This year marks Doug Nalle's 30th vintage. He began his wine career as the very first cellar worker hired at Château Souverain, and continued honing his skills at Jordan Vineyards, Quivira Vineyards and others. In 1984 Nalle began making his own wine. Today, Nalle Winery produces 2,000 cases of wine each year with the help of his wife, Lee, and sons Andrew and Sam (who you'll also find behind the Jimtown Store counter during summer vacations!). Come meet the Nalle family and taste their celebrated wines, along with tasty Jimtown nibbles.

Make a date with friends to meet in the heart of Alexander Valley to enjoy good company, fine wine and tasty nibbles, at one of the prettiest crossroads in the county.

Enjoy a glass of Unti Wine as we celebrate autumn in the Alexander Valley at Jimtown Store! We will feature complimentary food pairings with the finely crafted wines from Dry Creek Valley's Unti Vineyards. Buy a glass of wine and enjoy free Jimtown nibbles!

Thursday November 7th from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m.

You will be treated to all of Unti's latest releases:

2000 Syrah   Their most flamboyant Syrah to date, according to Mick Unti

2000 Zinfandel   bright, fruity and spicy, a classic Dry Creek Zin!

2000 Segromigno   a medium bodied blend of Sangiovese & Syrah

   Paired with   

Jimtown Fig & Olive with Point Reyes Blue Crostini

Chipotle Pumpkin Empanadas

Jimtown Spiced Olives

Dates stuffed with Vella Mezzo Secco cheese

Leek & Roasted Red Pepper Paté

The Untis bought their 21-acre vineyard in 1990. Going against Dry Creek Valley's "norm" of planting Zinfandel grapes, George Unti planted Syrah and Sangiovese. Why? Because the Unti family enjoys Tuscan and Rhone style wines, with deep colors, intense fruit and spice flavors. Dry Creek's Mediterranean climate was a perfect match for these grapes, and the Untis have become one of the "pioneers" in planting new and interesting varietals, (although they also followed suit and planted good, old Zinfandel, too!). They've been making wine professionally since 1997, starting with 2,000 cases, and growing to 4,200 in the 2000 vintage. Come meet the Unti family and enjoy their wonderful wines with us!
