I Nonni and Sunfish Cellars invite you to join us for one of the many Tastings, Wine Classes or Dinners that allow us to showcase the undeniable relationship between food and wine. If you’d like to always be informed of these events please sign-up for our newsletter. We hope for the opportunity to serve you soon.
Join us Thursday, July 2nd, at 6:30pm for a Zoom tasting of three very special wines from Charles Krug Winery with co-host Peter Mondavi. Peter (together with his brother Marc) is a third-generation co-proprietor of Charles Krug Winery in Napa Valley in California. The grandson of Cesare and Rosa Mondavi, he has a degree in mechanical engineering from Stanford University as well as an MBA. Charles Krug includes nine estate vineyards on 850 acres (344 hectares) within Napa Valley and produces wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay. Peter’s father (Peter Mondavi Sr.) and his uncle (Robert) had worked together and separately in wine businesses, both of which helped to establish the reputation of Napa Valley wines throughout the world.
Thursday's tasting will include:
2018 Charles Krug Chardonnay, $15.99
The Carneros Napa Chardonnay shines with tropical fruit, citrus blossom, and pineapple aromas. A hint of vanilla precedes flavors of peach, brown sugar, and bright citrus. Vanilla returns with scents of oak leading to a long, supple finish. A classy wine to sip on its own, yet, as always, can be paired with an array of fish or fresh fowl.

2016 Charles Krug Merlot, $18.99
The Napa Valley Merlot has expressive aromas of ripe red and black fruit followed by hints of spice. Supple body and medium tannins envelop flavors of berry and cherry, which linger on the palate through a long, smooth finish.

2017 Charles Krug Cabernet Sauvignon, $24.99
Sourced principally from the five family estates in Yountville, the 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays black fruit aromas with hints of brown sugar and toffee. This medium bodied wine showcases a rich mélange of cherry, blackberry, and black currant flavors set against a beautifully integrated backdrop of lightly toasted oak, all leading to a smooth lingering finish.

Do you miss having a glass of wines with friends and loved ones during these trying times? We understand (we miss seeing you in the store and restaurant), but we have a solution and it's so simple! All you have to do is pick some friends, pick a day and time, pick some wines, and we'll do the rest so you can have a private, in-home(s), properly socially distancing personal wine tasting for you and your friends.
It's so easy!
- Pick a day other than Thursday and a time.
- Pick three bottles of wine from our website: https://sunfishcellars.com/collections/wine-2 or give our wine director some guidelines and we will select the wines for you (minimum total $75 for the three bottles).
- Pick at least nine friends (or nine couples, or nine groups of any size)
- Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the email address of each member of your group and the three wines you have selected.
Once it's set up, have each member of your group pick up their three bottles prior to the tasting and follow along with our wine director Hoyt as he tastes the wines in a systematic, professional manner. Learn about grape varieties you may not have tasted before, or about wine regions you may not be familiar with! And, most of all, have fun doing it!
We will create a Zoom conference and you can enjoy the tasting conducted by our wine director from the comfort of your home, while staying safe!
You can even pick up a cheese and olive platter to enjoy with the tasting: https://sunfishcellars.com/products/catering-cheeseandoliveplatter
