Final Four: Croatia - France

Saturday, July 19th, 6:30 to 8:00pm
FRANCE vs CROATIA

Our Final Four has been decided and tonight brings the first semi-final match-up!
Tonight's matchup presents the last great hurdle for Croatia as it barrels its way, improbably, towards history. Having already felled the U.S.A. and Germany en route to this match, Croatia will have it's work cut out for it, as France has proven its worth all tournament long. Not content with their weak-kneed performance last time around, France has pulled out the big guns each and every time, determined to reclaim its throne.
Will tonight be a landmark decision in favor of lesser-known wines or will it serve to cement France in the Pantheon of Wine?
You'll decide their fate, TONIGHT!

places. Please come and taste a few and armchair travel to where Žlahtina, Plavac Mali, Teran, Pinela, Babić, Debit and many other ancient grapes grow.

Good Bye California

Wednesday, April 2, at 7:00pm - 9:00pm

The Miloš winery works exclusively with the Plavac Mali grape, the most famous Croatian indigenous variety, related to Zinfandel.

Their brand Stagnum was among the first Croatian “great wines” with cult following and started a revolution. Stagnum is a more ambitious, elegant and enchanting wine which reflects the soul of Plavac mali and Pelješac’s unique terroir.

$15 per person pre-sale or at the door.

This is the last evening the Miloš kids, Franica, Ivan, and Josip will spend in California before they fly on to New York and then back home to Croatia. Please help to make this a memorable Good Bye California party.

Branches of the Zinfandel Tree

Friday, March 28th, 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Please join us this Friday at ACME Fine Wines for a private pouring with two very different, supremely excellent branches of the Zinfandel family tree.

In this corner…CHRISTINA & NELLY TURLEY of TURLEY WINE CELLARS representing the most revered Zinfandel house in California, committed to old vines, heritage vineyard sites and true expression of California’s pride, Zinfandel.

And in this corner… IVAN, FRANICA and JOSIP MILOŠ of MILOŠ VINEYARDS one of Croatia’s most exciting wineries. The patriarch of the Miloš family, Frano, makes wines exclusively from the varietal Plavac Mali, which translates to ‘little blue’. It is the progeny of the ancient variety Crljenak Kaštelanski (AKA Zinfandel). The three Miloš children are continuing the family legacy of producing noble, ageworthy wines from this costal Croatian region. Proudly represented stateside by Blue Danube Wine Company.

We’d love you to join us to talk, taste and geek out about Plavac Mali and Zinfandel, their shared past and exciting future.

Attendance is limited to 40 guests, $10 admission at the door (which can be applied to the purchase of select featured wines). First come, first served– please RSVP to yours truly, erin@acmefinewines.com.
