Yeske Buie Souvenir
Our Live Big glasses have become quite popular as they continue to travel around the country and around the world as part of our “Where in the World is the Live Big Glass?” campaign. We have received over fifty photos of individuals living big with the Live Big glass in hand; some have taken the glass to far away lands and some have been enjoying the glass at home highlighting their personal hobbies and interests. At our Open House, we will have the Live Big glasses on hand for attendees to take home which we hope you will use to add to our gallery of those enjoying their glasses.
Featured Wines from Elissa and Dave’s Favorite Wineries
Iron Horse Wedding Cuvée – Iron Horse is best known for this cuvée. Fresh and festive, this bubbly is built for a party!
Iron Horse Russian Cuvée – This cuvée was first produced for the historic Reagan Gorbachev Summit Meetings, ending the Cold War. This is the richest of Iron Horse’s Sparklings and has been served at the White House for five consecutive Presidential Commemorates.
Iron Horse Classic Vintage Brut – The Classic Vintage Brut is a traditional blend of estate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, aged four plus years en tirage. Perfectly named, it is both classic and vintage in every sense of the word; a sleek and impeccably focused bubbly, that offers a crisp, laser like finish.
Iron Horse Ocean Reserve – This cuvée was created to celebrate the 125th anniversary of National Geographic and $4 from the sale of each bottle will be donated to create marine protected areas and reduce overfishing around the world.
Iron Horse UnOaked Chardonnay – With no oak, this Chardonnay stars pure pineapple, orange, green apple, lime, and tropical fruit flavors, brightened with crisp acidity. This wine is a beautiful, pure expression of Green Valley, where Iron Horse is located, in the coolest, foggiest reach of the Russian River Valley.
DeLoach Forgotten Vines Zinfandel – San Francisco firefighter Cecil DeLoach spearheaded Pinot Noir wine growing in the Russian River Valley in the early 1970s. After the Boisset Family from Burgundy, France assumed ownership in the early 2000s, they have since enhanced the health of the land and the quality of the wine by incorporating eco-friendly farming practices through Biodynamic winemaking. The Forgotten Vines blend is comprised of several exemplary mature vineyards first planted in the late 1800s and early 1900s in the warmer reaches of the region.
Merry Edwards Russian River Valley Pinot Noir – It’s been said that in many ways, Merry Edwards is like her wines – complex, balanced, and memorable. An intricate blend of artistic vision, scientific training, spirit and grace, she leaves a lasting impression. This wine combines grapes from six different vineyards located across the range of Russian River Valley.
Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc – In the glass, the wine is mouthwatering, showing off floral notes of jasmine, orange blossoms and lemon verbena. This delicate perfume is complemented by rich citrus tones of lime zest, tangerine and mandarin orange. White peach and ripe pear along with tropical accents of pineapple, lycheé and guava round out the aromatic profile. A hint of minerality, along with a bit of exotic barrel spice — cumin and coriander — add even more intrigue.
At Yeske Buie, our purpose is to empower people to pursue their Live Big® lives. And our greatest strength is our dedicated team of professionals, led by our two founders, who between them have over 70 years of combined experience practicing financial planning and leading the profession.
