Please join us for our Milo Uncorked wine series event on Friday, June 3, 2016 from 4-6 p.m.
Milo Uncorked offers guests and locals a quintessential California experience of drinking wine by the beach. For this tasting session, we have partnered with Beckmen Vineyards.
Established in 1994, Beckmen Vineyards utilizes two drastically different vineyards with dramatically different soils and climates to create world-class wines. The Purisima Mountain Vineyard is 150 acres of certified biodynamic land with large variations in elevation and multiple exposures that produces beautiful Rhone varietal wines. The Winery Estate’s vineyard is 25 acres and located south of Los Olivos, which has a much warmer climate and lower elevation providing contrast to the Purisima vineyard. Lead by Tom Beckmen and his family, the Beckmen Vineyards specializes in growing Rhone-style grapes including Mourvedre, Grenache, Syrah, Grenache Blac and Counoise. The Beckmen family harvests its grapes by hand during the night to ensure that the grapes are at their lowest temperature and their flavor is at its peak.
Representatives from the winery will be pouring a selection of their wines from 4-6 p.m. in the Fountain Courtyard, adjacent to the main lobby of Hotel Milo.
