"The wines of La Clarine are defiant and different, and are helping torewrite the story of the Sierras."
- Jon Bonné, SF Chronicle
"La Clarine makes wines that are alive in the glass. I love their minimalist approach in the vineyard and the cellar, and I've loved every single one of their wines."
-Eric Asimov, New York Times
"Is someone else doing anything as insanely stupid as we are?"
-Hank Beckmeyer of La Clarine
Tonight at Elmwood! We're pouring the utterly ineffable & mostly implausible wines of everyone's favorite ex-punk rock bassist turned natural winemaker, Hank Beckmeyer of La Clarine.
The electrifying Petit Manseng (one of Dan's favorite Californian whites) and his Spain-assaulting Albariño. His "Piedi Grandi"(Nebbiolo/Mourvedre), his "Funky Drummer" (Syrah/Grenache/Counoise) and his famed "Sumu Kaw" Syrah, possibly the highest-elevation Syrah in all the vinous world!
Some of these wines are hard to get. All of them are amazing expressions of one of the best (and most undersung) pieces of Californian terroir.
The Wines of La Clarine.
With Chris Scanlan in the House!
