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.

Tokaj guru Samuel Tinon pairs up with Chef David Bouley

Tuesday, March 18th, 6:30 Reception, 7pm Dinner

Part farmer, part historian and part winemaker Samuel Tinon from the legendary volcanic wine region Tokaj, Hungary and Chef David Bouley will team up one night only for an unforgettable gastronomic experience.

The savory menu will be paired with a selection of exclusively white wine, each in its own way will be perfumed, exotic, textured; and dry or sweet, allow Chef maximum creativity in the kitchen. Mesmerized by the wines Tinon an expatriate Frenchman, decided to settle in Tokaj to raise his family shortly after the post-Communist re-privatization of Hungary in the early 90′s. Steeped in both soil and history the beauty of Tinon’s wines are matched only by his inspired personal story. Please join us for this exceptional thought provoking dinner.
