Wrath Wine Pairing December 2nd
Join Us For a Four Course Steak & Seafood Wine Pairing Dinner
Tuesday December 2, 2014 — 6:30 pm
“We are proud to lend our food to these wines, whose wine-making philosophy matches ours’ about cooking.”
As many of you know, I spend many of my rare vacations visiting vineyards. I discovered Wrath Wines this summer in Monterrey, California. “In addition to their great taste, I was drawn to their philosophy of small production, limited distribution, attitude, passion and respect for their land and how it mirrors my own philosophy about food and cooking. I knew I wanted to do a wine dinner and introduce them to you.”

15% of proceeds of this wine pairing will be donated to Laidley’s Ladies Foundation. The non-profit is dedicated to helping under-funded families receive excellent breast cancer care.
Our Estate San Saba Vineyard is sheltered in a nook just below the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA, roughly 25 miles southeast of the town of Monterrey. Our climate is heavily influenced by the morning fog and afternoon winds from the nearby Pacific Ocean. This is a cool site with little rainfall and one of the longest growing seasons in the world. Our unusual climate allows us to produce ripe, concentrated wines of exceptional balance.
Wrath Wine Philosophy
We strive to illuminate terroir. Our viticultural and winemaking methods are designed to showcase the topography, geology and climate of a finite, naturally defined piece of land. While all of our wines possess accurate varietal characteristics, their real strength is their ability to deliver the unique aromatics, flavors and textures of a specific terroir.
To help us explore terroir we’ve adopted a “less is more” mantra. It guides our actions and influences the style and personality of our wines. It is that recurring theme that appears in our weather, farming and wine-making.
- The cool windy climate and gravelly soils of our Estate San Saba Vineyard naturally results in low yields.
- Lower yields lead to greater concentration and more character in our wines.
- Gentle handling during harvest and fermentation preserves fruit and site character.
- Intensive grape sorting ensures only the highest quality fruit.
- Minimal processing throughout the wine-making process guarantees purity and authenticity.
- The use of indigenous yeast for specific lots heightens site specificity.
- The minimal use of filtration retains texture and flavor.
