Jul 08, 2015 , Revolution Wines, with Craig Haarmeyer

4:30-7:30pm

No reservations necessary.

 

Please join us Wednesday, July 8th any time between 4:30-7:30 pm, when we welcome, Craig Haarmeyer of Revolution Wines, to our wine bar. Craig is the head winemaker for this exciting winery located in mid-town Sacramento and will present a flight of crisp Sacramento whites from Revolution and two Sierra Foothills reds from his St. Rey line of wines.

 

Craig was raised with a love of food and wine as his parents were restaurateurs in Sacramento and even built the first wine tasting room in our state’s capitol. His trajectory into winemaking was the classic story – get a Masters of Fine Arts degree, have a successful Tech career – and then realize all he really wanted to do was make great wine! After working several harvests in Sacramento Valley, he was hired as the assistant winemaker for Revolution and quickly assumed the head honcho job three years after the winery’s opening in 2008. Much like the “farm-to-table” philosophy for restaurants, Craig espouses a “vineyard-to-table” approach believing the winemaker should interfere as little as possible to allow the terroir to shine in the wines. To him the expression of place is all important and he thinks the vineyards in and around Sacramento “are more than worthy of being expressed.” He prefers his fruit to be picked at lower sugar levels, uses native yeasts whenever possible, ferments in stainless steel and neutral oak barrels and often allows oxygen and extended skin contact in his whites to make more complex, age-worthy and food-friendly wines.

 

Craig is a cool, down-to-earth guy who is excited to show us “Sacramento terroir” and enlighten us about the up and coming wine regions of Yolo and El Dorado Counties.
