Join us for a special in-store event at Waterford Wine & Spirits featuring 3 Wine Company owner and winemaker Matt Cline on Thursday, October 14 at the Delafield Wine Bar.

Matt, being the 8th of 9 children, was practically born into winemaking – in 1982 he went to work for his brother at Cline Cellars, which still produces great Zinfandel to this day. There he spent 16 years building Cline Cellars into “American Winery of the Year” in both 1999 and in 2001.

And then one day the big break came – Matt founded his own winery in 2001, Trinitas Cellars. By 2006 it was a smashing success, and he was able to sell the winery and brand. But not one to rest his laurels, Matt went back to his wine-growing roots and founded Three Wine Company, focused on the Zinfandel family of varieties. That was 2008, and he’s never looked back.

Matt will take you on a guided tour of California, curated across its entire selection of wines. Taste along and decide which wines are best for your fall agenda – or your wine cellar. We are offering the wines as flights, with one flight being $12, and the other $19. Each flight includes a 2.5-oz. pour of the four wines. All wines will be available at the wine bar as well as discounted the night of for retail purchase.

So come, join us in tasting some delicious wines and having a fun time (while we learn something, too!) at the wine bar on October 14 – stop in at any time.
