Please join us for an intimate tasting with Jason Edward Charles of Vinca Minor Wines from Berkely, California on Thursday, May 12 in our private tasting room. Vinca Minor has quickly become one of the most iconic producers of the new California movement and we can't wait to share his wines with you! Winemaker Jason Edward Charles set up shop in Berkeley by way of Bordeaux and Napa. Jason highlights old vine carignan coming from the Redwood Valley of Mendocino because of its ability to offer ripeness and fruitiness whilst simultaneously maintaining freshness and acidity. By drinking Vinca Minor wines, you are supporting a small, family run operation. Jason spearheads making the wine and his wife, Emily, has the eye for design and is in charge of branding and all of the gorgeous wine labels.
There will be two seatings available for purchase. The first seating will begin at 5:30 pm and the second at 8pm. Please see below for details.
$40 per ticket. Each ticket will include a tasting of 5 Vinca Minor wines and one charcuterie board to enjoy per party.
Wine orders can be placed following your tasting. We look forward to hosting you soon!
About the maker:
Jason Edward Charles has spent the greater portion of the past two decades making the world his classroom. His post-collegiate years found Charles taking photographs of everything from street life in Mexico City to the gorgeous Spanish countryside. After Europe, Charles moved to New York and waited tables in the Manhattan restaurant industry, where he was hostage to the good fortune of being surrounded by passionate wine experts. His interest ablaze, Charles landed a harvest internship and promptly moved to Northern California, where he worked the fields to learn every possible aspect of the winemaking craft. From there, Charles headed to France to further his studies at Chateau Haut Goujon in Lalande de Pomerol.
After serving the soil, grape and sun in France, Charles returned to work at some of Napa’s most renowned wineries, formally establishing Vinca Minor in 2013.
