Join your fellow College Prep parents and friends on March 12th at 5pm for a private Live@ObsidianWineCo broadcast on Changing the Climate of Wine. This gathering on Zoom will be hosted by Arpad Molnar ’87 and Peter Molnar ’86, co-founders of Obsidian Wine Co. and fathers of Nichos ’19, Andreas ’21, and Gabriel ’21.
Not your typical wine venture, Obsidian seeks to explore the boundaries of people and nature as it relates to sustainable agricultural and forestry systems.
Obsidian farms the lowest (sea level) and highest (2,875’) vineyards in the North Coast, and therefore exists at the edges and boundaries of our regional eco-system. Besides growing grapes, it coopers its own barrels from the forests of Tokaj, Hungary. Find out how a tree planted in 1921 affects the taste of a wine that you are drinking in 2021.
Join us as we explore our natural eco-systems through the lens of wine, as we take a journey from the wetlands of San Pablo Bay to the rugged terrain of the high Mayacamas mountains and beyond. We’ll discuss recent regional realities such as our warming climate and the impact of fire on our regional food system.
We’ll pair each portion of the discussion with a wine that highlights the topic at hand, so that our time together will be as much fun as it is educational. We’ll explore our Rosé for the Bay for maritime influence, our Poseidon Estate Chardonnay for forestry and cooperage, and our Obsidian Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon for mountain viticulture.
This is a free event, and no purchase is required. However, if you’d like to follow along with wine in hand, you may purchase a 3-pack of these wines or a 6-pack to qualify for $1 shipping. Order by March 8th to receive your wine in time for the event (all proceeds of Rosé for the Bay purchases benefit San Francisco BayKeeper).
