Qupé Wine Tasting with Owner and Wine-maker Bob Lindquest

The Goat's Beard Farm Cheese and Wine tasting has sold out.....but...

We are fortunate to have Columbia native Bob Lindquist, owner and wine maker of Qupé Vineyards at Top Ten Wines for a tasting on Tuesday, October 21 at 7:00Pm. Bob is one of the pioneers of the wine industry in Santa Barbara. He is also one of the original Rhone Rangers, wine makers who specialize in Syrah, Grenache, Marsanne and Rousanne. We will be trying some of his very highly allocated Hillside wines. Bob Lindquist literally changed the face of the California wine scene.

“Qupé is dedicated to producing handcrafted Rhône varietals and Chardonnay from California’s Central Coast. We employ traditional wine making techniques to make wines that are true to type and speak of their vineyard sources. Our goal is to make wines with impeccable balance that can be enjoyed in their youth, yet because of the good acidity from cool vineyard sites can also benefit from ageing. We are committed to sourcing grapes from some of the best and most prestigious vineyards in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.”

- Bob Lindquist

We will start the evening at 7:00PM with Kir and Peche Royals. We will try Bob's wine served with an variety of cheeses, and finish the evening with some 20+ year old vintage Warre's Porto from 1985 with house-made Biscotti and Candy Factory dark chocolate.

There is a cost of $10 per person for this tasting and we hope you will find some of these stunning wines to take home. It is a good time to start getting your cellars ready for the Holidays.

Best, Paul Vernon
