The Calling Wine Taste With Food Pairing

July 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Experience the wines of The Calling and experience the spirit of Sonoma paired with hors d’oeuvres by Bailey’s head chef, Chef Karl. The cool fog rolling into the Russian River Valley. The salty ocean breeze washing over the Sonoma Coast. The rugged hills cradling Alexander Valley. From soil to glass, The Calling wines could only come from one place, Sonoma.

Bailey’s General Store will be hosting The Calling Wine Tasting on July 21, Thursday at 6:00 pm at the Captiva Civic Association, 11550 Chaplin Lane. Join our guest speakers Pablo Pelaez, Sales Manager South Florida & Eric Narvaez, District Manager of Brittany Sales Company, for a 7-series The Calling Wine Tasting, showcasing the best of Sonoma.
Their passion for Sonoma and the family growers are what drives The Calling. Their dedication to the craft of winemaking defines them. The joy that results as The Calling wine is shared among friends, enjoyed over a festive meal, or toasted to celebrate is what motivates them.

Pablo and Eric will be joining Bailey’s Wine Steward, Calli Johnson, to present this spectacular line-up: 2019 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay, 2019 Dutton Ranch Chardonnay, 2016 Sullivan Vineyard Chardonnay, 2019 Russian River Pinot Noir, 2019 Fox Den Vineyard Pinot Noir, 2018 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, 2018 ‘Our Tribute’ Cabernet Sauvignon

Their winemaker, James MacPhail pursued his dream to become a winemaker in the mid-1990s, mentored by some of Sonoma Country’s most respected winemakers and growers. Through this experience, he honed his craft focusing on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay sourced from the Sonoma Coast and Anderson Valley.

“I like the fact that their winemaker prefers to let the grapes speak for themselves. James’s mandate is to work with the best fruit the region can offer and treat it honorably, with classic, exacting winemaking,” says Calli Johnson of Bailey’s General Store.
