Eventbrite - ESTATE at Suite D

The Suite D website will continually be updated as we work through our KICKSTARTER backer events. With each event, we are bringing in a different local photographer to document the festivities and show you some of the possibilities of what the space can be.

Click below to see what we have to offer, but check back often to keep up to date!

Très Bonnes Années 2011 Marsanne,
Russian River Valley

After a whole lot of juggling, we were able to save this year’s white wine with the assistance of some extremely talented friends. A few months ago, we told you about our project with CRUSHPAD. Unfortunately, they ran into some bumps in the road and had to shut down their business.

Luckily we found Free Flow Wines in Sonoma, (a unique company that enables wineries to serve their wines in an environmentally-friendly way — on tap).  We were able to put the wine in kegs, and we are serving it on tap at both the girl & the fig and the fig cafe & winebar. Jeff Cohn, winemaker extraordinaire, naturally enhanced the flavors and aromas with his magic, and all in all it is a delicious, refreshing Marsanne with a touch of Viognier for added finesse. As you can see in the above picture, we turned Julie Higgin‘s label art into a TAP Handle.  Taste it soon – it won’t be around for too long!

With Autumn upon us, the Sazerac Cocktail is the perfect drink to transition into the season. This is a delicious cocktail for whiskey, bourbon and rye drinkers. The flavors of the Sazerac are layered and the bar techniques (a liquor wash swirl and a citrus release) make it even more interesting. The Sazerac is rich in history, dating back to the mid 1800s and is also the official drink of New Orleans.  Since you may not have a handy bottle of Absinthe, feel free to substitute Pernod or any Pastis you have available.

Sazerac Cocktail
for 2 cocktails

Absinthe or Pernod
3 ounces High West Double Rye Whiskey
6 dashes Peychauds Bitters
1 ounce Simple Syrup
Lemon Oil from lemon peel

Chill 2 rocks glasses.
Pour a dash of absinthe or Pernod into each glass and twirl to coat the inside of the glasses.
Combine the Rye, bitters, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker.
Top with ice and stir gently.
Strain into the chilled glasses.
Twist a piece of lemon peel over each glass to release the fragrant oils into the glass.
Discard the twist and serve.
