Lake County Wine Studio will host a wine tasting with Obsidian Ridge Vineyards this week.
The event will take place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3, and from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4, at the studio, located at the studio, 9505 Main St. in Upper Lake.
Lake County Wine Studio will pour a $10 sampler of their much-acclaimed Obsidian Ridge Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon paired with appetizers.
Obsidian Ridge has gained high praise from respected reviewers from wine publications, including Wine Spectator, The Wine Enthusiast, SF Chronicle, Food & Wine, as well as wine advocate Robert Parker. It also has a rapidly expanding fan base among Lake County locals.
Winemakers Michael Terrien and Peter Molnar will be at the Wine Studio on Friday evening to meet with guests and share the history of Obsidian Ridge Wines, the fine characteristics imparted by the 100-percent Kádár Hungarian Oak barrels they use from the Molnar family-owned cooperage, and the elevation of wines in Lake County.
On display at the event will be the artwork of local artist, Gail Salituri.
A 2009 Stars of Lake County award winner as well as a humanitarian and philanthropist, wine studio owner Susan Feiler called Salituri “one of Lake County's finest assets.”
Works by Salituri, who operates her own gallery in Lakeport with the help of her daughter Sheri, will be on display at the wine studio for the month of October.
With an eye for both the obvious and hidden beauty of her chosen subjects, Salituri has established herself as one of California's rising artists. Working exclusively in oils, she superbly depicts many of the Golden State's natural, cultural and architectural treasures.
Missions, courtyards, gardens, vineyards and wineries are among Salituri's many specialties. Each one reflects her artistic vision, as well as a love and appreciation of beautiful places and scenes she wishes to share. Her enchanting scenes are vibrant in color, yet serene in their peacefulness, a combination that has won her increasing notice and acclaim in the art world.
