Natural Wine Launch Paired with Vegan Meats
February 4 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm$20.00
This is the official launch weekend of Great Bear Vineyard’s natural wine, “Black Bicycle Farm’s Carbo Cab”! Your ticket includes:
1. Taste of 3 wines: our natural wine as well as two of our regular wines – a Chardonnay & a Red Blend
2. A glass of your preferred wine
3. A small sample of vegan meats from “Better Meat”
To make our natural wine “Black Bicycle Farm’s Carbo Cab”, the grapes were harvested from our vineyard in transition to organic production. The wine started fermenting with the wild yeasts naturally occurring on the grapes in the vineyard and a process of carbonic maceration of the whole grape clusters. The wine is unfiltered (so you will find a sediment in the bottle). This is a beautiful tart wine with flavors of candied strawberry and cherry.
We will also give you a taste of two of Great Bear Vineyards favorites: our Chardonnay and our Red Blend, The Duet. After the 3 wine tastes, we will pour you a full glass of your favorite wine. Note: Carbo Cab is vegetarian and Chardonnay & The Duet are vegan wines.
At this tasting, our Natural Wine will be paired with a sampler of vegan “Better Meat”. Vegan “Better Meat” is not meat at all; it is fermented mycoprotein made by Better Meat Company of Sacramento. It is made from rhiza – a whole food, complete protein ingredient that’s versatile, allergen-free, neutral in taste, has the texture of meat, and tastes like meat. Quite delicious!
This afternoon we are honored to have Katalysst join us to provide live music. Katalysst is a progressive folk rock duo that smoothly fuses both simplicity and complexity through thoughtful chord progressions and dynamic bass lines.
