La Quinta Cliffhouse & Pacifica Seafood Restaurant Virtual Wine Tasting
La Quinta Cliffhouse Grill and Bar & Pacifica Seafood Restaurant are excited to launch a new monthly Wine Tasting Event. In partnership with Cork & Saber, a concierge wine retailer that focuses on family owned wineries. Each month, we will offer our virtual guests a carefully procured selection of wines that are small production, limited availability, and best represent the areas where they are grown.
The virtual wine tasting will be available to our guests who can taste these amazing wines from the comfort of their home with suggested pairings from the Cliffhouse & Pacifica Seafood restaurant menus. The wine tasting will be an educational tour of the wines, wineries, and areas where they come from. We will include some fun education on how to best experience wines, taste like a professional, share some fun stories and have time for Q&A.
Here is how it works:
~We will send out an email the first week of the month, inviting you to sign up for the Cork & Saber Virtual Tasting event exclusive to Cliffhouse and Pacifica Seafood Restaurant guests.
~Sign ups will be available that week, until Friday at 3pm PSTThe following week, your Tasting Package (Wine, Info, Menu Suggestions, info to dial in) will be shipped to your home (CA, OR, WA, NV). If you live in the valley, you can choose shipment or pick-up from 11-2pm at Cliffhouse on a October 17th.
~The following week, on Tuesday (this month October 20th) we will hold the Cork & Saber Exclusive Guest Tasting. You can join us on the Zoom call and enjoy the wines by themselves, create your own meal or charcuterie, or order from the suggested menu from Cliffhouse TakeOut or Pacifica Seafood TakeOut.
~Following the tasting, if you loved the wines, you will have the opportunity to order bottles and cases at an exclusive discount just for you. We will ship the wines (CA, OR, WA, NV) or you can pick them up at Cliffhouse, on October 27th, the following week.
We are excited to offer this virtual tasting for our guests to enjoy new and unique wine selections, while safely entertaining in the comfort of your home.
For our inaugural tasting we have selected Sandhi Winery from Santa Rita Hills, CA. Sandhi is a small production California winery focusing on select vineyards from the Sta. Rita Hills in Santa Barbara County. Sandhi was founded in 2010 by Rajat Parr, the wine director for Michael Mina Restaurants, and winemaker, Sashi Moorman of Stolpman Vineyards. Sandhi represents a union essential to the production of wine: the collaboration between man, earth, and vine. The willing participation of all three elements is necessary to make great wine, and the winegrower must make this collaboration rich and nourishing for all involved. An understanding of these joint efforts informs Sandhi’s exploration of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines throughout the Santa Barbara County terroir.
Special Price: $75 + Tax (Includes Shipping)
Normal Retail Value: $100
This offering includes two wines: one bottle each of Sandhi Chardonnay & Sandhi Pinot Noir, Wine Descriptions, menu suggestions, and a virtual wine tasting with Aaron Driver, Owner & Sommelier of Cork & Saber and a representative from the winery.
Tasting will be held on Tuesday October 20th at 6:30pm Via Zoom Call. Orders must be placed by Tuesday, October 13th .
We are excited to share this experience with you and hope to see you “on the call”.
