As we all are getting ready to have a (hopefully) fun and delicious holiday weekend let’s take time to remember all those who paid the ultimate price so we can enjoy our way of life.

Charlie Tsegoletos’ parents are of Greek and Italian origin, so it was inevitable he would find his passion in the world of wine, specifically winemaking. He has made wine for some of the biggest wineries in California, and also some rather small wineries. Since 2000, he has been head of winemaking at Cline Cellars.

Our staff has had the privilege to taste wine with Tsegoletos several times over the years and I have found him to be the most unpretentious person making wine in Sonoma County. Fred Cline provides Tsegoletos with grapes from Sonoma County, Contra Costa County and Lodi with which he crafts user friendly wines of unusual value. Cline’s Viognier, with its citrus and stone fruit flavors, has just won some major awards in competitions in California. Their Sonoma Syrah is loaded with berry flavors and ready to be your grillin’ buddy! This week you can get both of these for as little as $9.

Fred and Nancy Cline donate a portion of the profits from the sale of their Cashmere Red Blend to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a non-profit research organization. To date they have raised over $270,000. The Cashmere Red is smooth and rich and has been a customer favorite for years. The Ancient Vine Zinfandel is the perfect match for BBQ ribs with a tangy sauce or a holiday sunset. Come in and try these wines this Saturday between 1pm and 4pm.
