Redmon Wines in partnership with The City Club of San Francisco are pleased to welcome you to a Spring Vintner's wine tasting, featuring our wines along with three premium boutique wineries from Napa Valley. This is a wonderful opportunity to relax and sip current releases from Redmon, as well as discover new favorites from the other dedicated vintners who will also be on hand.
Redmon Wines, Delectus, Knight's Bridge and Chase Cellars are the four vintners who will be presenting wines this evening. The City Club's Chef Michael Munoz will be delighting your taste buds with tasty hors d'ouevres, and the beautiful ambiance of the Art Deco City Club lends itself to mixing & mingling as you work your way through the walk-around tasting.
The cost is only $25 per person if you register before March 1st and $35 afterwards. Tickets are limited to the first 75 at this exclusive event being held at one of San Francisco’s most coveted venues.

Scott and I had the chance to host a great event for one of our customers in New York City this past weekend. We arrived in New York right at the tail end of the horrible winter weather and joined the group in Midtown.
We worked with an amazing New York based company to pair cheeses with our three wines. We paired a Sainte Maure goat cheese from the Loire River area of France with our 2008 Chardonnay, a French cow's milk Morbier with the 2007 Estate Cabernet and then a hard cheese called Sbinz from Switzerland with a barrel sample of the Cabernet Blend. All were paired perfectly.
Artisnal did a great job and we plan to work with them in the future as they are able to pack and ship cheeses directly to our customers. Check them out at www.artisnalcheese.com.
Redmon Wines is very happy to announce that this week Wine Enthusiast announced that our Cabernet ranked number 30 in their Top 100 Wines, Editors Choice, for 2010, described below:
"Each year, Wine Enthusiast’s wine tasting panel samples thousands of current releases in every style and at every price point imaginable. Striving to discover the best and most attractively priced selections, we review hundreds of wines of interest to our readers. But those chosen for The Enthusiast 100 go beyond just interest: These wines are truly exemplary, often represent the very best of their category, and should not be missed."
Wine Enthusiast Best of the Year 2010
This information is posted on the Wine Enthusiast's website below and will also be listed in their December 31, 2010 issue.
We had the opportunity to participate in a Charity Event at Ronald McDonald House in San Diego recently. We brought four other Napa Valley small wine producers to pour wines for clients of UBS Financial. All proceeds from the event went to support the children in the hospital at this location.
We poured our 2007 Cabernet and 2008 Chardonnay and both were a big hit. The Cabernet paired wonderfully with an Olive Stuffed Prime Rib Roast on Brasserie Potatoes prepared byAlex at the Stone Brewing Company.

While mother nature has been unusually unpredictable this year, we are excited about the ripeness and flavor profile of this year’s grapes. We had a long stretch of cool weather this summer that resulted in a late harvest. The sugars remained below 24 BRIX until the last day or two when they very quickly reached 25 BRIX.
Unlike past years, we had only a day notice that the fruit was ready to pick and had to have our crew out quickly. We usually invite customers out to participate, but we are sorry to announce that we were unable to do this because of the urgency of events. We’ll look forward to next year and sharing the 2010 wines with you.
We had great fun with a club member and thier group of friends Friday night in Huntington Beach. We were able to show our 2008 Cabernet Blend which will release in February and it was very well received.
Everyone got a Redmon apron and it was fun to be able to bring a little of the Napa Valley to Southern California.
We recently discovered a great, local car service that we wanted to make our customers aware of. The company is called Designated Driver and they provide a service where they will schedule a driver for your own car to take you around the valley wine tasting, etc. It’s a convenient and economical way to be escorted for the day.
Ona and Dan are the owners and are really great folks to work with. The key is their knowledge of the valley and the special insurance they carry to be able to drive your car. Check them out at www.designateddrivernapa.com
We are pleased to announce that R&R Wine Marketing is representing Redmon Wines in the San Diego Market. R&R is headed by Rob Ruibon and their team of 5 salespeople is working hard to introduce our wine to some great new restaurants and retailers.
