Winemaker Event Series Banner_Tessier.jpg

Later this month we continue our series of fun and casual wine dinners at Hopscotch with Tessier Winery on Thursday, July 26. We hosted our very first Winemaker Dinner with Kristie Tacey years ago, and as good as the juice was then, it has only gotten better! Kristie's scientist brain and her creative soul inspire her consistently lovely wines and we have always been a fan. No longer just a Pinot gal, her repertoire has expanded to Riesling, Viognier, Grenache, Cabernet Franc, and beyond. We are thrilled to share her latest releases as well as some library wines we've had cellared for a while. Chef Kyle will prepare a four-course dinner to pair with four of Kristie's wines - all for $58 per person. Reservations are now available online or by emailing jenny@hopscotchoakland.com.

Thursday, August 23 - Iconnu Wine’s Laura Brennan Bissel
Laura is one of our favorite winemakers in the California Natural Wine movement. She is making small amounts of beautiful wines with great attention to detail from the vineyard to the bottle. She is one who clarifies that natural wines need not be flawed wines. Hers are approachable, clean, elegant and alive. We will feature a four-course menu and four of Laura's wines for $58 per person. Join us for the evening to learn more about this young winemaker on the rise. 

Throughout this series we will do our best to keep the cost of these dinners low - we want anyone who’s interested to be able to join us and gather with these fresh faces of the wine industry. Despite that, at each dinner we will taste some wine that is rare or not currently available to the public.
