The Inspiration Behind Girl’s Night Out & A Profile of The Unique Wines At This Event
By Adrian Kettering
Like all beautiful things, the story of these wines began when Matt and I were in Napa last October. During our very first wine tasting at a small family winery, they told us that if we wanted to try some exceptional wines at reasonable prices, to go see Daniel at Back Room Wines. Back Room Wines specializes in small production wines, so most of the wines in his store cannot be found in grocery stores, and none of them can be found in West Virginia. We bought a case of mixed wines from him when we were there, and every single one of them was fantastic. So, when I told him about my idea of yoga and wine, he said he would put together three wines that would work well. Daniel, like many who love wine, also recommended the pairings.
It is so unique that these are wines from smaller wineries, and that we can’t get them locally. It’s not like I’m running to the grocery store the night before the event and picking up some bottles… Adrian

Wines & Pairings
Farella Park Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc
“La Luce” Napa Valley 2010
“Estate” vineyard in Coombsville, just east of Downtown Napa. Steel tank fermented and aged. Smell & taste fresh pineapples, jalapeño pepper, mango, limes and cilantro. Yes, it’s a tropical fruit salsa in a bottle!
To be paired with fresh goat cheese and bread.
Paso Robles 2009
Spicy, medium-bodied, jammy and berry-licious, the Foxglove Zinfandel makes for a perfect picnic or BBQ Zin. Full flavored to match most any food and setting. Complex enough to impress any red wine enthusiast. 6% Petite Sirah adds “POP!”
To be paired with aged cheddar cheese and bread.
Margerum Late Harvest Viognier
Happy Canyon, Santa Barbara County 2010
Viognier’s “exotic” aromas and flavors of sweet peach, honeysuckle, pineapple and apricots jump from the glass to your nostrils and tongue. This juicy, luscious, lip-smacking good light dessert wine is good by itself as well as fresh fruit tarts and light blue cheeses.
To be paired with a berry tart.
