This Tuesday, August 20th, we at Vendome are tasting Enegren Brewery! Founded in 2010, Enegren Brewing Company is an independently owned craft brewery located in Moorpark, CA – Ventura County. The company – founded by and a passion for good beer, Chris & Matt Enegren and Joe Nascenzi – focuses on German-Inspired beers, with a heavy emphasis on lager-style beers.
Beer Tasting starts at 6 PM
On Wednesday, August 21st, we are tasting St. George Gins! A barrel-aged expression of St. George Dry Rye Gin. Rested in French and American oak wine casks, it has a lovely copper-pink hue and a deep, rich flavor that we think of as an offering to the gods of gin, whiskey, and wine!
St. George rested their Dry Rye Gin in French and American oak wine casks that previously held Grenache rosé, Syrah, and Tannat. Because unaged rye is the base spirit of their Dry Rye Gin, it lent itself beautifully to some time in barrel. The barrels came from local Blacksmith Cellars, run by winemaker Matt Smith—brother of St. George head distiller Dave Smith.
Gin Tasting starts at 6 PM.
Finally, on Thursday, August 22nd, we are having a Spanish Sparkling Cava Tasting! Cava is made the same way that Champagne is produced, but with different grapes. Let’s find out what Cava is and what makes it unique. You’ll be surprised to know that Cava is far closer to Champagne (in terms of taste) than Prosecco.
