Duckhorn and Calera have been setting the stardard for American fine wines for over 40 years. Dan and Margaret Duckhorn founded Duckhorn Vineyards in 1976 and have been crafting classic, highly rated Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, since their inaugural vintage of 800 cases.
In 1975, Josh Jensen founded Calera in the Gavilan Mountains of California’s Central Coast. Inspired by his mentors in Burgundy, Jensen’s goal was to unearth limestone-rich soils in California to create unique and stylish terroir- driven Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Calera Wines continues to explore their pioneering spirit, and are revered globally for their elegance, complexity and stylish expression of the Central Coast terroir.
Our guest speaker, Scott Finaly, Mid-Atlantic Sales Manager, brings 31 years of expertise in the wine industry to the Duckhorn Wine Company. Starting out in the restaurant sector, Scott learned the wine business from the ground up. His opportunities to interact and learn from many influential winemakers such as Robert, Michael, and Tim Mondavi, Joe Heitz, Joseph Phelps, Sam Sebastiani, and Dan Duckhorn, developed Scott’s passion to educate the consumer about fine wine and food.
