Extraordinary California Wine Dinner, Part V

Thursday, September 5, 2019 • 6:30 pm

Our fifth Extraordinary California wine dinner falls on September 5, 2019, features an unprecedented collection of Napa Valley red wines; a few current releases plus a few cellar selections and everything in between, including sixteen wines paired with a six-course dinner prepared by Chef/Proprietor John D’Amico and his staff. Vintage Wine Distributors takes the helm this year!

Many people compare Napa with Bordeaux because of the grape varieties, but in truth, Napa has more in common with Burgundy than Bordeaux when it comes to how the vineyard land is divided and how the individual bottlings/ labels are done. In an average year, the top Châteaux of Bordeaux’s Médoc will produce around 15,000 to 25,000+ cases of Grand Vin composed by
blending fruit from a vast area of vineyard land that encompasses upwards of 160+ acres in some cases. In Napa, nearly 80% of the wineries produce less than 10,000 cases per year and most of their “Grand Vin” equivalents amount to less than 1,000 cases in a vintage, sometimes as little as only 100-200 cases.
