Dutton Goldfield Wines And More

Hosts: John Schultz

Samantha Straw

John Will Present:

Dutton-Goldfield Winery began with a handshake in a vineyard in 1998, when longtime colleagues and friends Steve Dutton and Dan Goldfield recognized a shared vision between them—to craft wines that express the personalities of their cool-climate vineyards, and which they’d enjoy drinking at their own dinner tables. A fifth-generation farmer, Steve grew up with a love of driving tractors, and without any doubt about his future career. His father, Warren Dutton, had begun growing grapes in the western reaches of Russian River Valley in the mid-1960s, at a time when most people thought the area was too cool to grow fruit for quality still wine. After graduating from Boston’s Brandeis University, Dan headed west to begin a career in research chemistry, with a few detours for skiing and hiking along the way. Always an outdoor enthusiast and adventurer, the life of lab work was quickly replaced with a dream of winemaking when his brother turned him on to the 1969 Burgundies.

At Dutton-Goldfield, we believe we draw from the best Dutton vineyards to craft these very special Estate Grown wines. The Dutton’s are the premier grape growers in the region and sell grapes to many top wine producers including Patz & Hall, Lewis, Kistler, Nickel and Nickel, Mary Edwards, DuMOL, Ramey and Ironhorse just to name a few.

 

We will explore 4 very limited wines from Dutton Goldfield.

How limited are they? Two have only 350 cases made and two have only 150 6 packs made of which there are only 7 cases in MA!

A Tale of Two Ports

For more than 250 years, Ferreira has been synonymous with high-quality Portuguese wine, and known around the world as “the Portuguese brand.” Ferreira was founded in 1751, and under the direction of Dona Antónia Adelaide became the reference point for exceptional ports and Douro wines. Today, Ferreira continues to be a global market leader, and the symbol of a country and a culture.

Showing: Ferreira Dona Antonia Tawny Port

Quinta do Crasto, which traces its roots back to the 17th century, was purchased by Constantino de Almeida, a partner in the Port house of Constantino, in 1910. ln 1981, Constantino de Almeida’s granddaughter Leonor (“Tita”) and her husband Jorge Roquette took over the Quinta, determined to restore and revitalize the family estate. Following the change in Portuguese law (allowing single quintas to bottle and export wine), Crasto has been producing and exporting table and port wines since 1994. The perseverance and commitment of the Roquette family has restored Quinta do Crasto to its rightful status as one of the great family estates of the Douro.

Johns Bio:

A native of Iowa, John came to California to pursue a career in the wine business beginning as a cellar worker for a large central valley winery. He later went into the sales and distribution side of the business working for a central coast wine distributor. John then moved to Napa Valley and spent many years at Franciscan winery selling a number of brands under this portfolio. John has been in the role as National Sales Director at Dutton Goldfield for the past seven years.

Samantha Bio:

Samantha Straw is a Fine Wine Portfolio Manager for Ruby Wines who has been in the food and beverage industry for over 20 years. She has a passion for knowledge and has achieved 2 levels of Sommelier certification from the International Sommelier Guild, the Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) designation from the Society of Wine Educators, and the Sake Adviser Certification from the Sake School of America. When not at work, she spends her time with her husband and two children.

                      Decoding American Wine Labels

Many people buy wines based on label only. Do you? In this valuable class we’ll explain all the truths and lies on an American wine label. Knowing this information will help you get more value for your money, understand how to figure out if a wine is a generic commercial wine or a hand-made artisanal bottling, and clues to what it’s going to taste like. After this event buying wine will never be the same!

                                 Thursday, December 7

               Decoding European Wine Labels

OK, so you understand an American wine label, but European labelling follows an entirely different set of rules, and can be confusing and intimidating. We’ll walk you through the method behind French, Italian, Spanish, and German labels, and help you understand what they’re telling you. You’ll leave with the confidence to buy that bottle of Bordeaux or Spatlese!

French Wine Scholar Classes (FWS)

Wine Scholat Guild

Vinitas WineWorks LLC, Tri-County Adult Education, and Franklin Liquors are excited to announce the Fall session of the French Wine Scholar Certification program!

Now you don’t have to go to Boston for this world-class French wine course! Set yourself apart from your peers and specialize in the wines of France. Gain the confidence to taste, sell, and speak meaningfully about all aspects of French wine, from Champagne to Bordeaux and everything in between. Pass the exam and earn the title French Wine Scholar and FWS post-nominal.

Developed by the Wine Scholar Guild with the support of the French Ministry of Agriculture, this specialization program is designed for advanced students of wine, whether professionals or serious wine hobbyists. This is NOT an introductory wine class; students should have professional wine experience or previous classroom study. Students must be familiar with the concepts of viticulture and vinification, major grape varieties, wine regions, and wine styles from across the globe, and have experience tasting wine in a formal setting.

Location: Franklin Liquors, 363 E. Central Street, Franklin MA
