Celebrating the “Pearl Anniversary” with a Year’s Worth of Events
(HEALDSBURG, CALIFORNIA, January 2019) – Since 1989, family-owned Moshin Vineyards ̶ led by winemaker Rick Moshin ̶ has been producing natural, terroir-driven wines in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley. The year 2019 marks Moshin Vineyard’s 30th anniversary, and the gravity-flow winery will celebrate this milestone with a year’s worth of events at its Westside Road estate and beyond.
The symbol of the 30th anniversary is the pearl, and this will certainly be a pearl of a year for Moshin.
Participating for the first time in both Santa Barbara’s World of Pinot Noir and Oregon wine country’s International Pinot Noir Celebration, the winery will also pour once again at Healdsburg’s Pigs & Pinot this March, and at Colorado’s Taste of Vail this April. Moshin has been participating in Taste of Vail off and on since 2004.
Closer to home in late May, Moshin Vineyards is planning an on-site oyster feast designed to pair with Moshin’s not-yet-released 2014 Brut Rosé sparkling wine. There are only 95 cases of this delicious bubbly, and each bottle will feature a pearl-themed label for the 30th anniversary. A firm date for this feast will soon be announced, along with those for several other celebratory events.
Meanwhile, on the last Sunday of each month in 2019, Moshin’s tasting room will host an open-house reception. Some of these receptions, such as the one to be held on Sunday, January 27, 2019 from 12-4pm, will introduce the latest works by local Sonoma County artists; a new art exhibition will be on display at Moshin every three months.
Other Sunday open-houses will honor the three emerging writers (Emma Bushnell (February 17), Adam McHugh (March 31), and Dera Williams (April 28), all from 5:30-7pm) chosen by literary initiative Writing Between the Vines for 2019 residential retreats at Moshin. Still more receptions will serve simply as an opportunity for Moshin to say thank you to its loyal clientele and welcome new friends.
