Vinoterica Wine Club closes!
November 29, 2016 — I'm writing to let you all know that after exactly four years from it's launch, Bocanova's Vinoterica Wine Club will cease to exist as of December 31st, 2016. It was a very difficult decision to make, and there are numerous reasons for it on the parts of management and myself; as the saying goes, "It's complicated." I'm truly saddened to have to report this!
What I most want to say, however, is what a pleasure it's been serving you with the very best wine values I could find both from around the world, and from producers virtually next door. And even more important to me have been the relationships I've had with you, and those that I've seen develop as a result of our wine club camaraderie. I'm really going to miss hanging out with you at our monthly tastings!
But not before our final wrap-up tasting this month, December 10, 2–5pm, at Bocanova!
I'll be pouring our last two selections from one of my favorite Sonoma county producers, Selby Winery. Some of you attended the last Rick's Supper Club, with Susie Selby herself in attendance, and enjoyed several of her award-winning (and served-at-the-White-House) wines.
Your December wines are the amazingly versatile Selby Grenache, and Selby Merlot—a wine that completely erases all the bad associations you've ever had with Merlot wines! I'm really grateful that Susie's given me a fantastic deal on these wines, far below what even her own wine club members receive. These are wines that speak for themselves, and will make your holiday festivities all the more...well, festive!
The Selby wines will be available for pickup beginning Friday, December 2nd.
