September 3rd, 2015 @ 4:30 PM - TASTE IT THURSDAY featuring: Mission Trail Cider + Mad Otter Ale + Wrath Wines all will be tasting right here at TWM
Mission Trail Cider, Bradley, CA - Growing up in the vineyards of Sonoma County and surrounded by the entrepreneurial wine making spirit from birth, Monte and Victor Jones had farming, and wine making in their blood. After growing up on the historic El Camino Real, they both left to pursue different careers; Monte as an Army Cavalry Officer and on to business school, Victor to Austin, Texas where he hand-built some of the most recognizable bars, restaurants, and nightclubs. The brothers, realizing that something was missing, made their way back to the mission trail and began developing their own vineyard and orchards down the road from Mission San Antonio in Southern Monterey County.
Mad Otter Ale, Monterey, CA - Our story of Monterey Bay Brewing Company began at the Mammoth Mountain Blues and Brews festival. Mark camped and went to the two day event and experienced how everyone was going Mad over craft beer. Scott and Mark went the next year as well and this is when they knew they wanted to bring this kind of energy and excitement for craft beer to Monterey. Scott and Mark started to homebrew out of their kitchens and it was one early evening on the golf course that the name Mad Otter Ale sprang into Mark’s head and from that point on we knew we had something special.
Wrath Wines, Santa Lucia Highlands, CA - Wrath produces site-driven Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, and Sauvignon Blanc from our estate vineyard and respected properties in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Our production is small, our distribution is limited and our wines reveal attitude, passion, and an inherent respect for what a vineyard can give us.
