We're heading back to Lido this month for their popular Thursday Wine Tastings – the last Thursday wine tasting for this year! Each week there is a different varietal of wines to taste with appetizers to enjoy. Tonight, representatives from Patz & Hall Winery in Napa Valley will be at Lido presenting a great selection of wines. Patz and Hall Wine Company was founded in 1988 by Donald Patz, James Hall, Anne Moses and Heather Patz, and is dedicated to the production of hand-crafted wines. The four are long-time Napa Valley residents and wine industry professionals, with a wide variety of experiences. Patz and Hall’s key varietals are Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from selected vineyard sources in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Monterey counties. The Patz and Hall method is to work closely with each of their growers to achieve a unique expression of the vineyard site and deliver wines that reflect both the site and their vision for great wine. Their celebrated portfolio of award winning wines includes accolades from the Wine Spectator and Wine Advocate publications. More information can be found at http://www.patzhall.com .
There will be 5 or 6 wines for the tasting – I will provide an update on the wines to be poured 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 15%. Their wine tastings are very popular. The wine tasting takes place in Lido’s enclosed patio. There will be heaters. Bring a sweater or jacket just in case. It should a fun evening
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 7:00 PM to be able to enjoy the wines & complementary appetizers.
