The Withers is a new project focusing on high elevation, cool climate sites that yield exceptional, nuanced and balanced wines drawing from Rhone varietals grown in the Sierra Foothills and Mendocino County, as well as Pinot Noir grown in the Anderson and Green Valleys and the Sonoma Coast.
The Withers was founded by Andrew Tow, a longtime collector and advocate of food friendly, understated, lower alcohol yet deeply flavorful wines, and features as its winemaker David Low, co-founder and winemaker at highly acclaimed Anthill Farms Winery. "The Withers" is an equestrian term honoring Andrew’s wife’s passion for horses, which is defined as the place from which a horse’s height is measured.The wines include single vineyard and blended expressions of well respected sites, all farmed responsibly and with minimal ecological impact. The Withers draws from David Low’s excellent relationships with growers in high demand and at the top of their fields, literally and figuratively, and Andrew’s relationships on the business side.Andrew leads us through an exciting array of micro production, food-friendly wines perfect for your Thanksgiving table and any upcoming holiday celebration!Featured Wines:2018 The Withers Rosé, El Dorado58% Grenache, 40% Mourvèdre, 2% Cinsault-2750 cases made2018 The Withers Chardonnay Peters Vineyard Sonoma Coast570 cases made

Bordeaux is among the axioms of the wine world, emulated by upstart regions around the globe. Classic and ageworthy, whether from the Medoc, where Cabernet Sauvignon is king, to the other side of the river, where Merlot rules the roost (with the invaluable assistance of Cabernet Franc).
Line-up TBD!Learn More
Gordon's, and Taylor Whisky Co. are proud to announce an epic 3-part seminar series, The Whisky Battles where your favorite distilleries go head to head!
Pablo says: It brings me double pleasure hosting these seminars with Nick Taylor: on one hand, I admire his knowledge of the distilling process and his never-ending supply of whisky stories; on the other hand, I usually have fun with him. That's why we came up with three blind tastings that will feature single malt battles. Nick and I will discuss why we think one or the other distillery or expression is better, then, a panel of expert tasters (a.k.a. "you") will decide which one wins!
Nick says: It brings me triple pleasure hosting these seminars with Pablo. First, I love blind tastings because the sensory experience of whisky is almost always clouded by the brand name and what expectations we have based on who made the whisky and where it came from. Blind tastings negate that effect. Second, whisky battles are a blast because they give you an opportunity to explore the nuances of what you like in a concentrated and focused way. And third, Pablo is a delightful human being and I plan on crushing him with my whisky intellect! Mooohahaha!
Disclaimer: each distillery is represented by three contenders. Both Pablo and Nick will lineup three battles and share some information about the distilleries and expressions. Tasters won’t know which of the six expressions they are trying, until all battles are finished. Taking notes is highly suggested.
Series I: Glenmorangie vs. anCnoc ($15.00)
Tuesday, November 19th from 7:00-8:30PM
Two distilleries from the Highlands. On one hand, Glenmorangie, famous for one of the tallest stills in Scotland to create a more delicate, balanced whisky with light to moderate viscosity. For many, Glenmorangie 10 Original is the entry level single malt by excellence, and their die-hard fans are always excited about annual limited editions. On the other hand, anCnoc, from Knockdhu distillery, is a lesser-known distillery that focuses on fermentation and the use of old school condensers to produce a bold fruity whisky with stunning citrus notes and an ethereal oily texture on the palate. It’s most common comparison is Glenmorangie!Featuring:
Glenmorangie: Quinta Ruban 14, Allta and 18yo
anCnoc: 12yo, 2002 and 18yo
Series II: Balvenie vs. Balblair ($15.00)
Tuesday, December 10th from 7:00-8:30PM
Two of the most praised distilleries from Scotland's Speyside and Highlands go to battle as each reflect the utmost dedication to their whole range of expressions. On one hand, Balvenie, one of the few still using floor malting and with single barrel editions in a core range. Those who visited the distillery know that everything is about the details with no rush. On the other hand, Balblair is one of the few distilleries that do not require their distillery manager to make quota (produce a certain amount of volume) at the expense of quality. The fermentation is long. The distillation is slow and the aging is extensive. Balblair is the epitome of time equals quality.
Balvenie: DoubleWood 12yo DoubleWood 17yo, Single Barrel 15yo
Balblair: 2005, 1999, 1989
Series III: Bunnahabhain vs. Old Pulteney ($15.00)
Tuesday, December 17th from 7:00-8:30PM
On one corner of this sea monsters battle between Islay and Coastal Highland we have Bunnahabhain, responsible for one of the mildest whiskies of Islay, but still with an imposing influence of sea air and occasional, subtle use of peat. They know how to take advantage of oak for the most spectacular finishes and a rich, earthy, creamy flavor in their not-so-basic core range. On the other hand, Old Pulteney, mythical creature of a fishermen town is known for its unique location, quirky stills and its distinctive warehouses. While most salty, oily whiskies get their maritime character from the peat they burn, Old Pulteney gets it from its location and warehousing, meaning all the ocean character and none of the smoke.
Bunnahabhain: Stiuireadair, 12yo, 18yo
Old Pulteney: Huddart, 12yo, 18yo
This 3-part series is a truly unique opportunity to revisit some old-time favorites side by side and rediscover the magic in them. We hope you join us and enjoy the experience as much as we will. Make sure you buy tickets for all 3 sessions to receive $5.00 off the total ticket price, and, receive 10% off event night purchases of all bottles from the featured distilleries.
