event again with Roberta's group. She's been hosting wine and food meetups on my group since 2008 and I'm so happy that she's founded her own group called "Wine Noir" to share her expertise and knowledge and introduce us to her world of wine after wine after wine! lol
You know she also writes on Examiner.com:
I know it's a bit confusing, but since she has hew own group, you can RSVP there if you've become a member of her group as well. If not, you can still RSVP here as a member of my group, and make a payment by Paypal which will be distributed to her.
PLEASE DO NOT RSVP TWICE ON BOTH GROUPS TO AVOID DUPLICATES AND CONFUSION. IT HELP US KEEP ACCURATE HEADCOUNT WITH PAYMENT. Thank you for your cooperation.

Dan Glover's winery, L'Objet Noir, was born from a passion for French Burgundies that developed during his career as an LA music writer and producer. When he realized he couldn't afford to drink these revered and expensive wines every day, he decided to make them!
After relocating to Healdsburg, California, Dan honed his winemaking chops at Clos du Bois, Armida and Dutcher Crossing. His first solo vintage was in 2008, dedicated to his muse: Pinot Noir. Dan is committed to making wines that are meant to go with food versus what he calls, "getting drunk" wines. He uses minimal intervention winemaking techniques, such as relying on native yeast fermentation and limiting new oak for aging. He sources his grapes from vineyards that are as close to organic and sustainable as possible.
Dan revels in the bliss of what the right wine paired with the right food can evoke in all the senses, especially when it's shared in just the right company. For him, that's what it's all about!
For this meetup, we will have four wines.
Dan will pour L'Objet Noir:
2010 Pinot Noir, Bacigalupi Vineyard, Russian River
2009 Pinot Noir Reserve Cuveé: Anderson Valley, Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast
and Santa Maria Valley
I will also be pouring two mystery whites made by another AA winemaker.
Dan is generously offering his wines at a 10% discount the day of the event.
