I love the wine country, but I am by no means a wine snob. I know what wines I like and I drink them. One of my favorite wineries is Nalle in Healdsburg. I can not describe the zin, not sure about the tannins, the oak, just know that I love it. I first tried a glass of Nalle Zin at Santi in Geyserville. I immediately knew I had to own some. I called the folks over at Nalle, and met them at the winery. I showed up with a minivan full of children, all mine. We were welcomed, shown around the unassuming grounds and I've been a Nalle fan ever since!
Nalle will be holding their 25th anniversary celebration on June 28th, from noon to seven. For twenty dollars, you can taste wine, enjoy some food, music and maybe a game of horseshoes. You will also be given a chance to purchase cases at a discount. I was just dining at Blue Hill, in New York City (yes, that is where the Obamas dined) and guess what wine I saw on their menu, Nalle!
