Wine Wizard, Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon (Tasting #25)


Le Cigare Volant. One of my favorite labels ever. You would think it is a fun story till you see actual UFOs on youtube that are nothing but a huge cylinder. No wonder they called them flying cigars. Should be an interesting tasting

Join us Tuesday, September 22nd, (PLEASE NOTE SPECIAL NIGHT!!!) from 4:30-7:30pm, when we welcome Randall Grahm, President for Life at Bonny Doon Vineyard. We are thrilled to have this very special guest descending upon our fair shop from his own private Dooniverse. Yes, the madman himself from Bonny Doon Vineyard will be here to share his outrageous sense of humor, and penetrating insights regarding screw-cap love. In addition, to celebrate the release of his new book, Been Doon So Long, Randall will be signing copies and personalizing his Vinthology. The book will be on sale at the tasting for $34.95. Those of you who know him (or even know of him!) need no introduction, suffice it to say that it will be a wacky evening, and quite unlike anything the Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant has seen. The energy level and zaniness will be at an very high level. Plan to come early to secure a good seat. Randall is bringing a special selection of his classic Cigare Volant as well as some new releases of his Albarino and Cigare Blanc, a DEWN Nebbiolo along with a little dessert wine called Vinferno. It should prove to be a magical evening, or at least one of madcap merriment. Don’t miss it!

We know you won’t want to miss this opportunity to taste through an amazing array of delicious and highly affordable wines. So come on down and help us welcome this witty wine personality, Randall Grahm to Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant. It’s a Tasting Party!! AND IT IS ON A SPECIAL NIGHT, TUESDAY, NOT WEDNESDAY!!!!
