Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present an exclusive and limited seating wine event.


The Petaluma Gap, featuring Trombetta Gap’s Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011-2015


The newest AVA in Sonoma County is special indeed. The Petaluma Gap, formed by the dip in the hills toward the Pacific Ocean due west of the town of Petaluma, allows a wave of cool air and fog to envelop a very special place for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Within the Petaluma Gap lies the famous Gap’s Crown Vineyard, a legendary piece of land that many consider a ‘Grand Cru’ of Sonoma County.

Trombetta Family Wines is a micro-producer with some serious chops. Their winemaker, Erica Stancliff, was a mere ten years old when no other than Paul Hobbs discovered her incredible palate. Fast forward a decade and Erica worked side by side with Paul Hobbs as he gained international attention. Today she’s making limited production world-class Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. Learn more about the family at https://www.trombettawines.com/about-us.


This class will be threefold. We’ll begin with an overview of the new Petaluma Gap AVA and the importance of AVA designation. Next, we’ll zoom into the Gap’s Crown Vineyard and learn why the who’s who of Sonoma Pinot Noir source fruit from it. Lastly, we’ll learn about the Trombetta Family Wines label and taste through the selections, comparing and contrasting five incredible Pinot Noirs.
