Beginning January 15, 2016 - DGV will become BOA!
At David Girard Vineyards, we have always tried to be an oasis in the storm of the daily grind, to mix three metaphors. We believe that when you visit, you deserve unhurried quiet pleasure out of your time here. You deserve to feel at home as you look out over the vines, enjoy a delicious glass (or two) of wine and engage in patio and terrace conversations with friends.
So, to ensure that you never lose that familial feeling, and always feel welcome, unhurried and can enjoy our wines and property at your leisure, we are making the following New Year’s resolution for you:
¨ By Appointment Only Tastings. What? Yep, no more standing three people deep at the bar trying to fight for your next taste of wine. You’ll be guaranteed a fun, relaxed and enjoyable time with personalized attention. Of course, wine club members will still be able to come in and pick up your wines as you wish; and on Wine Club release days no appointment will be needed for members. Otherwise, we want to be able to give you, our guests, the specialized care and attention you deserve, and we feel this will be accomplished by making an appointment. We want to have time to spend with you. We want you to have time to spend with us.
¨ The good news is, if you are a wine club member you (and up to three guests) can still come and participate in our Select Tasting (by appointment), free of charge. The price for non-members for this experience, as outlined below, will be $15.
You will taste through six pre-selected wines, and be taught about how each wine was handcrafted to reflect the terroir of the vineyard, and aged to create a balanced, superior (and most importantly delicious) wine! The experience will last approximately 45 minutes.
In addition, we will also be offering a Tour and Cheese Pairing Option. WIne Club Members and a guest will be able to take advantage of this option free of charge once per year, but the price for non-members will be $28 per person.
Tour and Cheese Pairing Tasting
This is a fun and informative experience! Begin the afternoon with a welcome taste on our patio, followed by a guided tour of our lush vineyards and winemaking facility. You’ll learn about our history, the connection to the Gold Rush, how the grapes are grown and the wine is made. Upon return, a private wine and cheese pairing awaits you. You will learn how the flavors of the cheese enhance the nuances of the wine, and how to select what cheese to go with what varietals. This experience will last approximately 1 ½ hours.
We will also be offering barrel tastings, owner tours, and winemaking tour opportunities on selected days throughout the year.
However, the fun will not just end with the tasting, we will also be offering:
- Small venue concerts throughout the year.
- Fun and excting wine club release events and winemaker lunches for our wine club members.
- Elegant, high-end gourmet winemaker dinners at various locations throughout the property.
The link to make appointments will be available in the next couple of days, we look forward to seeing you at DGV soon!
