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.

Many of you remember Fess Parker as the Texas born actor who played the TV roles of Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett in the 1950’s and 60’s. Parker dreamed of starting a family business that he could pass on to future generations and purchased a ranch in Santa Barbara.
With the help of acclaimed winemaker Jed Steele, Fess and his son Eli began producing wines. Today, Fess Parker Winery is producing award winning Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah.
At a recent tasting with Fess’s son-in-law, Tim Snider, I was amazed at the quality and depth of their offerings. Please join us for what promises to be a memorable Wine Dinner! Click here to view the event menu.
