Fall Release 2017
Dear Fans, Friends, & Family,
Our tasting room has been open since April and we are amazed at the new community that has started to grow. The village of Arroyo Grande has been extremely welcoming, and we look forward to many years serving this amazing community. If you haven’t yet been in, we offer two unique flights of six wines as well as a wine list with over 30 wines (and 1 cider 😉) for you to purchase and take home or enjoy on our sweet patio as you take in the ambiance of our quaint downtown, roosters and all. If you haven’t been in yet, please stop by! Wine Club members have also been taking advantage of tastings with the winemaker on the second Tuesday of the month and with the amazing response, we look forward to continuing into 2018! Also, look for cheese pairings from Sophie’s Fromagerie in the coming weeks.
Harvest 2017 is coming to a close and we couldn’t be more excited about the wines we made in this interesting, challenging, and, ultimately, rewarding vintage. Pinot Noir is amazing and the first whole cluster Bien Nacido since 2010 will be one of the standouts in the cellar. New vineyard sources in San Luis Obispo county include Squire Canyon, where we sourced Pinot Noir for a red wine and our first ever press rose and, George Donati’s home ranch in the heart of the Edna Valley, from which we sourced a sick Syrah. Round that out with a collaboration with farmer Jeff Frey to make a Syrah/Grenache Blanc Co-Ferment from Mesa Verde in Santa Ynez, and we think 2017 will yield some killer bottlings.
This release consists of the wines which are the standard bearers of what we do. The gold standard. The top tier. The big guns. Six wines. Six amazing vineyards. Four brand new releases from one insane vintage. Across the board we had miniscule yields in 2015, and the wines are crazy concentrated and intense. 2015 Chardonnay from Bien Nacido, and Pinot Noirs from John Sebastiano, Presqu’ile, and Bien Nacido along with re-releases of ’13 Riverbench Pinot and ’10 Rita’s Crown Chardonnay make up a line-up that has been turned up to 11.
Our Fall pick up party on Saturday, November 18th at the tasting room will feature these new releases as well as some other favorites for only $20 per person (Wine Club members are FREE). As always, help us spread the word to your wine-loving friends and enemies, and holler at us @TimbreWinery on Facebook and Instagram. Without further ado, we present our release. Click here for individual tasting notes and information about each of the new wines… Cheers!
