Boot Fitting Party:  Saturday, Aug 19th 1:00 - 2:00


Alvies says: We want to provide the best customer experience in all of footwear. Because if you can’t have fun trying on boots, you’re doing it wrong. We will literally drive a van-full of boots to you for a personal boot-fitting at Bent Oak Winery.


We want you to feel comfortable trying on our boots, and pulling them off. We’ll bring a few sizes and styles of your choice, for you (and whoever else may be joining) to find the perfect pair, and answer all your boot-wearin’ questions with trusted expertise. 


And you get a free glass of wine to boot for filling out the form and trying on our boots!  If you are happy with the boots you try and decide to buy them, then you will get a $50 gift certificate to Bent Oak Winery.

Chalk Hill is defined by its warm climate and volcanic white ash that characterize its soils and give it its name.  Our Chardonnay reflects that warmth and the moderating evening coolness that allows this wine to fully develop and express itself.  We age our Chardonnay sur lie in French Oak barrels for complexity, structure and smooth overall mouth feel.


Tasting Notes: Perfume nose with hints of citrus, green apple, and pear.


Recommended Food Pairings: Bass, Scallops, Shrimp, Snapper, Veal Paillard
