Wine of the Month

Metz Road | Pinot Noir, Vintage 2013 Mesa del Rio Vinyard

Metz Road was created out of our desire to express the unique terroir of a single vineyard site. As Scheid Family Wines, we grow Pinot Noir on six of our estate vineyards. For Metz Road, we select the top vineyard black on each vintage to craft a vineyard-designated Pinot Noir the is genuine in style and exemplifies this complex, temperamental varietal. The grapes were picked by hand at optimum ripeness in the earl morning hours of October 18, 2013. 

Tasting Notes | Aromas of ripe cherries, red fruits and blood orange intermingle with subtle vanilla and butterscotch notes. The palate is supple, rich, and layered with vivid flavors or black cheery, dusty-blueberry and raspberry.

The dining experience at The Florida Yacht Club is unforgettable. The warm, fun and friendly environment is present all of the time. Our Chef prepares a wide variety of world class cuisine ranging from hand cut steaks and local produce to the best seafood in the City. Along with seasonal menus in the dining room, our “Chef’s Market” menu is created nightly for our members’ enjoyment.

Our Chef receives daily deliveries of whole fish, hand selecting the best available, and then preparing our nightly features with a sushi grade product. There are many dining traditions at The Florida Yacht Club, for example, fried chicken on Wednesdays and Pasta Bar on Thursdays. These have been some of our specials for over half a century. At yacht Club, tradition is held in the highest regard.
