Cost: $75 plus tax and gratuity
Duckhorn’s history spans 45 years. You might call owner Dan Duckhorn one of the Napa pioneers, not because his was the first winery (he lost that race by over 100 years!), but rather due to the fact that he was among the first to focus on the production of world-class Napa Valley Merlot-a mere stepchild to the Cabs that Napa was already famous for. Dan was convinced it could be done and put his passion and energy into his first harvest (1978). The rest, shall we say, is history. In fact, he was dubbed “Mr. Merlot” by the NY Times-something he is very proud of. Duckhorn wines are made under the guidance of Winemaker Renée Ary. She is only the 4th winemaker in the winery’s 40+ year history. A “bubbly” reception will be followed by a 3-course meal, pairing the gourmet Indian cuisine of owner/chef Avi Kapoor with 4 outstanding Duckhorn wines. GWG’s Peter Kerr will discuss Duckhorn’s history & explore these wine & food pairings. All the wines will also be available for ordering at great prices, even if you cannot attend the dinner (contact Bart@GourmetWineGetaways.com for details). Join us under the stars (dress warmly) in Akbar’s new outdoor patio section for a rare opportunity to enjoy these highly rated & sought after wines. It’s our first in-person wine dinner in 16 months-let’s get the party started!
Limited to 24 guests. Book early so you won't be disappointed.
