"Drinking wine is just a part of life, like eating food." - Francis Ford Coppola
And we have to drink wine everyday just like we eat food everyday!! 

 

Some people take the entire month of January off drinking!!  I always say everyday above ground is reason to drink and with all that has happened in 2020 I would think people would think twice about a dry January!  

The month of January is filled with reasons to keep your wine drinking game sharp as we continue to consume the best bottles we have here at Wine Watch at warp speed.  So, when I got my hands on a few cases of Mark Aubert’s coveted Pinot Noirs and Chardonnay’s I immediately put a date on the calendar to drink as many of them as possible!

Owner/winemaker Mark Aubert has had a distinguished winemaking career including a 12-year stint at Peter Michael where he followed Helen Turley. Aubert succeeded Turley again several years later at Colgin Cellars. He has been a winemaking consultant for several prestigious wineries including Sloan, Bryant and Futo. He crafts outstanding vineyard-designate Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from estate and leased vineyards in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast in a full-blown hedonistic style. The first wines were released with the 2000 vintage. Ulises Valdez is Aubert's vineyard manager.

The winemaking process at Aubert is carefully guided by a winemaker with a farmer’s heart and artisan’s soul.  The essence of making great wine is rooted in a relationship with the land – it’s about the soil, about growing, about nurturing, about farming.   At Aubert the look to nature for guidance and to science for insight, as they craft wine with minimal intervention so a sense of place is elegantly reflected in every bottle of Aubert wine. 

Until 2008, the two Pinot Noirs have been from the Reuling Vineyard and UV Vineyard, both located in the Sonoma Coast AVA. A new estate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyard has been planted adjacent Reuling, 4 acres of Pinot Noir were planted at Ritchie Vineyard in 2008, and 9 acres of Pinot Noir have been planted at a new site high above the town of Occidental. In 2008, there were six different single vineyard Chardonnays and five Pinot Noir wines.

A new winery located at 333 Silverado Trail in Calistoga, CA was acquired in 2010 and the Auberts will move into the 8,000 square foot winery in January 2011.   With all of the critical acclaim that Mark has had over the years these wines have become some of the hardest to come by in all of California, most of them are only sold through the wineries mailing list. 

Join us as we experience 12 different wines from Aubert Winery along with a special tasting menu for around the same price as a single bottle of most of the offerings from this new California Cult Chardonnay and Pinot Noir producer.  The fee for this tasting is $250 + tax for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail andy@winewatch.com.
