Alex of Unti Vinyards

  • Local Cellar 2801 22nd Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

Come taste four of Unti's current releases: a Grenache/Mourvedre Rosé, a Fiano, a Barbara and a red blend of Sangiovese & Montepulciano, as Alex comes to visit and discuss and pour the wines he helps create with vigneron George Unti and winemakers Mick Unti and Jason Valenti! Dry Creek Valley’s climate is ideal for growing classic Mediterranean red grape varieties. These varieties show Unti's favorite attributes in wines from this appellation: expressive fruit, ripe tannins and balanced acidity. Unti employ both modern techniques such as long pre-fermentation maceration, and traditional methods, such as whole cluster fermentation in open top tanks and using a basket press. Unti age their wines in only French oak barrels, foudres and concrete tanks to highlight the aromatics and flavors derived from the vineyards. Dry Creek wines inspired by European counterparts.

Tasting is free and available anytime from 4:00 - 6:00.  Must be at least 21 years old.
