News From Our New Wine Tasting Room in Saratoga, CA

Michaud Vineyard Wines

Our tasting room is finally open for business and may we just say that the city of Saratoga is very excited about that as they strive to make Saratoga a wine destination.  We’re more than happy to do our part of course.  Picture yourself relaxing our our patio, thoroughly enjoying Michaud Vineyard and Martella wines as you take in the lovely views and watch the world go by.  The breeze blows softly, the muted sounds of conversations fill the air.  You’re lulled into this feeling of utter contentment and are so relaxed you’re not compelled to move for hours.  It’s just too lovely and satisfying.  Since we took this photo, we’ve added large red umbrellas to our patio and soon we’ll be serving small plates to pair with our wines.  And we have Wi-Fi!  What a perfect way to spend an afternoon!  Come on by – we’re waiting for you!

Just A Bit More About The Michaud/Martella “M4” Tasting Room Grand Opening Weekend

On our “official” opening weekend (August 3 – 5), we rocked the house with non-stop visitors!  It was amazing!  Friday was so busy we didn’t close until 9:30 p.m. (closing time is 8 p.m.).  On Saturday and Sunday, we were full each day from opening to closing time.  We did vertical tasting of Michaud Vineyard Chardonnays from 2001 to 2010 (with a few missing years in between).  The favorites were our 2001, 02, 03, 05 and 10. They’re all available for sale in our tasting room (and on our Michaud Vineyard website).  Test them for yourself and see if you agree.



Recipe Pairings

We found some recipes similar to the Sent Sovi wine pairing menu.  I’ll be the first to admit, I can’t cook like Josiah Slone of Sent Sovi but I’m going to give it my best shot.

Goat Cheese & Apple Strudel (just substitute the cherries for the apples)

AnchorHow The Michaud/Martella “M4” Tasting Room Came To Be

Michaud/Martella Tasting Room, Saratoga, CAAfter the 10 winery “co-op” tasting room, where Michaud Vineyard had a counter, closed, I began earnestly looking for a new location. As many of our Wine Club Members and Mailing List Customers live in the San Francisco Bay Area, it made sense to look there.

Michael Martella a long time friend and Winemaker for his own brand- Martella Wines as well as Winemaker for Thomas Fogarty Winery, mentioned that he had found a small space for a tasting room in the village of Saratoga. He was open to sharing the space and we began a 9 month process of research, negotiation, planning, permitting and finally construction. We passed our final inspections Friday, the 13th of July. We opened the door on Bastille Day July 14th, Vive la France!

On Thursday July 26, we will have a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with the Mayor of Saratoga and city officials at 5 pm. Following the Ribbon Cutting we are hosting a reception on our new patio. Dinner with two winemakers, across the street at Sent Sovi, follows the reception.

Our Grand Opening follows on August 3rd, 4th and 5th.
