Talisman Winery: Adastra Vineyard Vertical Wine Dinner


Join us on a journey through the years with Talisman Winery at the girl & the fig‘s  Suite D  on November 11th.

Talisman Wines has been producing Pinot Noir since 1993, and currently sources fruit from 11 outstanding vineyard sites in Sonoma, Napa & Mendocino counties. This special evening will pair 5 courses with 8 vintages, 9 wines, all sourced from Adastra Vineyard; “the most age-worthy of the lineup” according to Winemaker and Owner Scott Rich.

Adastra is a California Certified Organic vineyard situated in the very heart of the Los Carneros appellation. Located in a low spot with cool air flow and very thin, relatively light clay-loam soils, it is a site with naturally low vigor. The inherently low yields produce extraordinary fruit from vines that require little in the way of manipulation, a hallmark of an exceptional vineyard.

Chef John and his team have created a menu to guide us on this journey through the years.

We look forward to hosting the lovely Scott and Marta Rich of Talisman Winery (and enjoying their delicious wines!) – we hope you’ll join us November 11th!
