Don’t miss out on our first wine dinner of the New Year!
Please join us Wednesday, January 29 when Duckhorn Vineyards’ Scott Finaly returns to The Carlton for what should be a very special inaugural 2014 Wine Dinner!
This is a high end dinner with three wines rated over 90 points by Wine Spectator and most of these offerings priced between $50 & $100! The Carlton has been a long time supporter of Duckhorn Vineyards and we have enjoyed a friendship with Dan Duckhorn.
Their vineyards at Duckhorn, Goldeneye and Parradux are all worthy destinations if you pay a visit to Napa Valley and Anderson Valley, California. Without making the trip, you can enjoy the fruits of their vineyards paired expertly to Chef Simon’s cuisine! We hope you can join us! Click here to view the menu.
Join us TONIGHT in welcoming the current winemaker from Duckhorn Vineyards, Bill Nancarrow! Duckhorn Vineyards is well known to most that enjoy distinctive wines. Founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in the late seventies, Duckhorn has crafted a tradition of quality and excellence that continues to this day!
Duckhorn has always been known for it’s sumptuous Merlot and we will be sampling the newer Estate and Napa selections before tasting the single vineyard offerings from 1993 and 1998! Bill Nancarrow is a native of New Zealand and worked there as a winemaker until deciding to travel to the northern hemisphere to work with one of California’s top Merlot producers. He joined Duckhorn for the 2001 harvest, became the winemaker at Parradux in 2003 and was promoted to executive winemaker for all of Duckhorn in 2007!
