Winemaker Wednesdays continue at Revival Bar + Kitchen in Berkeley, when they play host to a series of Wednesday night wine tastings, with special food pairings, featuring East Bay wineries and their winemakers. These are casual affairs at the plank from 7pm to 9pm., so feel free to join us and explore the local vintages you might not have discovered. The restaurant will continue to offer the featured winery’s wine in the week following its Winemaker Wednesday.
The next wineries in the series are:
- Paradox Wines – Wednesday 2/11
About Paradox Wines: Since their first release in 2005 Paradox has embraced the artisan wine movement focused on making handcrafted wine in small quantities with a philosophy of terroir, technique and time. This allows each individual wine to be brought to its full potential creating complex yet balanced wines of many varietals including Barbera, Syrah, Pinot Noir and Reserve Chardonnay. Inspiration comes from an interest in wines from all over the world. Winemaker and General Manager, Dominic Reo, has traveled to many countries visiting their wine regions and hundreds of wineries to bring those experiences back to California where fruit is sourced from premier estate vineyards and made locally in Berkeley.
- Lusu Cellars – Wednesday 2/25
About Lusu Cellars: Lusu Cellars, based in Berkeley, produces Heritage California and Rhone varietals. We source from dry-farmed and sustainable family-owned vineyards, using minimal winemaking practices to extract the essence of each vineyard. Our winemaking practices focus on showcasing the characteristics of the grapes and the earth they grow in. We believe that the entire process is just as important as the results for each wine we make. We make wines from varietals that we love, and our passion for the winemaking process goes into every bottle.
- Urbano Cellars – Wednesday 3/11
About Urbano Cellars: Former garage winemakers, Bob Rawson and Fred Dick started Berkeley-based Urbano Cellars in 2006 with the desire to produce food friendly wines that possess character and balance, using blends and more unique varietals such as Chenin Blanc, Grenache, Barbera and Sangiovese, Mourvedre and Temprinillo. In addition, Urbano Cellars balances its collection with Old Vine Zinfandel. Fred and Bob strive to source grapes from smaller growers that subscribe to sustainable growing practices. Their award winning wines are all handcrafted in small lots.
