Estancia Wine Dinner – June 11

Posted on

Clay-Brock-The-CarltonPlease join us on Wednesday, June 11 when we welcome Estancia Winemaker and General Manager Clay Brock to The Carlton to sample his well crafted wines paired with Chef Simon’s cuisine.

Come and enjoy the flavors from Monterey, Paso Robles and Santa Lucia Highlands. Estancia was established in 1986 when Franciscan’s Agustin Huneeus purchased the former Paul Masson vineyards and the winery was one of the founding members of the Meritage Alliance in 1988.

Today, Estancia is part of Constellation Brands and Clay Brock’s thirty years of winemaking experience are helping Estancia to once again make award winning Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Meritage and Red Blends. We are happy to have two comparison courses, tasting the current vintages of the Pinot Noir Reserve and Meritage Reserve next to the large format versions from 2005.
