Summer Release 2017

Letter & Detailed Tasting Notes Here

Dear fans, friends, and family,

Our tasting room has been open for three months and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. The village of Arroyo Grande has been extremely welcoming, and we look forward to many years serving this amazing community. We offer two unique flights of six wines as well as a wine list with over 30 wines (we hope to add the entire library soon!) 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!

The new digs have re-invigorated our interest in some of the amazing vineyards in Southern San Luis Obispo county. Arroyo Grande, Edna Valley, and coastal San Luis are home to properties with unique soil, climate, and interesting varietal make-up. The terroir of these sites is un-mistakeable and we look forward to announcing these new partnerships as they come to fruition. This coming harvest is looking to be a smaller one, so finding new sources of fruit will be an adventure.

This summer’s release consists of a few new wines, two of which are our first stab at the variety, a library wine, and our first foray into cider… The whites this release consist of a Chenin Blanc from a 39-year-old vineyard in Clarksburg California and a super lean and bracing Riesling called Stereophonic (formerly Dr. Klapper). Reds include the 2015 Supergroup which is super concentrated and quite possibly the best ever of our Santa Maria AVA bottlings. Our first Cabernet Franc… Just 12 cases produced of the 2015 vintage, is only available to the wine club and mailing list (and in a La Fenetre label to boot). The aforementioned cider will also be made available as soon as next week in the tasting room. Native fermented & bottle conditioned this slightly funky, hazy, bubbly should be a hit. The library selection this time around is the 2010 Alisos Syrah… maturing beautifully and showing great!

Our first annual Summer pick up party on Saturday, August 5th 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.  Read the Summer 2017 Release Letter for individual tasting notes and information about each of the new wines… Cheers!

La Fenetre Wines rebranding as TIMBRE WINERY

La Fenetre, founded in 2005 in Santa Barbara County, CA is changing its name to TIMBRE WINERY beginning with the 2012 & 2013 vintage of single vineyard offerings, which are currently available at LaFenetreWines.com and TimbreWinery.com. Owners Joshua Klapper and Alex Katz felt that the winery had outgrown its original persona, including the name and packaging that went along with it…
