October 2021 Wine Tasting
We'd love to hear to see you there!
Join us for the October 2021 Wine Tasting with sampling and light hors d’oeuvres. Classical guitarist David Muñoz will provide music for the event. This month we spotlight single estate and organic French wines. Produced without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides, these wines are crafted with passion by human hands. Tickets are $15 each and are available on Eventbrite.
At The Reserve Retreat, we passionately search out wines from makers throughout the world that share our belief that sustainably produced, clean, handcrafted wines are simply better – better for the families that make them, better for our planet, and certainly better for those of us drinking them.
In many areas of France, winemakers are going back to this natural art of winemaking despite the arduous process of certification. To be certified by the appropriate government agencies they must adhere to the strict procedures regarding the use of certified fertilizers, soil inspections, number of vines per hectare, and the amount of hectoliters produced. This process begins with the inspection of the soil and continues for three years to become certified. Once certified and the grapes are picked the process is not over as the government closely monitors the vinification process through the bottling of the wine.
