The Santa Clarita Valley Boys & Girls Club is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its annual Wine Tasting Event, “One October Night”, on Wednesday, October 15, 2014, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Salt Creek Grille, located at 24415 Town Center Drive, Valencia. The Club is excited that the featured winery is Martinelli Winery, a stalwart of the Sonoma County wine region. Representing Martinelli is its President, Julianna Martinelli. Julianna will be pouring an impressive list of wines:
2009 Bella Vigna Chardonnay
2011 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
2012 Bondi Home Ranch Pinot Noir
2009 Zio Tony Ranch Syrah
2011 Velutini Ranch Zinfandel
2012 Giuseppe & Luisa Zinfandel
2012 Jackass Hill Muscat of Alexandria
Martinelli’s wines are world-renown. For instance, Wine Spectator enthused that Martinelli has “an impressive collection of Zinfandels and Pinot Noirs, but shines with Chardonnay.” Robert Parker gushes, “The wines are always full-bodied, expressive offerings that never cheat the consumer on flavor intensity or personality…The Martinelli Syrahs are all stunning wines.”
Featured along with the wines are specially prepared tapas-styled dishes prepared by Tamra Levine, catering chef for Salt Creek. The cost is only $75 per person and includes both the wine tasting and the paired food servings. All of the proceeds go to the Boys & Girls Club, as Salt Creek owner, Greg Amsler, donates both the food and the wait staff, while hosts Carl and Terry Kanowsky cover any other expenses incurred.
People can also call the Club at 661-254-3063 to get tickets.
