Slovenian Wine Flight at Punchdown in Oakland - 5/25 (Wed.)

Last minute notice from Punchdown - rare opportunity to taste Slovenian wines, a region famous for its tradition of making natural wines:

"Please join us on Wednesday May 25th from 6-9 PM as The Punchdown welcomes Miha Batič of Batič Winery from the Vipava ValleySlovenia. Miha runs the Batič Winery (and farm), which places a special emphasis on natural production and maintaining traditions inherited from a winemaking legacy dating back to 1592! The Batič Winery is exemplary for creating pure, natural wines reflecting a sense of place!

The cost of the flight is $25 for members of the mailing list, Facebook fans, & Twitter followers (just tell me on flight night)!  $30 for everyone else - and consists of four two ounce tastes (possibly a surprise bonus as well!). All wines are available by the glass & retail while supply lasts. These are special prices for flight night only!

-2009 Rebula $12 per glass / $23 retail bottle

Come on down to The Punchdown this Wednesday, May 25th for a chance to taste the wines of Batič Winery and meet the man behind them! Let’s take a little voyage to Slovenia ...  one sip at a time!"

I looked up the winery on Google and found this writeup online as well as these tasting notes.
