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!

David Ramey is one of my favorite winemakers and I was so glad to finally feature his wines on a wine festival eve!  A UC Davis graduate, Ramey made award winning wine at Chateau Petrus, Matanzas Creek, Chalk Hill, Dominus and Rudd before founding his own winery in 1996.  He is all about authentic hand crafted wines that are among the most respected in the world!  If you haven’t tasted these wines – you are missing out on one of life’s true pleasures!

Thanks again to David and all of our guests for joining us on this very special evening!
