Join us at the Winery on April 24, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm, for this wonderful traditional event! We will attempt to bring the essence of Italy to Fresno State once again by featuring our Italian varietal wines, as well as giving guests an opportunity to do a barrel tasting. The delectable food will be catered by Sam's Italian Deli. Music will be provided by our campus radio station, KFSR.
We are proud to announce that our Classic Chardonnay took Silver Medal at the 2014 Lodi Consumer's Wine Awards this month! Our 2012 Legacy Classic Chardonnay was produced here at the Fresno State Winery to honor retired President John Welty. You can find it for purchase here in the online store, as well as at the Fresno State Farm Market. Please enjoy Fresno State wines responsibly.
This year we held our very first Winemaker's Dinner, and it was quite the success! 30 wine-lovers joined us at Bella Pasta for an evening of wine, food, and discussion. Two Enology students poured for the event, while our Winemaker, John Gianinni stood up and explained each food and wine pairing before it was tasted. Our spring intern, Alisha, who put together the whole event, was also there and received rave reviews. All together, it was a very enjoyable evening and fun was had by all!
Our next Winemaker's Dinners are tentatively planned for July and November, and we have some tantalizing venues in mind! Check out our Wine Club page and sign up in order to get exclusive invites and pre-sale tickets to those!
