SEVEN % SOLUTION | Bergamot Alley

Bergamot Alley is a small wine and beer bar in downtown Healdsburg. Known by locals wine industry types as a place to go relax after a day in the lab, tasting room, or office.  A place to drink old world wines and geek out on wines no one else in Sonoma County offers... Yup, Bergamot Alley stocks their shelves with European juice.  BUT - this doesn't mean they don't appreciate the Northern California wine industry. In fact, this year they are throwing a part dedicated to just that. 

SEVEN % SOLUTION is a wine tasting event focused on bringing attention to Northern California wineries that make wine varieties that are a bit more uncommon to us US wine drinkers. 

Tickets for the SF event (May 8th from 5-8p) are on sale online: http://bit.ly/RTJD8K + the Healdsburg event is sold out.  

Roughly 93% of Northern California Vineyard acreage is planted to eight grape varieties. The remaining 7% of acreage is home to an impressive aggregation of lesser known varieties.
