How to use an aroma wheel and a wine journal to hone your skills
We here at Heringer are avid wine tasters. Each month our entire team gathers to dine and taste all the future new releases before anybody else. And boy do we get into it. But what sets us apart from other wine professionals is that we understand fully that a wine might smell and taste completely different from person to person – and that’s okay! So although we are very enthusiastic about what we taste, we are all about helping you find what you love and help you learn why you love it. Continue Reading
The Winemaker’s selections for our club pickups are our gorgeous 2013 Petite Sirah, 2013 Primitivo, 2015 Chenin Blanc, and 2013 Malbec. A variety of wines for a variety of occasions and pairings!
2013 Petite Sirah
Introducing our newest vintage of Petite Sirah! This Heringer classic rises up to every expectation and then takes it a step further. Dark chocolate- covered berries delight the tongue with every sip. Its extraordinary deep opaque color foreshadows the crushed black peppercorn and herbal tea flavors on the finish. A robust body, mild acidity and a well-balanced tannin promise an exciting adventure with every glass.
SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRING:
Chocolate and chile rubbed baby back ribs with baked criss-cut fries
Have a taste of our 2013 Primitivo and acquaint yourself with Zinfandel’s more sophisticated older sibling. Bright cherry and cranberry delight the palate and open up to a crisp sweet bell pepper with a slight tobacco finish. Elegant, soft, and just the right amount of flavor, this must have been what Galileo meant when he described wine as “sunlight held together by water.”
SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRING:
Lightly breaded eggplant with rosemary and fresh parsley
2015 Chenin Blanc
Our newest vintage of Chenin Blanc is the perfect wine to complement all your Continue Reading
Anyone who has ever looked closely at our wine bottles may have noticed that on the back you will find an all-knowing owl on a grape vine. One can imagine that it is overlooking the vineyard with its wisdom and knowledge of six generations of Heringers farming the land…or, more than likely, she’s looking for a tasty rodent to bring back to her spring babies. We call that all-natural, chemical-free rodent control! Those of you who have attended our annual Owl Release in the Vineyard event know that we partner with the Wildlife Care Association every year to raise money for the organization and to release rehabilitated owls back into their Clarksburg environment. We also build and maintain several owl boxes throughout our vineyards and along the levee to provide cozy homes for these loved birds. Why is the owl a recurring symbol of Heringer Estates? Because it represents in a simple, relatable visual, our ongoing commitment to sustainable farming, winemaking, and business practices.
Much like “green,” “eco-friendly,” and “organic,” “sustainable” has become another buzz word in today’s ever-connected, hyperconscious world. From environmental blogs, to college campuses, to entire communities encouraging shopping local and diminishing eco-footprints, references to sustainability are everywhere. But what does it mean to be a sustainable business? And, perhaps more importantly, why do we choose to live and grow our business sustainably?Continue Reading
