Social Media Club is officially launching a monthly wine club and are working closely with our friends at VinTank to present a monthly selection from some of the top wineries in California, with the plan to expand to wineries across the United States. We’re extending our Social Media Club members exclusive discounts to these wines, with even deeper discounts available to our Professional, Small Business and Corporate members.
Our May Wine of the Month is brought to you by, the Hirsch Vineyards, one of California’s most revered producers of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Planted by David Hirsch in 1980, the estate vineyard sits on a ridge at the northwest edge of Sonoma County within view of the Pacific Ocean and a stone’s throw from the San Andreas Fault. The cool, coastal climate combined with the diverse soils nourishing the vines has yielded some of the most sought-after pinot fruit in the New World.
Having sold their grapes to some of the most legendary Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producers in California (including Williams Selyem, Flowers, Littorai, Kistler and Rochioli), the Hirsch family decided in 2002 to start making their own wines.
The 2008 “M” Pinot Noir is one of their gems, a blend of the top twenty barrels of Pinot Noir produced that year. San Francisco Chronicle wine critic Jon Bonné hailed the “M” as one of the finest California Pinot Noirs of the 2008 vintage. Of the 495 cases produced, fewer than 75 remain.
Hirsch Vineyards is pleased to offer you a 3-pack of the “M” Pinot Noir for $121 (10% off), plus flat-rate shipping of only $9. This package ordinarily retails for $135. (Flat-rate shipping does not apply to residents of AK, HI, AL, AR, MD, MS.)
