RHYS VINEYARDS WINE DINNER

Tuesday, July 11, 2017 | 6:30 p.m.

One of the wine world’s best kept secrets, the Santa Cruz Mountains have long produced some of the New World’s finest wines. One of the best examples coming out of the region is Rhys Vineyards. With their focus on making great Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah from rocky soils in mountainous, cool, coastal climates of Northern California, Rhys has emerged as one of California’s most exciting wineries. Over the last 15 years, they have developed seven estate vineyards, six in the Santa Cruz Mountains and one in Anderson Valley. As wine critic Antonio Galloni has noted, “With each passing vintage, the wines continue to improve to the point where comparisons to the best estates in California are increasingly less relevant. Rhys is world class. It’s as simple as that.” Joining us from Rhys will be their winemaker, Jeff Brinkman, who has helped build the winery from the ground up. He will lead us through the wines paired with a special menu crafted by chefs Mark Sullivan and Steven Pelas. In addition, guests of the dinner will have the opportunity to purchase wine at retail pricing and be able to “skip the wait” to get on the Rhys mailing list.

SUMMER OF ROSÉ

Bacchus Management Group’s annual summer-long fun-raising program, Summer of Rosé, raises money for the Bacchus family’s favorite charitable organizations. This year, Bacchus announced Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco as their honorary organization. To participate, all you have to do is drink rosé at any Bacchus restaurant. Depending on the location, Bacchus will give back $1 per glass/$5 per bottle, or $5 per glass/$10 per bottle.

Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco is a local nonprofit organization that provides families in our community with a springboard to secure stable futures through affordable homeownership, financial literacy, and neighborhood revitalizations.

Summer of Rosé starts on Memorial Day and ends on Labor Day.
