Treasure Hunter Wine Tasting with Tom Doran

Wed Aug 5th, 2015
5:00pm - 7:00pm

Good news and greater news:

 

The latest batch of Treasure Hunter wines is absolutely stunning! Five of the six bottlings, all from California's stellar 2013 vintage, will be featured at a special Treasure Hunter Wine Tasting with Tom Doran!

 

For those not already familiar with Treasure Hunter wines, here's the scoop: A joint venture of three wineries, Treasure Hunter isn't really a winery at all. The company's "hunters" (sommeliers and industry insiders) scour California for high-end producers that have already made (or partially made) great wine but have no where to sell it. Because these "hunters" pay cash and keep their prestigious sources strictly secret, they land deals on World-Class juice at incredible discounts. They bottle these one-time buys under the Treasure Hunter label, and sell the wine at a fraction of the prices charged at the source wineries. Tonight:

  • "Glass Slipper" Chardonnay, Carneros
  • "Furious Damsel" Cabernet Sauvignon, Lodi
  • "Lion Tamer" Petite Sirah, Rockpile
  • "Scalywag" Red blend, Napa Valley
  • "Chloe's Song" Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

 

Tom Doran will be here to share stories about the wines and the search process, but don't expect to trick him into telling you his sources. He'll only chuckle and shake his head.

 

*** Summer Pricing ***

 

Until Labor Day all tasting attendees will receive the $10 discount normally available only to Insiders Club members. So ALL tasting guests wll be $10 per person (over 21 only)!
