California is home to 75% of the countries wine production. Much of it from large corporate wineries producing inexpensive commodity wines. A select few are small and unique, individual or family operated wineries known as Boutique Wineries. These are hand-crafted wines from small producers using natural farming and they don't make much. They are award-winning, artisanal, small-run, limited-production and hand-crafted! Often they make wines from the grapes they grow and use organic and sustainable practices. We will sample several wines from California Boutique Wineries from Sonoma County to the Sierra Foothills and California's Central Coast.

Because these wines are from such small production wineries, they hard to find and often expensive. We have found a group of wines including, Sparkling, Chardonnay, Rosé, Rhône Varieties, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and more!

This is the perfect place for wine beginners to learn about wine and why it can be a life long, enjoyable experience. Experienced wine lovers can also benefit by using this evening to brush up on their wine knowledge and tasting skills. There is always something to learn about wine. The Beanery Cafe will serve an assortment of appetizers with the wines. All wines are served in Riedel stemware. No product purchase is required. You do not have to be a member of the Northern Lights Wine Club to attend any wine event at the Beanery Cafe.
