How about a dozen rosés for your "crush" this Valentines Day?

What could be better than a sparkling wine named “Endless Crush” for a Valentine’s Gift to your beloved? Like the still Rosé I first made in 2004, this wine celebrates our “Endless Crush”. Our 25th wedding anniversary in 2009 was the perfect occasion to create the first Inman Family Brut Rosé Nature sparkling wine made from our Olivet Grange Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir. Since releasing in November it has sold very quickly and with just a few cases left, you might want to indulge!

This wine has a luscious mousse and a very fine bead. The color is the palest of pinks. The nose has all of the hallmarks of Olivet Grange fruit, including hints of fresh citrus, strawberry, tart cherry and brioche, a bright core of acid along with a rich mouthfeel and long finish showing great minerality that leaves a clean, crisp palette impression.

We’ve created a special "Bouquet of Rosés" for spoiling the one you love. Single ($56), a Pair ($100) or a Full Dozen Rosés ($588).

You can order your "arrangement" by emailing, phoning us in the Tasting Room, 707-293-9576 or ordering online. We’d also be happy to place a special gift card with your order.


If you are looking for a little decadence look no further… indulge in Chocolate Unwrapped written by my friend, Sarah Jane Evans MW. Sarah Jane is a wine and food writer and broadcaster in England. This book and the chocolates Sarah Jane and her daughter Seraphina (who works at a wonderful chocolate shop, Rococo, in Mayfair, London) have shared with me have enlightened my senses and opened my eyes to a new passion.

51YEQiYmkfL. SL500 AA300  Inman Family UpdateI’ve been intrigued by the similarities of the process of wine and chocolate making/tasting – specifically the farm to bar producers. Chocolate has amazing complexities and each growing region has a unique terroir which expresses itself in the flavor profiles. Like fine wine, there are many attributes that affect the final product: the types of cacao beans, the percentage of cocoa solids, the region where the beans were grown, and the timing and manner of roasting and drying methods. Like grapes, the cacao pods are influenced by the terroir, and the acid, tannin and finish are described in vocabulary familiar to the wine lover. Everything from rain, sun, and soil conditions can greatly impact the rich and complex flavors of chocolate. So you can see how a winemaker or wine lover can be easily seduced into a chocolate affair.

The book is a must have guide for chocolate connoisseurs and foodies alike. A growing interest in sustainable farming and organic practices have increased consumers standards for higher quality products. For those seeking a cut above, Chocolate Unwrapped will guide you through different chocolate varieties and tips on tasting the delicate nuances of a different class of chocolate.

To read more about Sarah Jane Evans MW visit the Academy of Choclate website. Her book is available here. Also, enjoy this delicious recipe compliments of our neighbors at Zazu the restaurant: Cocoa Nib Caponata. A wonderful pairing with an Inman Pinot Noir.
