hoss-malone-brutocaoBrutocao Family Vineyard’s head winemaker, Hoss Malone, visited Cheers recently and hosted an in-store wine tasting. What an incredible experience! Wines enjoyed that evening were Brutocao Chardonnay, Cabernet and Quadriga. Brutocao is located in Mendocino County in the tiny town of Hopland, California. The Brutocao Italian family heritage and new world traditions combine for amazing wines.

As we sampled, Hoss shared his life stories as a California vintner with our customers and staff. Quadriga was the crowd favorite – a blend of Sangiovese, Primitivo, Barbera and Dolcetto. Each of these four grapes is known to come from a different corner of Italy. Cheers customers and staff had a great time, and we appreciate Mr. Malone taking time and brutocao-wines-2choosing us for a visit. We’d love to have him back because winemaker visits are the best! Don’t miss local opportunities to broaden your wine horizons and join the world of wine with winemakers and guests at Cheers.
