I thought it was time for another sneak peek at what is going on at Cheers @ All Corked Up. They are still working on finalizing things and establishing a grand opening date, but in the meantime they are hard at work on the menu and wine list. With the assistance of the Santa Clarita Valley’s very own Vic Herstein, here are just some of the planned wine list selections…
Veuve Cliquot Yellow Label
Caymus Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon
Groth Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon
Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon
Mollydooker Shiraz The Boxer
Ferrari Carano Fume Blanc
Joseph Phelps Insignia
Chateau Montelena Napa Cabernet and Chardonnay
Seghesio Old Vine Zinfandel
Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay
Sextant Wheelhouse Night Watch
Ken Brown Pinot Noir
Sea Smoke Pinot Noir
Tobin James Ballistic Zinfandel
Turley Old Vine
Opolo Mountain Zinfandel
Cass Paso Robles Grenache
As I said, the above list is partial and definitely not final, and they are planning to increase the number of selections from Spain, Argentina, and Chile, as they are perfect complements to the Latin American food that will be served along with the classic dishes planned.
There will also be an extensive selection of beers and sparkling wines. [Chef Carolyn has promised me a saber demonstration for the first bottle of sparkling wine I have at Cheers!]
And other good news – For those of you who stopped taking taxis due to the long wait at the end of the evening, Cheers will have an on-call service in place that promises to get you home quickly and safely.
Counting the days…
