Whip it! Whip it Good! That’s what Gerald Casale of DEVO has been up to! He’s been whipping up some tantalizing Pinots on his 50 by 50 vineyard in Sonoma Valley. And you’re invited to his 2014 Launch Tasting Event in the Hollywood Hills at the Neutra Kun House on Wednesday, April 30th.
It will be a first class experience you do not want to miss. Hosted by musical legend and self-proclaimed Pinot-junkie, Casale, he will open his state of the art estate, designed by 20th Century Modernist architect, Mies Van Der Rohe, to attendees. Guests will be afforded the opportunity to witness and partake in history in the making in an absolutely incredible setting with stunning views.
Sonoma Valley wines are sensational by nature, and Casale’s 50 by 50 Pinots sound as if they rise or even supersede Sonoma expectations, as well as does his vineyard. The twenty-three acre winery sits atop the Monticello Road incline in the Wooden Valley of Napa, California and slopes gently through key elevations, fit for the perfect environment to breed delicious Bordeaux-style Estate wine grapes that are sure to awaken all of your senses.
This Launch event is presented exclusively by Wally’s Wine & Spirits. Come! Join us! Meet Gerald Casale and taste the debut wines from his 50 by 50 vineyard: the Sonoma Pinot Noir (2012) and the Rose of Pinot Noir (2013). I, for one, cannot wait to sample these libations upon my palette.
“This 2012 vintage captures the tremendous depth and character of Sonoma Coast’s stellar growing season. Cherry and Blackberry flavors with a hint of Cinnamon yield to deeply satisfying earth and spice finish.” Gerald Casale
“The 2013, 50 By 50 Rose of Pinot Noir is superbly crisp and dry delivering the expected full, lush finish of Pinot Noir fruit that guarantees satisfaction.” Gerald Casale
