This Week at Swirl Wine Bar + Market
A Very Special Friday Free For All with Susie Selby
Susie Selby. A veteran of Sonoma wine production for more than 20 years, her name is synonymous with award winning, high quality, handmade wines. Her winemaking style imparts an elegance to her full bodied reds and classic whites which she makes using the best fruit Sonoma has to offer from the Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys.
Susie loves New Orleans and our beloved Saints, in fact immediately after the BP oil spill she created the Clean Coast label, offering four Sonoma County wines with images of Gulf wildlife on the labels and proceeds went to support our local seafood industry and protect our coast.
We are super excited to be a stop during her visit this weekend so we're pulling out the good stuff this Friday! She'll be pouring 5 Selby Wines including her Old Vine Zin, Sonoma Cab, Sonoma Syrah, Russian River Chardonnay and Sonoma County Sauv Blanc, all wines retailing between $18-$30. Five great wines poured by a really special winemaker with a soft spot for the Big Easy.
"Wine is life. My father taught me that wine is an incredible combination of art, science and nature. I learned after he died that wine holds a special place for celebration, love and life. It has been cherished, admonished and revered as it has held a unique significance throughout the world’s history. I am privileged to be a winemaker and proud to present my wine in honor of my father.
Enjoy wine; enjoy life. " ~ Susie Selby
