Revolution Wines is celebrating the release of two new wines: their 2012 Albarino (a crisp white wine) and their 2011 Celeste (a red blend), on Saturday, July 27, 2013. There will be complimentary tastings starting at 12 p.m., and you can also purchase a special dish prepared by Chef Rachel that pairs with each wine. At 6 p.m. there will be live music on the patio. Anytime throughout the day or evening you can purchase bottles of the limited-run wines for $22 a bottle for the Albarino (only 150 cases were produced) and $30 a bottle for the Celeste (250 cases produced). Some notes on the wines, taken from descriptions found on their website (, are as follows: “[The Albarino] starts with orange blossom, honeysuckle and stone fruit on the nose. Tart green apple and apricot flood the palate with crisp acidity making for a long, clean finish.” On the 2011 Celeste: “A table wine with exceptional balance and structure. A lively bouquet of blackberry, cedar and violet gives long, lingering finish. We love this wine so much, it is named after our winemaker’s mother!” Revolution Wines is located at 2831 S Street. Visit or call (916) 444-7711 for their tasting room’s regular hours of operation.
