Date/Time: Friday Nov 19 4 - 5pm PST
Elissa from WineSkipping here (also a Googler). If you're interested in just the 2 Neely wines, buy direct from Neely. But for those interested in the Gruner I'm offering this purchase page for you. As a retailer I can combine wines from different producers. You'll get the same discount from Neely ($75 vs $85 for the wines) and 10% off the Ottavino. I make zero profit and am offering this to Googlers as a service.
Shipping is unfortunately pricey through my site (appox $40 for 3 wines to NY and $25 on the west coast). I'm so sorry, I don't get volume discounts. But if you're local to Bay Area pickup is free from San Mateo, or I can drop off to you (within 15 miles of San Mateo) directly for just $10. Shipping and drop offs will be done in bulk close to the event. For local pickup instructions scroll to bottom.
Ok, now to the fun stuff!
Enjoy wine from 2 different labels in one tasting! Shalini Sekhar, winemaker for Waits-Mast is also winemaker to Neely and her own brand new label: OttaVino! This is our first chance to try wines from two different labels in one event! Join Shalini and Neely Winery representative, Lucy Neely, to hear about their small businesses and their wines. Both are boutique and hand crafted, you won't find these wines in any stores!
🍷 2020 Neely Rose of Pinot Noir: This is an intense rose with a long finish! Notes of strawberry, spice, white pepper, and oregano. I find it more intense, acidic and with more red fruit and spice than other roses. It would go great with Thanksgiving dinner.
🍷 2018 Neely Hidden Block Pinot Noir: This pinot noir, from the very same vineyard as the rose pinot (!) is spicy and intense with delightful essence of raspberry jolly rancher, but also some complexity with savory spice, plum, pepper, orange peel and something dark and brooding. I think you'll like this if you like bold pinots!
🍷 2019 OttaVino Gruner Veltliner: Have you ever had a Gruner Veltliner? You're in for a treat! This is a white wine most often associated with Austria. It is an acid driven wine with flavors of pear, lime and ginger with some herbal notes that might remind you of Sauvignon Blanc (without that grapefruit).
