WHEN
Wednesday, August 19, 2020
5:00pm - 6:00pm


Join us for a guided wine tasting with Marimar Torres (Winery Founder/Owner) and Cristina Torres ’10 (Director of Sales and Marketing)

This virtual wine tasting offers both 2-bottle and 3-bottle options, showcasing a variety of wines from family-run Sonoma County winery Marimar Estate. Marimar and Cristina ’10 will give us an introduction to the winery, wine-by-wine tasting notes, information about the vineyards and methods used to produce the wines, and food pairing suggestions. There will be an opportunity for Q&A and discussion.

Marimar Estate is on the Woman-Owned Wineries directory (https://wowsonoma.com/) and is a certified sustainable winery. Marimar Torres grew up as a member of the Torres winemaking family in Spain, and opened Marimar Estate after moving to California in the 1970s. Now, her daughter, Cristina ’10, joins her as the generational transition becomes reality—the first time in the family from a mother to a daughter. To learn more about the winery, visit https://www.marimarestate.com/

In addition to giving our alumni access to a Wine Club-exclusive wine (the Blanc de Noirs), Marimar Estate will be offering significant discounts on shipping to all alumni regions co-hosting this tasting. Thanks to the Princeton Association of New York City (PANYC) and the Princeton Association of New England (PANE) for collaborating on this event with PCNC—we look forward to some bicoastal mingling and wine tasting!

WHEN
Wednesday August 19
5pm–6pm PDT (8pm–9pm EDT)

HOW WILL IT WORK?
You order either tasting option directly from Marimar Estate Winery’s website by the ordering deadline. The wines should arrive to you before August 19th so that you’re ready for the tasting! Prior to the tasting, Marimar Estate will email the Zoom link to you to use for the virtual tasting. We’ll all log onto that Zoom meeting at the same time on August 19th and go through a tasting like you would in person (i.e., learn about each wine one-by-one while tasting it). If you’d prefer to have your camera/microphone off, that’s okay, too! We’ll have opportunities for Q&A and discussion.

THE WINES

“The Summer Set” (2-bottle option, only white wine):

“The Full Tasting” (3-bottle option, 2 white + 1 red):

If you prefer to order by phone, you can call Alice at Marimar Estate Winery (707) 823-4365, x102.
