Sutton Cellars Wine Tasting
Nov 11 – Come sample wines from San Francisco winemaker Carl Sutton. Sutton Cellars was started in 1996 by Carl Sutton producing a mere 350 cases of four handcrafted varietals. To this day the focus remains single varietal and often single vineyard wines from sites that are cool climate, old vine and/or singular clones. Current production is around 3,000 cases, half of which is a second label “Table Wine” that is 100% Sonoma County fruit priced right for today’s economy. The main (brown) label wines are never more than 300 case lots, and are still hand filled and hand corked. The goal at Sutton Cellars is to coax wines of subtlety from the vineyard striving for lower alcohol, higher acid and less oak than is the commercial norm in California winemaking. Unless noted all wines are fermented with wild yeast and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
