Did you know Treasure Island is a hotbed of natural winemaking? Yep, that little island in the middle of San Francisco Bay--which you thought was just the midpoint of the Bay Bridge--is a veritable fermentation lab. We’ve organized a special tasting with 3 favorite Treasure Island natural winemakers who will each pour two wines. These wineries don’t have tasting rooms on the island, so this is your chance to meet local superstars and taste their limited production wines!
Joining us will be: Noel Diaz of Purity Wines, whose commitment to transparency is evident both in the beautiful fruit of his wines and the winemaking process he details meticulously on the back of his labels; John Donoghue of Thee & Thou, who is making superb California blends; and Ben Herod of Oro en Paz (meaning “gold in peace” from the old San Francisco motto), a collaboration of three friends making elegant single vineyard, single varietal wines.
