Vino Volo at Bethesda Row invites you to Meet the Winemaker on Wednesday, April 24, from 6-9 PM.
Their guest will be from Acorn Winery of Healdsburg, in California's Russian River Valley. The latter three words are familiar to even the most casual American wine aficionado, of course.
Family owned and operated by Betsy and Bill Nachbaur, Acorn offers the following varieties:
Russian River Valley Cabernet Franc Russian River Valley Dolcetto
Russian River Valley Sangiovese
Russian River Valley
Syrah Russian River Valley
Acorn Hill, a proprietary blend
Medley, a proprietary blend
Rosato, a dry rosé
One of Acorn's specialties is field blends. Field blends are pretty much what they sound like: different varieties of grapes, grown together in the same vineyard, with flavors that complement each other when blended together in a finished product.
So, save yourself the airfare to California, and stop by Vino Volo on the 24th to sample the best of Acorn Winery.
