17th Annual Wine Club BBQ and Bocce Ball Tourney
Saturday, June 24th
SAVE THE DATE! Join us for our 17th Annual Zucca Wine Club BBQ in the tasting room garden (431 Main Street, Murphys) on Saturday, June 24th from 12-5pm. The Zucca and Patterson families will be cooking up their famous BBQ ribs to go with rice pilaf, strawberries and chocolate! The food is free for wine club members and their guests and $15 for the public. Pair your meal with our regular wine club free tasting in the Toscana Room or a glass of wine in the garden ($5 by the glass special for wine club members).
We will end the night with some “friendly” bocce ball games at the Murphys Park from 6:30-7:30pm. Can you form a team to beat the Zucca family and staff? Give it a try.
Double Gold and Gold from the sf chronicle wine competition!
The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition results are in. Our Papaveraceae won a Double Gold at the SF Chronicle Wine Competition with over 7100 entries this year and our Sorprendere won a Gold.
DOUBLE GOLD - Papaveraceae (Papa for short) is the botanical name for the poppy family and it reflects the spirit of family in the wine. It is a delightful combination of 50% Petite Sarah, 25% Zinfandel and 25% Sangiovese. We blended this wine especially for our wine club members and our “Papa” is available only to them. The beautiful label is also unique to this wine. We find rich aromas of cherry, and spices with flavors of dark cherry, tobacco, chocolate and spice. This is a big wine that can also be sipped by itself. We enjoy it on our patio overlooking the vineyards at sunset. What a life! We hope you enjoy it in your special place.
GOLD - Definitely a surprise (This word means "to surprise" in Italian). Our wine is a blend of Zinfandel, Syrah and Barbera in equal parts which showcases mysterious marionberry, plum, sweet almond and a touch of hazelnut upon first sniff. The flavors are subtle and smooth; the finish long and glorious.
