Suveg Cellars Holiday Food Drive

This holiday season, join us to help feed children and the elderly in Riverside and San Bernardino County at our upcoming Food Drive. 1 in 5 children in our region are food insecure, and don’t know where they are going to get their next meal. Senior citizens in the Inland Empire have also been adversely affected by rising costs in our state, and many can’t afford the nutrition they need to stay healthy.

On Friday, December 14th we’ll be hosting a Food Drive at the California Street Tasting Room. We’re asking everyone to bring non-perishable goods, dry goods, canned goods and jarred goods that can be stored for a long time. All food will be donated to the Inland Empire Food Bank, which runs several indispensable programs that help to feed children and elderly members of our community at risk of food insecurity. You can read more about their efforts at https://www.feedingamericaie.org. 

We’re encouraging everyone to raid their pantries, and donate as much to this drive as possible. During the holiday season, your donations mean more than ever. 


Whoever donates the most food will get a prize from the winery!

The drive will be starting at 4pm on Friday the 14th of December and run until 10pm. 

The event will be held at our Tasting Room, located at 12132 California Street, Yucaipa CA, 92399. 

This event is open to the public.

Let's make a difference this holiday season! See you on the 14th for the Food Drive!

Ugly sweaters are absolutely encouraged! And we’ll give a prize to the person who wears our favorite ugly sweater. (Free wine? Gift certificate? You’ll need to come to find out!)

Additionally, Craig Suveg will be playing Christmas pieces on his cello starting at 4pm! A Christmas Party complete with live cello music!

2015 Attitude Adjustment Release Party with Hearthwood Roasters

For everyone who has patiently waited since we ran out back in October, we couldn’t be happier to announce that our 2015 vintage of Attitude Adjustment will be released two days before Christmas on December 23rd. Our Nebbiolo has the same tremendous organic notes as the 2014 vintage, with fresh picked cherries, red licorice, tar, pipe tobacco, leather, violets, rose petals, forest floor, and hints of espresso like bitterness. To top off the release, the 2015 Attitude Adjustment has already won a Silver Medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition prior to its release!

With an organic profile consisting of tobacco and espresso on our Nebbiolo, we couldn’t think of a better pairing than coffee. We have invited Yucaipa’s most talented coffee roaster, Kevin Lentz, to make pour-overs and espresso at the tasting room during the release. Kevin’s brand, Hearthwood Roasters, roasts beans from all over the world, including Guatemala, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Columbia. His roasting techniques add the same subtle nuances to his coffee that Craig’s winemaking techniques add to our wine, and undoubtedly you won’t find a better coffee producer in the Inland Empire.

This event is open to the public.

The release will take place between 12-8 on Sunday. Kevin will be pouring coffee from 12-6, and his coffee will be available to purchase.

The event will be held at our public tasting room on California Street, at 12132 California Street, Yucaipa CA 92399.

International Zinfandel Day Party

International Zinfandel Day is upon us! We’ll be celebrating one of our favorite varietals a couple days early, on Saturday November 17th, as the following Wednesday we will be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

The spicy Zinfandel has a storied history, and can be traced all the way back to Italy’s Primitivo and Crljenak Kastelanski, an ancient Croatian varietal. Though its roots are in the old world the grape has gained renown in California where Old Vine Zin, sometimes upwards of 15.5 % alcohol, has catapulted the Zinfandel to international stardom.

To celebrate International Zinfandel Day, our Primitivo will go on sale for one day only. Everyone will get case prices on the Primitivo, and if you snag a whole case of Primitivo, we’ll make it a bakers dozen for no extra charge. The Primitivo is sure to be a hit at Thanksgiving, pairing very well with chili, dark meat, and anything spicy.

Craig will also be sampling multiple Zinfandel’s that aren’t on the menu, ranging from Old Vine Zin to dusty, Puglian Primitivo from the boot of Italy. You’ll have to come on by to see what he’s sampling!

This event is open to the public.

The event will be held at our public tasting room on California Street, at 12132 California Street, Yucaipa CA 92399.

Deductive Wine Tasting With Craig Suveg

Suveg Cellars is proud to present our deductive Wine Tasting Course!

This intensive 3 hour workshop provides the student with the opportunity to hone their analytical blind wine tasting skills through a series of group tastings and lectures.

Students will be presented 6 wines; 3 white and 3 red and will learn to use proper wine tasting techniques in order to deductively extract logical conclusions based on the evidence presented in the glass.

This workshop promotes student confidence in analyzing wine by using the Deductive Tasting Method designed by the Court of Master Sommeliers. By identifying each wine tasted using a Tasting Grid format, the student will consider the color, fruit characteristics, non-fruit characteristics, structure and finally offer a conclusion concerning the varietal, region and vintage of each wine presented.

This workshop also increases the students understanding of the relationship between theory and tasting as well as calibrating and improving the student's tasting technique, experience and tasting vocabulary.

Ticket prices for the Deductive Wine Tasting Class are:

$50 for non-Wine Club Members

$40 for Rhone Ranger Wine Club Members

$37.50 for In Vino Veritas Wine Club Members

Wine and Cheese Pairing Course With Craig Suveg and Deborah Duvall

Wine and Cheese Pairing Course With Craig Suveg and Deborah Duvall

  • 12132 California Street Yucaipa, CA, 92399 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join us for a special Wine and Cheese Pairing Course with Deborah Duvall and Craig Suveg at the Downtown Tasting Room of Suveg Cellars.

During this 2 hour course on Tuesday, August 14th, Deborah and Craig will explain the intricacies of wine and cheese pairing, the subtleties that determine which wines go with which cheeses, and guide you through 6 different wine and cheese pairings.

Pairings are listed below:

Suveg Cellars 2016 Viognier and Dutch Edam

Notes of honeysuckle, lush white peaches, ripe melon, fresh orange peel. The wine's naturally low acidity is perfectly balanced by its brightness, vibrancy and long crisp finish. We're pairing the Viognier with Babybel. A French version of Dutch Edam cheese sold internationally by 'The Bel Group, France' since 1952. Today nearly 75% of Mini Babybel is consumed outside of France. This is a semi-hard cheese made from pasteurized cow milk. The crisp fruitiness of the wine compliments the creamy smoothness of the cheese.

Suveg Cellars 2015 Roussanne and Comte

Our 2015 vintage is a classic representation of a traditional Rhone-style blend of 93% Roussanne and 7% Viognier. Full-bodied, aromatic and complex wine hints of garden herbs, lime blossoms, quince, fresh white peaches, Bosc pear, melon, and honey. We're pairing our Roussanne with Comte (also called Gruyère de Comté or Comte Fort Saint Antoine). A French cheese produced in the Jura Massif region of Eastern France. This hard mountain cheese is matured in special caves where the cheese gets its unique taste, texture and color. Comté is ripened for a minimum of 4 months to 18 or 24 months.

Suveg Cellars 2014 Primitivo and Italian Truffle

An opulent, well-balanced wine with hints of cherries, stone orchard fruit, subtle vanilla oak, slight smokiness and clove and cinnamon spice. We're pairing the Primitivo with Italian Truffle. This semi-soft, creamy cheese is made from cow’s milk and is laced throughout with slivers of black truffle. It's earthy and aromatic without being overwhelming and is a good match with the smokiness of the Primativo.

Suveg Cellars 2014 Sangiovese with Toscano with Black Pepper

Rich with aromas of cherries, bold red fruit, violets and orange peel. Elegantly finishes with subtle oak, mild tannins, and lively acidity. We're pairing the Sangiovese with Toscano with Black Pepper. Robust, nutty flavor brings aged Parmesan to mind, but also a creaminess like a farmstead Cheddar. Black pepper crusted edges add a stronger flavor which pairs well with the tannin and acidity in the Sangiovese.

Suveg Cellars 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon with Gouda

Suggestions of blackberry, cherry, currant and ripe fruit, resulting in a generously complex and finely balanced Bordeaux varietal. We're pairing the 2014 Cabernet with Gouda, (or "How-da" as the locals say) A Dutch cheese named after the city of Gouda in the Netherlands. It is a semi-hard cheese with a nutty taste and creamy, smooth texture

Suveg Cellars 2014 Attitude Adjustment (Nebbiolo) with Emmental

Nebbiolo - Fresh picked cherries, red licorice, tar, pipe tobacco, leather, violets, rose petals, forest floor, and hints of espresso like bitterness. We're pairing our Nebbiolo with Emmental (Emmentaler or Emmenthal) is a yellow, medium-hard Swiss cheese that originated in the area around Emmental, Canton Bern. It has a savory, but mild taste.

Tickets are $50 per person. If you are in our Wine Club, stay tuned for an email to receive your Wine Club Discount with a private link to purchase tickets.

Live Music: Craig Suveg Plays Selected Pieces From Bach on Cello

Join us Sunday the 29th of July for a special presentation of Craig Suveg playing selected pieces from Johann Sebastian Bach on the Cello.

Many don't know that before Craig became an acclaimed winemaker, he was a semi-professional musician specializing in stringed instruments. Inspired by the greats, Craig still plays his Cello on a near daily basis and decided on this rare night to break out the Cello and reincarnate a bit of Johann Sebastian Bach into the Uptown District of Yucaipa.

This event is at our DOWNTOWN TASTING Room at 12132 California Street, Yucaipa CA 92399. Click the facebook link for more details.

Wine Release Party: Attitude Adjustment

Suveg Cellars is happy to announce that on Saturday, July 28th, we'll be adding a new wine to our family. Our Nebbiolo, Attitude Adjustment, made its premiere at our Wine Club Pickup Party this last weekend and did so with a splash, already becoming one of our top selling wines. Attitude Adjustment lives up to its name, with big tannins, acid, power, and length on the palette. Aged 38 Months in Neutral French Oak to tamp down the bold Nebbiolo tannins, this wine is bold and hearty yet approachable now, and will likely last close to a decade.

The festivities are at our downtown tasting room located at  12132 California Street, Yucaipa CA. Below is a link to our Facebook event for directions and more details.
