Local Art and Wine Festivals
Villa del Monte winemakers Neil and John are looking forward to pouring a selection of wines at two upcoming art and wine festivals, both of which support local community organizations. Villa del Monte wines will be available by the taste and by the bottle at both events.
The Scotts Valley Art Wine & Beer Festival takes place at Skypark on August 15 and 16 and supports the Scotts Valley Chamber of Commerce, the Scotts Valley Arts Commission, and the local schools and businesses in the Scotts Valley area.
The Capitola Art and Wine Festival, which will take place in Capitola Village on September 12 and 13, raises funds for the Capitola Soquel Chamber of Commerce to support local businesses.
Hope to see you at one of these summer festivals!
Artsy Wine Label for our First Blend
Our first blend, Vintner's Select, combines smooth Merlot flavors with robust Cabernet. Both the 2011 and 2012 Vintner's Select will be ready for release later this month, and both vintages will feature a colorful label from well known San Jose artist Sonya Paz. Come by the winery on August 29 or 30 for a taste of wine and a peek at the label. This collectible bottle will only be available while supply lasts.
Shopper's Corner Adds Villa del Monte Wine
Shopper's Corner, located at 622 Soquel Avenue in Santa Cruz, now carries Villa del Monte wine. This is a wonderful, locally-owned grocery store that dates back to 1938. Be sure to check out the cheese department, onsite butcher shop, and, of course, the large selection of local wines.
