2012 AV Pinot Festival Open House & Club Party

The Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Festival is one of our biggest weekends of the year. Besides the fact that I chaired the festival and organized all the press visits and tastings, Foursight hosts a big open house and wine club party on the Sunday of the event each year. It makes for four days of crazy business, but in a great way.

This year we decided to splurge and order fresh oysters and an entire leg of prosciutto to serve everyone at our open house. We poured our new, 2011 Vin Gris of Pinot Noir and 2010 Clone 05 Pinot Noir, alongside our current releases (and a vertical of Pinot Noirs).

Many of our regular club members, friends and family attended; we always love seeing them. Helping us was cousin Becca, uncles Tom & Scott, brothers Tim & Matt, and friends Jimmy, Linda & Erik. A BIG thanks to them for their help.

Ozzie the winery dog spent the entire day trolling for prosciutto scraps, then laying in the sun. He was a very happy dog.

Here are some images from our open house on Sunday. If you missed it this year, then don't next year! And come early. The oysters ran out pretty quickly.

We had SO MUCH fun! The oysters were awesome, as were the wines, of course. We'll make sure to get there at 11 a.m. again next year!!
