Spicy Olive Virtual Wine Tasting July 25th, 2020 5:30pm with Robert Foley, Winemaker
Robert Foley, who Executive Wine Seminars called “The God of Cabernet,” will lead us through four of his spectacular Napa Valley and California wines on Saturday, July 25th at 5:30. After earning degrees in Viticulture and Enology from U.C. Davis, Robert began making wine in 1977 and was the founding winemaker at Pride Mountain. He also helped create Switchback Ridge, Hourglass, Paloma, Schoolhouse, and Engle Family. Now focusing on his eponymous winery and Switchback Ridge; he still has his hands in a few offerings from Shelter, Engel Family, and Padis.
You may call ahead for curbside pick up or come in to The Spicy Olive to get the wines prior to the event so you can taste along with Robert; we will be able to deliver the wines if you prefer. You can sign in to Zoom to join Robert, Chris, Melanie, and anyone else participating as we taste through the four wines on a live, interactive web conference. A link or Log In and Password for the Zoom Meeting will be sent to those who indicate their interest. Please call The Spicy Olive (513.847.4397), or Chris (513.560.7007) and let us know you want to get the wines and join in the fun.
These are very special wines and are more expensive than we have previously offered in our Virtual Tastings; we have had requests for some higher end wines like these and the opportunity to have Robert present them was impossible to pass up. They are not in the budget for many of you but remember that you do NOT have to buy all of the wines to participate. You could make them more affordable by finding creative, and safe, ways to split the wines with friends and neighbors. As always, we are able to discount purchases of 6 or more bottles by 10%.
