Saracina’s Bee & Butterfly Garden
Saracina’s Bee & Butterfly Garden Launch Party
Our bio-diverse Saracina landscape recently became even more beautiful and inviting with the completion of our one-acre bee and butterfly garden. A landscape filled with bees promotes a more bountiful harvest of healthier fruit and vegetables, especially grapes.
Join us at Saracina on Saturday, June 25, from noon until 2:30pm for a casual country picnic to celebrate the opening of our special garden and to meet its designer, Kate Frey, co-author of The Bee Friendly Garden and a Chelsea Flower Show award-winning landscape designer. Kate will be on hand to share her insights on garden design and plant selection to promote a healthy habitat for bees, butterflies, and other beneficial insects. She will also be signing her book and answering your questions about home gardens and the life of bees.
To complement Chef Shannon Hughes’ summer picnic fare, Owner John Fetzer will pour our Atrea Skid Rosé and other warm-weather wine favorites.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about ways to improve the bounty of your garden and the health of our environment and to enjoy a beautiful summer afternoon with us. Click here to purchase your tickets today! or call our tasting bar at 707.670.0199 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

More about Coro Wines:
It was 11 vintages ago that a group of Mendocino County winemakers joined together and came up with a unique idea to create an ultra-premium wine blend that would showcase the heritage varietal of Mendocino County, Zinfandel. The christened label and blend known as “Coro,” named and inspired from the Latin root for “chorus” is the first wine of its kind to set blending and aging parameters for a wine distinctive to its region in the United States.
Every Coro wine is a signature blend, individually crafted in Mendocino County from 100 percent Mendocino County grapes, in strict accordance with the Consortium Mendocino Bylaws. Each Coro wine must lead with 40-70 percent Zinfandel and may be blended with up to nine named varietals, honoring the “Old Italian” field blends of Mendocino. Production must adhere to strict protocols set by Consortium Mendocino. In addition to the varietal parameters, there are strict rules concerning wine chemistry, and barrel and bottle aging before the release of this extremely limited case production.
As a final test, the Coro wines must pass a review by a panel of winemakers in four blind tastings before the wine is accepted and certified to carry the Coro Mendocino label. Once certified, each Coro wine is bottled in a uniform bottle, label and marked with the Coro seal. These are the only wines in the USA and, we believe, the world that adhere to such stringent quality rules.
