Tasting and Tour at Naked Wines in Kenwood

We attended the grand opening of the Naked Wines Tasting Lounge last fall and had a great time. I guess we left a good impression since the tasting room manager, Sarah Tenthorey, decided to join our group. She has now extended an offer to me that I couldn't refuse; free tasting, tour and even light appetizers. Way to go Sarah! Since this is a scheduled event, please show up on time, or even a bit early. Once the tour begins, it may be hard to find us. Here are the details she sent me:

Since you are bringing us great customers, I am happy to waive our tasting/tour fee. Additionally, we'll provide an assortment of cheese and crackers during the tasting. Here's the lovely little details:

Saturday, 16th of February 2013, at 3pm

Your confirmed reservation is for a party of 50-75 guests.

The NakedWines.com Wine Studio & Tasting Lounge is located at 8450 Sonoma Highway in the town of Kenwood.

- We are happy to accommodate any changes to your reservation and appreciate a forty-eight hours notice.

- We cannot accommodate anyone who is lessthan twenty-one years of age.

- Fury friends on leashes are welcome!

We should be done around 5:00. There are lots of great little restuarents near by that you could possibly try after the event. Just strike up conversations with your fellow SWIG's, form up your own groups and make it happen.

We look forward to seeing you all and having a great time.

Andy and Sarah

    It was enjoyable to see good friends again and meet new ones. I did manage to go inside to taste more of their wines. I liked the "Bear & Crown" Zinfandel, 2011, but then again I'm a Zin lover. Also good was the "Castillo Catadau" Gran Reserve, Spain, 2005.
    Thanks Andy for posting and please continue posting a hike prior, I like that idea.

    hi Andy, I was 1 of the 1st to sign up for this event & when I looked again I was no longer confirmed. What happened?

    February 14, 2013

    Hi SWIG's,
    For those of you who are looking for something fun to do before this event, check out the hike and picnic that I posted with the Sonoma County Wanderers group: http://www.meetup.com/Sonoma-County-Wanderers/events/104498862/
    It will be a fun and pretty easy hike with spring-like weather forecasted. You will need to sign up via the link above and if you aren't a Wanderer yet then you will need to join them (us?) first.
