We hope you’ll join us for this unique look at how Cartograph wines evolve from vineyard to glass.

If you've ever visited us during harvest, you know that Alan always has a small batch of something percolating on the bar. You might get a taste of Pinot juice from a sample that was taken in the vineyard that morning, or a fermentation that is just taking off at the winery. The reactions we get are almost always ones of surprise that what is in the glass will eventually become an amazingly complex and graceful wine.

When Alan started sugar sampling the grapes this past summer, he saved the juice samples and froze them. He has now created a new tasting experience called “Inside Pinot” that lets visitors sample along as he gives a verbal and visual tour of how Pinot Noir is made. We taste juice samples as well as current releases and library wines from Cartograph. 

$50 per person, $40 Circle members, RSVP required as seating is limited

Ah, the Perli Vineyard, nestled above the fog line in the remote mountains of the Mendocino Ridge. We've been working with Steve Alden, the owner and grower of Perli Vineyard since 2009.  This vineyard is truly stunning. Vineyards in this appellation are referred to as “islands in the sky” because of how the fog gathers and pools in the valleys beneath the vineyards. There are days where all you see are these ridge-top vineyards surrounded by pillowy white pools of fog. 

Join our winemaker, Alan Baker, in a tasting exploring the Perli Vineyard and tasting the 2009 - 2012 vintages. 

Tickets are $30, $20 for Circle members.  You can purchase tickets by calling the tasting room at 707.433.8270 or emailing info@cartographwines.com.  Seating is limited. Tickets are non-refundable.
