Taste Great Wines from Sonoma’s MacMurray Ranch on Friday and Saturday

Once again, Centennial is showcasing one of the great wines that will be featured at Savor Dallas at a number of select Centennial Fine Wine and Spirits locations this weekend.  MacMurray Ranch, nestled in the Middle Reach of Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, has been a farmstead since the 1850s, when Col. George Porter built a home here for his family beside a small stream – now called Porter Creek – that flows into the nearby Russian River. Generations of Porters farmed livestock and crops on the rich silt soils of the valley floor until Hollywood legend Fred MacMurray bought the ranch in 1941. Fred embraced the rancher’s lifestyle, raising prize-winning cattle, while his children rode horses through the hills.  Wine grapes were first planted here in the mid-1990s. Today, 450 acres of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris vines flourish where cattle once roamed. The original buildings have been faithfully restored, and the 1,500-acre property is now home to old-growth oaks, redwood trees, birds and indigenous wildlife. And, of course, the MacMurray Ranch collection of world-class wines.  Taste the MacMurray Ranch Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris at Centennial Fine Wine and Spirits.  The store locations are listed below.

Join the Fun Friday and Saturday

If you love Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa and Sonoma, then you know the wines from one of California’s great winemaking families:  Louis M. Martini.  If you haven’t tried Louis M. Martini wines, two of their great Cabs and a Napa Valley Chardonnay  are featured at selected Centennial Fine Wine locations on Friday (3/4) and Saturday (3/5).  The Friday Tastings are from 5 until 7 p.m.  On, Saturday the complimentary tastings are from 2 until 4 p.m.  Jim White will be interviewing Centennial Fine Wine Director Scott Barber and shooting some video of the tasting on Friday at 5 p.m. at Centennial’s “C14” location at 8123 Preston Road in Dallas.  So, stop by for a glass and add your comments to the video.  Find out why the Louis M. Martini people say “great winemaking begins with great vineyards, and we want the land to speak through our wines”.   The tastings are being conducted to showcase a number of great wines being featured at Savor Dallas in the next two weeks leading up to the annual wine and food festival on March 18th and 19th.  Taste MacMurray Ranch on March 11-12, and Bridlewood Estate Winery on March 18 & 19, and meet their winemaker David Hopkins.  More details on that next week.  For now, catch a glimpse of a Bridlewood tasting at the Centennial Lakewood store and learn more about these fine wines from California’s Central Coast.  And, read on to find the participating Centennial locations for this weekend’s tasting of Louis M. Martini.  Cheers!
