ESS Dinner with Rob Sinskey of Sinskey Vineyards Dinner, May 22nd at 7pm

We love Rob Sinskey.  He’s one of those renegade types.  He has been breaking with the Napa norm for a quite a while, first by growing Bordeaux grapes like Cabernet and Merlot in the cool, breezy climate of Los Carneros, and later by planting Alsatian varieties like Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Muscat on a single windblown hillside called Scintilla Sonoma.  His wines are always stunning, and he is a cool dude, so we are excited to have him here May 22nd for a rare, personal appearance.
