Join us to welcome special guest Eric Sussman, Owner and Winemaker for Radio Coteau and County Line wines. We are thrilled to bring these new wines to the shop and especially to meet the winemaker!
Eric developed his passion for wine-growing while studying agriculture at Cornell University. After spending several years in Washington’s Yakima Valley, he immersed himself in the old-world culture and traditions of France. In 2002, Eric established Radio-Coteau, focusing on the north coast vineyards of western Sonoma County and Anderson Valley. With their bench-land locations, well-drained soils, exposure to capricious marine air and fog, these sites host grapes naturally suited to their surrounding elements. This natural selection afforded Eric an opportunity to refine his Old World experiences while working with New World grapes.
“The best fertilizer is the farmer’s shadow,” is an old farming adage meaning there’s no substitute for a farmer’s own daily involvement in cultivating the land. Going beyond the vine, Eric and his team embrace a diverse agrarian platform, utilizing both organic and Biodynamic farming practices to build the health of the soil and the surrounding ecosystem.
We will taste 6 Sonoma wines + artisan cheeses & charcuterie. $25. Tickets required.
