We're heading back to Lido this month for their popular Thursday Wine Tastings. Each week there is a different varietal of wines to taste with appetizers to enjoy. Tonight, winemaker Elaine Villamin Blackaby with Eden Canyon Vineyards in the Paso Robles Appellation Valley will be at Lido presenting a great selection of wines.
Winemakers Elaine Villamin Blackaby & Danny Villamin have a small production, handcrafted wines produced with minimal intervention, reflecting their vineyard's full influence in the winemaking process. Their estate vineyard produces low yield and high-quality grapes that are crushed and de-stemmed within minutes of handpicking. They produce about 2,000 cases a year of consistent, balanced, low sulfite, and nature friendly wines. Their award winning wines include Bordeaux Style Red Wines, Estate Cabernet Sauvignons, Zinfandel & Petit Sirah blends, Zinfandels and Dessert Wines.
There will be 5 or 6 wines for the tasting – I will provide an update on the varietals for the tasting as the date gets closer - along with complimentary hot & cold appetizers for $15/person - cash or credit card. If you stay for dinner, Lido will give us a special discount of 20%. Their wine tastings are very popular.
There is plenty of free parking. I look forward to seeing you. I will be carrying the Meetup sign. The wine tasting is from 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM. You must arrive no later than 7:30 PM to be able to enjoy the wines & complementary appetizers.
