Wine tasting adventure with Ed Kurtzman

  • Swirl On Castro 572 Castro Street San Francisco, CA, 94114 United States (map)

We are excited to have local winemaker and friend Ed Kurtzman host our next event. This is the type of tasting for those who want to explore wines with a small-case production. Needless to say, these wines are limited and so are the tickets for the tasting. 

Here’s a little bit more about Ed - 

Ed Kurtzman has been making wine since 1994 where he got his start in the cellar at Bernardus in Carmel Valley, California under the guidance of Don Blackburn and Kirby Anderson. From 1995 through 1998 Ed moved across Monterey County to Chalone Vineyard where he was enologist and then assistant winemaker under Michael Michaud. Ed had the good fortune of meeting future August West partners Howard Graham and John Peterson while he was winemaker at Testarossa for the vintages 1999-2002. He was the consulting winemaker for the 2003 through 2006 vintages at Fort Ross Vineyard. Ed is currently (beginning mid 2002 vintage) the consulting winemaker at Freeman where works with Akiko Freeman and Mitchell Masotti. From 2007 through 2012, Ed made the wines for Roar. And finally, Ed started his Sandler label in 2003, and he makes those wines at August West's San Francisco winery. Ed, his wife Michelle and son Tennessee live a short bike ride away from the winery in San Francisco's Haight Ashbury district.

We will be featuring a flight of 3 wines for a low price of $20 (details on specific wines to follow). Space is limited so get tickets soon!
