On Monday, May 18 we welcome Winemaster David Whitehouse for a Wine Dinner celebrating the great offerings from Trefethen Vineyard! Trefethen is a family vineyard that was founded by John Trefethen in 1973 on the old Eschol Ranch purchased by his parents. Click below to hear me speak on this Wine Dinner!
In 1975, David Whitehouse Jr., joined John and they’ve been producing great wines ever since. We have had many great and famous winemakers visit The Carlton, however, never have we had a winemaker that has been awarded with a “Best in the World” by the World Wine Olympics! The 1976 Trefethen Chardonnay received that award in the famous Paris competition! Come taste the most recent offerings of a winemaker who still pours his heart and soul into the terroir!
We have recently reviewed our “wines in the cellar” and have added 137 “aged” selections to our list!! From the 1989 Ridge “Monte Bello” to the 1981 Chateau Mouton, our award winning list just got better!! Come and savor these great selections….before they are gone!
