may 1: napa valley wine dinner ft. robert sinskey vineyards

One of the long-time and iconic wineries of Napa Valley, Robert Sinskey has evolved into one of the most progressive and free-spirited producers in an area known for being reticent to change. Robert Sinskey embraces such Napa oddities as skin-contact Pinot Gris, Alsatian style white-blends and produces what may be the finest expression of Cabernet Franc in all of California. It is this embrace of outsider grapes and blends whilst maintaining tremendous visibility in the California scene that truly defines Robert Sinskey.

Please help us welcome Robert's daughter-in-law Maria, executive chef at Robert Sinskey Vineyards, as she collaborates with Pacific Standard Time's Erling-Wu Bower in a celebration of California cuisine and viticulture.

may 22: progressive wine dinner ft. jolie-laide wines

In a literal translation, "jolie-laide" means "pretty ugly," but we think a better expression of the essence of the term is "unconventional beauty." Scott Schultz's Jolie-Laide wine project is anything but conventional, sourcing grapes from areas as diverse as Napa Valley and the Sierra Foothills and working entirely with such French transplants as Trousseau Gris, Melon de Bourgogne, Gamay Noir and Valdique. The results are electric and a major reason that Jolie-Laide's minuscule winery has become a powerhouse in the new generation of California winemaking. Pacific Standard Time is honored to welcome one of our favorite winemakers for a wine dinner celebrating art and progressive viticulture.
