Chris Brocway of Broc Cellars and Broadside Wines
Party – Bar Night
Wednesday, April 21, 2010
4:30pm – 7:30pm
ferry Plaza Wine Merchant
Join us Wednesday, April 21st, from 4:30-7:30pm, when we welcome Chris Brockway of Broc Cellars & Broadside Wines to our Wine Bar. Broc Cellars was nothing more than an idea not that long ago about making wines that were “site specific”. Where the wines true character came from using only sustainably, organically, or biodynamically grown grapes from areas that most would consider marginal climates. Broc Cellars’ focus is primarily on Rhone varietals with a little Petite Sirah thrown in for fun. Broadside Wines combines the talents of winemakers Chris Brockway of Broc Cellars and Brian Terrizzi of Giornata with the same non-intervention philosophy as Broc Cellars. They harvest at lower sugars, employ native fermentation and use little to no new oak. In other words, they let the wine shine through and taste as it was intended. We love that concept! Broadside specializes in clean, pure wines that are reasonably priced, made for drinking, not collecting. Right on!

We know you will enjoy meeting this dedicated winemaker and you won’t want to miss this opportunity to taste through this distinctive lineup of some of the cleanest, tastiest wines around. So come join us and help us welcome Chris Brockway to the Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant. It promises to be a memorable tasting of truly delicious and righteous wines. Just as his wines are reasonably priced, this tasting is truly a bargain, particularly for the quality of wines in the bottle. Chris has once again proven himself the champion of pricing sanity. Thank you.
