Join Olives & Wine on Thursday, May 11th for a seminar and tasting with Kevin Jussila, owner/winemaker of Kukkula Winery in Paso Robles, California. An artisan micro-producer of less than 2,000 cases per year, Kevin crafts intensely concentrated but elegantly nuanced blends of cabernet sauvignon, grenache, syrah, counoise and mourvedre grown on his organic dry-farmed hillside parcel in California’s Central Coast. Having just planted his vineyards in 2004, Jussila has received consistent critical acclaim for his wines from Wine Enthusiast and Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate and was recently profiled in Wine Spectator’s 2016 Top 100 issue. Ari first discovered Kukkula while traveling in Paso Robles last fall and teamed up with U.S. Wine Imports to bring Kevin’s wines to Michigan for the first time. Kevin will guide us through a tasting of five of his rare estate bottlings paired with charcuterie, cheese and mezze from the Olives & Wine kitchen. Kukkula wines, including signed bottles, will be available for purchase at special retail prices.
