Seaside Wine Project Wine Tasting at Modica Market
Come out to Modica Market on Thursday AUG 27, 5-7pm, for a special wine tasting and see the new wine label just rolled out featuring the iconic Coleman Pavilion.
Roughly one year after the announcement of a new, private-label collection of hand-selected wines from Kokomo Winery, Seaside is introducing its newly-designed, customized label. The label features the Coleman Pavilion, the iconic obelisk beloved by guests and patrons of Seaside, as well as the local community.
The Seaside rosé is the first of six varietals featuring the new label and is available now at Modica Market. To celebrate, a special wine tasting will be held at Modica Market on Thursday, Aug. 27 from 5-7 p.m. Patrons, wine connoisseurs and novices alike will be able to taste the rosé and view the new wine bottles, sure to become collector’s items with the easily recognizable label. Demetria McNeese of McNeese Distributing will be pouring and talking about the Seaside Wine Project family of wines.
The next two varieties to sport the new label will be the Seaside chardonnay and cabernet, slated to be stars at a wine tasting held at Seaside’s 45 Central Wine Bar during Homeowner’s Weekend in October. The pinot noir will debut its new label during the 25th Annual Seeing Red Wine Festival, Nov. 5-8.
Kokomo Winery owner and winemaker Erik Miller will be pouring and speaking about all of Seaside Wine Project wines during the festival. The final two, in production now, are the Seaside cuvée and red zinfandel. These anticipated varieties will be available in early 2016.
Available by the glass or bottle exclusively from Seaside merchants, wine enthusiasts can choose from all the popular Seaside Wine Project varieties including the sauvignon blanc, a crisp chardonnay, pinot noir, cuvée and a light, red zinfandel. Modica Market, 45 Central, The Shrimp Shack, Bud & Alley’s, Great Southern Café, Amavida Coffee & Tea and Sóng airstream all carry the Seaside Wine Project wines. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each bottle benefit The Seaside Institute.
The entire Seaside Wine Project family of wines was hand-picked by Seaside founders Robert and Daryl Davis in response to the continual interest and demand from patrons and visitors for the best-tasting and highest-quality wines. After taste-testing numerous varieties from various wineries, the choice was made in 2014 to form a partnership with Kokomo Winery in Sonoma, Calif.
