MAIN PAVILION AND LIBRARY ST. BEER TRUCKS:
WINE PROVIDED BY
Leo Hillinger Secco Sparkling Pinot Noir
100% Pinot Noir crafted into a sparkling rose wine made in the ProSecco style. It has delicate aromas of fresh strawberries and red berries, which follow through on the palate. The flavors are beautifully balanced with a vibrant and refreshingly dry finish. Wonderful as an aperitif to begin a great dinner and evening, pairs very well with Sushi, or serve after dinner with fresh strawberries. Secco also makes a perfect toast!!
Bauer Gmörk Grüner Veltliner
This is what a good GV should taste like. Aromatic on the nose, a beautiful play of perfume, tropical fruit and acidity. All the aromas follow through on the palate and then the wine has a dry clean finish with a touch of the white pepper. There is no other single vineyard Grüner on the market that can beat this taste and price – best value!!! This is a great wine for vegetarian dishes and with any seafood.
Aromas of ripe peach and candy apple, intense fruit and spicy flavors, long finish
Morro Bay Chardonnay
Vanilla cream soda nose with a slice of fresh cut pineapple. Full body, tropical fruit, spice and pleasing vanilla oak note linger in the finish. Sweet flavor on the palate is from sur-lie ageing the wine on the primary yeast lees for 6 months. A versatile style of wine that can be served chilled with fine cuisine or a glass with friends.
This is a very elegant wine, harmonious, filled with ripe black cherry and subtle mocha notes. The palate features ripe deep fruit with a gentle smooth medium-bodied mouth feel. The finish is long and has slightly spicy peppery nuances. Austrian reds feature amazingly pure fruit flavors– have this Zweigelt with your next barbeque or at your next party
Leo Hillinger Small Hill Red
Slick and polished, handsome and sexy, dashing with a firm body. Former super model turned winemaker, Leo Hillinger, created this blend to make an easy, soft, drinkable, red with dark fruit. A light oak barrel touch and eloquent tannins, this red speaks of drinkability with plush texture and friendly flavors into the finish. Mostly Merlot
Hayes Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
Flavors of red cherry and anise, with a hint of vanilla, abound in this Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is well balanced, with medium tannin, a smooth mid palate and a spicy, coffee finish.
