June Wine Club Pick Up Parties – June 6-8 & June 14

Posted on

Hello Spillers!  Summertime is almost upon us and that means it is almost time for another Spiller Club Pick Up Party at San Diego Cellars.  We have lots of exciting news and changes to share with you, so read on!

Spiller Club Pick Up
Because of the ever increasing size of our wine club, we are spreading the party over several days.  Also, because this announcement is going out on such short notice (sorry, we have been so busy lately!), we are also spreading it out over two weekends for people who may be out of town or otherwise unable to make it this weekend.

The dates for the Pick Up Party are as follows:

Friday June 6–Private Spiller Club Pick Up Party for members and guests from 5 – 8 pm, followed by live music from Lotus Cortina from 8 – Close (Jazz/Funk)

Saturday June 7–Private Spiller Club Pick Up Party for members and guests from 4 – 7 pm, followed by live music from Michael J. Dwyer from 7 – 10pm (Dylan-esque Singer/Songwriter)

Sunday June 8–Private Spiller Club Pick Up Party for members and guests from 1-4 pm, followed by live music from Psychic Vacuum from 4 – 7 pm (Acoustic Rock)

Saturday June 14–Private Spiller Club Pick Up Party for members and guests from 5 – 8 pm, followed by live music from Los Caballeros from 8 – 11pm (Latin Rock)

New Wines Available
One of the reasons we have been so busy is that we have been bottling and labeling some new release and limited edition wines for you to enjoy this summer.  We are very excited to have the following wines available for purchase:

Bottled Wines
Syrah/Zinfandel Co-fermented Blend, 2011 Solano County
If you tried this wine when it was available on tap, then you know you want to come down and buy it in bottle while you can.  Only 12.5 cases bottled, so we are releasing this wine to Spiller Club members only.  Limit two per member while supplies last.  $28 club price.

Grenache, 2012 Paso Robles, Barrel Reserve
This is the first wine to have been pulled out for our barrel reserve program.  Although I had several barrels of this vintage, one barrel was so far superior than the others that we just had to pull it and bottle it on its own immediately.  A classic Grenache with light red color, strong floral aromas, and loads of spicy strawberry and cherry on the palette, this one is perfect for summer sipping.  Only 25 cases produced, so we are releasing it for the Spiller Club members before it goes out to the general public.  $30.40 club price.

Cabernet Sauvignon, 2010 Pine Mountain Vineyard, Sonoma County
Another single barrel release, this Cab spent three years in a brand new French oak barrel, and it shows!  Rich and inviting, with a core of dark spicy fruit surrounded by flavors of toasty oak and vanilla.  This was a special project I made with my father in law by hand in his garage.  A true garagiste wine in the spirit of the great small Bordeaux producers.  Only 20 cases produced.  $40 club price.

In addition to these newly bottled small production wines, we have limited number of bottles of the following wines that you already know and love:
Syrah, 2009 San Diego County–Only 12 cases left.  $20 club price.
Viognier, 2009 San Diego County–Only 10 cases left.  $20 club price.

Wines On Tap
We also have some new wine for filling up your CRUzers:

Chardonnay, 2012 Napa Valley
A refreshingly light version of Chardonnay, this one is perfect for summer.  Good acid balances out the hints of French oak and creamy mouthfeel.  $22.40 club price.

In addition to our newly released Chardonnay, we have very limited amounts of the following wines available to fill your CRUzers up with:
Sauvignon Blanc, 2013 San Diego County–Less than 10 gallons left (less than 40 CRUzers).  $24 club price.
Cabernet Sauvignon, 2011 Paso Robles–Less than 20 gallons left (about 80 Cruzers).  $28 club price.

We still have lots of Petite Sirah, Dry Creek and Lodi Zins, Santa Ynez Viognier, and Albarino for you to enjoy as well.  In addition, we will be previewing some samples of new soon to be released wines, including a 2011 Syrah from Solano County, and a 50/50 blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah.

San Diego Urban Wineries Passport
We are proud to announce that we have teamed up with some of our friends to create the San Diego Urban Wineries Alliance.  To celebrate our new association, we have developed a Passport program which will be available for purchase at the winery.  For $50 you get to taste at 11 different urban wineries around San Diego County, an approximately 50% discount.  This is a great way to discover some of the other great wines being produced right here in San Diego County.  Supplies are limited and we expect that they will sell out fast, so grab them while you can!

Thanks so much for your continued support, and we can’t wait to see you soon to taste our new wines and show you the progress we have made around the winery.
