Be a Winemaker for the Day!
Join us at FranksWine here on North Union Street one week from today for a fun and educational evening to experience the 'Art of Blending' from Lyeth Estates. Lyeth Estate, established by Chip Lyeth in 1981, was one of the first wineries in California to pursue the unique complexity and composition achieved by the marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon and the other traditional Bordeaux varieties. Wines of this style, known as Meritage, have become some of the world's most highly-rated wines.

Blending can help balance the wine, add layers of flavors, and better integrate the tannins and acids. Blending will allow you to select the best characteristics of different wines and then mix them together to create a much better flavor profile.
Lyeth, one of the founding members of the Meritage Association founded in 1988, has played an integral role in helping to define this unique style of winemaking. Today, Lyeth continues its legacy of blending family and tradition in its Sonoma County wines, winning praise from critics and consumers worldwide.

Lyeth Estate's Lindsey Field will start you off with her L de Lyeth 2011 Sonoma Chardonnay to get your palate primed! Then we'll split you off into groups of four, and you'll taste through Lyeth's signature wines (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec from the 2011 vintage), and finally your group will create your own perfect blend! Once you have your Chateau Motherf*&%$@ (or whatever you want to name it) in front of you, you can taste it next to the L de Lyeth 2011 Meritage and compare your winemaking skills to Lyeth's Winemaker Bill Arbios!

Prizes will be awarded throughout the evening for general wine trivia, best name, best label design and best blend!
