Popup Event: Ehret Family Wines @ 6p.m.

April 15, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


In 1996, Pierre Ehret established Bavarian Lion Vineyards in Knights Valley, planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. The vineyards are 400-800 feet in elevation in the foothills of Mount St. Helena. Ehret sold the high-quality fruit to premier wineries in Sonoma County. In 2005, he made the first vintages for his own label. The renowned Alex Vyborny has been the vineyard manager since inception. He set up the vineyard plan with 35% of the property under vine and 65% as natural wilderness. All farming is now sustainable and all energy comes from solar and irrigation is provided with collected rain water. In 2014, Erin Green was hired as consulting winemaker. She has consulted for Bryant Family, Pahlmeyer, Colgin, and Martinelli. The 2015 vintage was the first under her helm.

The 2015 Vintage
2015 was the fourth and final year of drought for California. The dry winter kicked off the growing season to a very early start. Flowering and fruit set were impeded somewhat, but the long, dry, often hot summer ripened the fruit perfectly. Harvest went smoothly and under excellent weather. Yields were way down but that resulted in remarkably dense, plush fruit flavors and aromas.
