“Sip the Rainbow”: Meet the Winemaker Peter Gonc

Event Date:

June 11, 2022

Event Time:

12:00 pm

Have you been curious about the wines from Slovenia? Want to learn more about the fascinating “rainbow” of wine colors and styles? Do obscure grapes tickle your fancy? Do you love to schmooze with winemakers? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this opportunity is just for you.

Peter Gonc is winemaker for two Slovenian wineries: Gonc Winery, his family homestead winery founded in 1936, and Grape Abduction Company. Regions and borders of Slovenia have gone back and forth between the last century, which of course always affects the culture and trickles down even to grapes and wines made. You’ll notice a lot of cross over between Western Slovenia, NE Italy, and Southern Austria, with grapes going by their pseudonyms and aliases but both just as refreshing. Some of their names will be familiar to you — Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir — and some will be beyond foreign — Žametna črnina, Blaufränkisch, Kerner. Today’s tasting will feature wines from every spectrum of the wine rainbow — white, rose, orange, and red — so you may sip your way through the pigments of the vast wines of Slovenia.

To avoid overcrowding and to permit for a more one-on-one experience with Peter Gonc, please select your timeslot between 12:00pm – 3:00pm. Please arrive on time so you have adequate opportunities to taste through at least 6 wines. The wines featured at the tasting will be available as discounted pre-orders for the following weekend.



The Fine Print:

Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable to other dates 48 hours after purchase. Please feel free to send a lucky friend in your place if your plans change. The tasting will be held downstairs in the Galloways Room of The Belted Goat. 

Age will be verified upon entry. Wines featured at the event will be available for pre-order and will be available for pickup the following weekend.

Reserve your seats.
