On Feb. 7, the Blue Wing Saloon and Café, located next door to the Tallman Hotel in Upper Lake, will launch a new series of monthly “Meet the Winemaker” evenings.
These events extend the Blue Wing’s focus on offering its patrons the best wines produced in Lake County.
The Winemaker Evenings will be held on the first Thursday of each month from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The evenings will allow restaurant patrons to taste a wide variety of wines and meet some of the most notable winemakers in the area.
The saloon kitchen staff will work closely with the winemakers each evening to produce special dishes that properly compliment the wines being featured.
On Thursday, Feb. 7, winemaker Matt Hughes of Zoom Wines will kick off the series. Zoom is a Lake County Zinfandel specialist whose wines have been big sellers at the Saloon since its opening in June 2005. Matt is also winemaker for the Blue Wing Sauvignon Blanc (Bennett Vineyards) and Blue Wing Syrah (Obsidian Ridge Vineyards) as well as the popular Blue Wing house Chardonnay and Cabernet. He is currently chairman of the Lake County Winery Association.
