For our first wine dinner of 2017 we are excited to introduce Hank Beckmeyer of La Clarine Farms.  Hank and his wife Caro founded La Clarine Farms in 2001 on about 10 acres of land at 2600 feet in the Sierra Foothills, California.  Their approach to farming and wine making, as well as the wines that result, have drawn a big following for such a small operation and a good amount of media attention.  They work very naturally in the vineyard and the cellar and produce wines that are unique to their site, very expressive and delicious. 

They produce a wide range of wines in tiny quantities.  Many of their wines are unlikely and unconventional blends of grapes that retain their unity and uniqueness.  We will be preparing a unique menu to compliment these tremendous wines and look forward to a wonderful evening with Hank.  The wines to be poured are:
