POP-UP TASTING: The Romantic Wines of Chappellet

Friday, September 1, 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM

The Chappellet family’s romance with Pritchard Hill started more than four decades ago when Donn and Molly Chappellet first glimpsed its magnificent vista of forests and wildflower-filled meadows.Today, a second generation of the family has joined their parents in embracing the romance of Pritchard Hill. Recognized for their signature mix of grandeur, power and purity, two coveted bottlings will be open tonight!

 

“Chappellet winery always seems to over-deliver on quality for the price, thanks in large part to the estate’s 100 acres of vines on Pritchard Hill, high above Napa Valley.” – Wine Spectator

DOUBLE TASTING: Elegant Wines from Henri Bourgeois and Portuguese Powerhouses

Saturday, September 30, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Elegant Wines from Henri Bourgeois - From Sancerre, France to Marlborogh, New Zealand
Nestled under the southern foothills of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley, Clos Henri is the wine estate meticulously established and organically run by the famous Sancerre wine growing family of Henri Bourgeois. Clos Henri crafts textural and elegant wines, capturing the intense Marlborough character with the aim to reveal the identity of the Clos Henri Terroir and a true sense of place in the wines. 

“Why make good wine when you can make it excellent” Henri Bourgeois

Portuguese Powerhouses
Portugal has famously been known for centuries for just one wine: Port. The Douro zone is changing and one fact tells all: over the past 15 years or so, about half of the wine production from the larger Douro zone is now dry, table wine. These emerging Duoro table wines can be thrilling and many offer some of the most dazzling wine values on the market today.

“Portugal is arguably the most exciting wine place on the planet today.” Matt Kramer, Wine Spectator.
