Wine Wednesday - A Successful (and Delicious) Inaugural Event

Looking Back at a Special Wine Tasting Event Hosted by Kevin Buckler and Garrett Martin

Adobe Road Winery debuted our Wine Wednesday series of distinctive events on January 24 with a special vintners’ wine tasting and food pairing hosted by founder and CEO Kevin Buckler and winemaker Garrett Martin. Adobe Road welcomed guests to a curated food and wine pairing event January 24.

Each pairing was expertly curated to bring out the unique flavors and character of each wine. Kevin and Garrett took guests through the tastings with stories and insight into how each was crafted, making for an unforgettable evening of delicious Adobe Road’s critically acclaimed wines and delightful conversation. Guests took advantage of two pairing flights:

Select pairings:

2016 Adobe Road Viognier, Dry Creek Valley, Famighetti Vineyard paired with triple cream Brie on rice cracker with orange zest

The orange essence is this bite brought out the tropical nose of our Viognier and complimented the mild acidity of the wine beautifully.

2016 Adobe Road Pinot Noir, Green Valley of the Russian River Valley, Big Pig Vineyard paired with Prosciutto

The fatty mouthfeel of the Prosciutto and salty flavor of the meat was the perfect juxtaposition with the earthiness and fruit of our Pinot Noir.

2016 Adobe Road Redline, Sonoma/Napa Red Blend paired with aged Manchego with cured black olive

The nutty notes in the cheese combined with the burst of briny flavor in the olives compliment the blackberry and anise in the wine.

Reserve pairings:

2014 Adobe Road Cabernet Sauvignon, Knights Valley, Bavarian Lion Vineyard paired with black pepper pate on crostini

The gamey richness of the paté stands up to the complexity of this deep and flavorful Cabernet Sauvignon.

2014 Adobe Road Cabernet Sauvignon, Beckstoffer, Georges III paired with Genoa salami

The oily richness and salty flavors of the cured meat brings out the baking spice and dark berries in our flagship Cabernet.

2013 Adobe Road Apex, Premium Red Blend paired with mild Bleu cheese

The fruit and mocha flavors in our Apex blend are highlighted by the richness and flavor in this creamy cheese.

Award-winning Adobe Road wines and perfectly paired appetizers made delicious Wine Wednesday a night of education and fun to remember.
