California Cabernet Sauvignons

Saturday, March 17th

Trapp Family Lodge Wine Cellar




Cabernet Sauvignon is the grape that put California on the international Wine map long ago when a bottle of Stag’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon beat many higher priced Bordeaux in a blind tasting by French judges.  The French were embarrassed, we were thrilled.


Cabernet Sauvignons have been my favorite wines for quite some time, in fact I still remember a college girlfriend from the Bay area in California whose father was collecting Stag’s Leap.  How I envied him.


We’ll taste two wines from Paso Robles, one from Sonoma and two with a California appellation.




Price is $20.  Please call or see the front desk to place reservations.  802 253-5742.  Doors open @ 4:00.  I suggest you arrive no later than 5:00 to avoid feeling rushed.  People come and go during the tasting which is an informal walk around format. We end at 6:00
