State Department Dinner in Washington DC


Goldschmidt Wines Served at State Deptartment Dinner
Tuesday, June 23 - Washington D.C.

We are proud to share our exciting news! Three Goldschmidt wines—Chardonnay, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon—were the only wines served at a recent State Department dinner hosted by Secretary of State John Kerry for the U.S.—China Strategic and Economic Dialogue and People-to-People Exchange delegates.

The banquet included high-ranking officials from both the United States and China. Nick and Yolyn Goldschmidt were among the guests, and met a number of the U.S. & Chinese delegates, including Secretary Kerry. What a thrill & honor for the winery & for us!

The wines served to the guests included our 2011 Chelsea Goldschmidt Merlot — Dry Creek Vineyard for the reception, and our 2014 Goldschmidt Chardonnay Singing Tree — Russian River Valley and 2011 Goldschmidt Cabernet Sauvignon Yoeman Vineyard — Alexander Valley during the dinner. We were thrilled to have not one but three of our wines from prominent Sonoma County appellations poured at this State Department event.

Although we are almost sold out of these wines, we set aside a few bottles for our valued Goldmark Club Members. One benefit of being a part of the Goldmark family is you have access to Nick's finest wines from around the globe. Our Goldmark Club Members can state with confidence that they enjoy wines chosen by the State Department to represent the best wines produced in the United States.

In addition to having a few bottles of the '11 Merlot and '11 Yoeman Cabernet available for purchase, we are also offering a pre-release, sneak preview of our 2012 Chelsea Goldschmidt Merlot and '12 Goldschmidt Cabernet Sauvignon Yoeman Vineyard. As you already know, 2012 was an absolutely stellar vintage, so we can guarantee the superb quality of these wines.

The pre-release 2012 Chelsea Merlot and Yoeman Cabernet will be available at the same price as our 2011s (see below), but only until July 15th. If you'd like to do side-by-side tastings of these two excellent wines from the '11 and '12 vintages, now is your only chance to order both of them. We anticipate these wines will sell out quickly, so act now.

To place an order for these wines, please email Karen or call her at 707-473-9262 asap. Not a club member? Now is the time to join. With only a very few cases of the 2011 wines remaining, don't wait another minute to call. Wine pricing available until July 15th, or while supplies last.
