Because Hidden Gems Exist

We are very excited about the passionate network of wine bloggers on the internet and how they are influencing the future of wine consumption – no longer does the mainstream wine press have a stranglehold on “taste-making.”

Katrina Rene at “The Corkscrew Concierge” is the latest blogger to discover our wines. In addition to some of the typical wine blog tasting features, her beautifully composed site explores wine travel and food & wine pairing, and in approaching our wines she hints at the sublime experience of discovering a hidden gem off the beaten path… Take a look:

Finding Wine Greatness Off the Beaten Path at Judge Palmer Winery

Because Wine & Food Go Together

We are excited to announce that we will be hosting our first official winemaker dinner on Wednesday, April 13th in San Francisco at the fabulous A16 on Chestnut Street. Our friend Kurt Beitler from Bohème Wines will be co-hosting and pouring his stunning line-up of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay alongside the Judge Palmer wines. The 3-course prix fixe menu will be available throughout the restaurant all evening, but if you want to reserve a spot at the winemakers’ table on the back patio at 7 pm, RSVP to us ASAP.

A16 is the paragon of southern Italian cuisine in San Francisco, with an incomparable wine list curated by our friend Shelley Lindgren. We are proud that they currently serve our 2013 Sauvignon Blanc – one of only 4 California wines poured on their 20-deep selection of white wines by the glass. We highly recommend a visit here on your next trip to San Francisco – the hen of the woods mushrooms are a great pairing with our Sauvignon Blanc, and the pizzas and squid ink pasta are not to be missed.
