Mr. Wine Guy Podcast features Sea Bird Wines

We love sharing our wines with everyone we meet, it's the core of who we are. So when we had the chance to meet with Mr. Wine Guy, Michael Gallagher, and share the story of Sea Bird Wines on his podcast, it was a recipe for Great Times already.

Our winemaker, Patrick Durbin shares the story of Sea Bird Wines on episode 56 of the Mr Wine Guy Podcast with plenty to share!

Patrick and Michael talk about how Sea Bird Wines is committed to giving back by contributing 100% of their profits and proceeds to non-profit organizations that protect our local coastline habitats.

From our brand values and a philosophical level, Patrick shares the importance of how a right mindset, being humble, listening instead of speaking, not focusing on "how" things are going to turn out, and how enjoying the journey instead of focusing on the destination have been pivotal to his overall success with Sea Bird Wines.

Michael was an incredible host, thanks "Mr. Wine Guy" for sipping on Sea Bird with us and helping us take Great Vines To Great Times with every bottle. Make sure to give him a follow on Facebook to catch his super unique "wine raps" with each spotlight wines.

A Very Sea Bird Summer Beach Guide

You can’t make great wine without a little ocean influence. It’s a motto we live by, and it shows in every bottle of Sea Bird Wines. This summer, make the most of your beach time with these top tips for enjoying Sea Bird wines at the beach!

Grab A GoVino

Single use plastic cups are out, reusable wine glasses are IN! These reusable wine glasses are perfect (and lightweight) and make the perfect companion to your beach cooler. Pour it up and kick it back to relax- minus the trash.

Beach, Please.

You can catch us at these Sonoma Coast beaches on the West Coast with our toes in the sand and some wine in our hands. The Sonoma Coast AVA itself encompasses about 2,000 acres of vineyards and includes the lands that we source the fruit from for our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The region itself is best known for these Burgundian varietals thanks to the cool morning coast fog that covers that vines over the growing season.

Watch Us Sip On Chardonnay(nay)

Our Sangiacomo Robert’s Road Chardonnay is the perfect beach beverage. With notes of tropical fruit and a bright and lively acidity grab a bottle (or two) to throw in your cooler. Even better if you can pair it with some fresh oysters off at Bodega Bay, or pack up a picnic with some of these easy beach-inspired pairings:

Lemon Herb Asparagus Potato Salad

Pressed Italian Picnic Sandwiches

Creamy Avocado Dip + chips!

Mango Basil Summer Spring Rolls

 

Don’t Forget Sea-Safe Sunscreen

If you’re heading to the ocean, make sure you’re not bringing anything unwanted into the water. Ocean research has shown that common sunscreen ingredients such as oxybenzone and octinoxate are the main culprits in reef damage, along with cosmetic preservatives like methyl paraben and butyl paraben. Keep your skin safe along with the ocean reef by choosing a reef-friendly sunscreen.

 

Cheers to sun, sand, and the perfect summer day from us at Sea Bird Wines!
