Patio Tasting

Onsite at the Winery

Come meet the family! Join Winemaker, Michael Baldacci and Marketing Manager, Matthew Baldacci to experience the beauty of the Stags Leap District while enjoying a three wine flight of  Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. Hear from them as they share their wines which are all sourced from their three Napa Valley estate vineyards. The Patio has four tables, appropriately spaced, that can accommodate up to four guests per table. Each flight includes a complimentary logo wine glass. Well behaved dogs and bicyclists are welcome!

 

This is an outdoor tasting with no temperature control. As such, if the temperature is greater than 92°F/33°C we will only offer tastings between 10a and noon. If you were scheduled for a tasting after 12p, you will be notified of the cancellation two days prior to your scheduled tasting.

 

Our Patio will open on June 19, 2020 with service every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Food & Wine - Online

Online Experience via Zoom

 

Have you ever wondered why certain foods either taste fantastic or clumsy with certain wines? When meal planning, do you begin with the wine or the food? Do you have a short span of attention? If yes, then this experience is for you!

 

Join Kellie Duckhorn for an online tutorial of the basics of food and wine pairing strategies. This online experience will introduce you to the difference between taste and flavor and how you can begin to understand your own palate preferences which can then inform your food and wine pairing decisions.

Just Dessert & Wine! - Online

Online Experience via Zoom

 

It’s hard to find the best wine pairing with your favorite dessert! Sweet foods tend to enhance the acidity in a wine and the trick is to strike a balance between the two. The perfect pairing is the one where neither the wine, nor the food, dominate.

 

Join Kellie Duckhorn for an online tasting in search of the “sweet spot” between a wine’s natural acidity paired with some of the most common desserts. We’ll discover what works best and why!
