  • Salinas, CA (1888PressRelease) May 16, 2013 - Learn, Swirl, Sip and Enjoy! Meet the Winemakers and enjoy a four course dinner with wine paired to each course. During the series winemakers will discuss the history, culture and qualities of the featured wines which will accompany Executive Chef Matt Bolton's seasonal menus. The winemakers series brings guests closer to the producers and personalities that craft the wine we love. "We are very excited about our 2013 series," said Wine Director Paul Fried. "We believe making wine is, in essence, farming, and in step with our farm-to-table philosophy. Our wine dinner series brings the farmers' passion for quality and natural goods to our guests."

    The Final 2013 Winemakers Dinner For 2013 is An Evening of Sheldon Wines with Dylan & Toby Sheldon. Sheldon Wines prefer using a minimalist approach to wine-making, they like to call it "State of the Art circa 1900 technology". They closely monitor the development of ripening grapes by using the very best tools for the job, their noses and palates, rather than relying on lab equipment. After harvesting and sorting clusters by hand, fermentation goes along slowly and naturally in small open top fermenters. Punch downs of the fermenting grapes are done by hand many times a day. We gently press using a basket press. The new wine is aged in primarily neutral French Oak to rest and mature allowing the flavors of the vineyard and vines to take center stage, rather than the inside of a toasted new barrel. The wines are gravity racked according to lunar cycles, until being sent to bottle unfiltered and unfined.
