Seminar Napa Valley:
Please join us for this unique seminar “Understanding the styles of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon” with exclusive wines. Master of Wine Konstantin Baum will explain the various styles of Napa Cab with the following very special lineup:
Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars FAY: it was their 1973 S.L.V. Cab that won the “Judgement of Paris” in 1976.
Louis M Martini: More then 100 years of history. Probably the best price/quality ratio from Napa.
Robert Mondavi Winery Oakville: Well, we think this needs no introduction.
Matthiasson: Mom&pop winery from Steve en Jill Matthiasson, known as “extreme environmentalists” and proof that top Cab can also be under 13% alcohol.
Corison: California’s Grand dame Cathy Corison scores 94 points at Decanter, need we say more?
