Wine Cellar Dinner Series – Eisele Vineyard
An evening with Eisele Vineyard
WITH SPECIAL GUEST TAYLOR SMITH
Join us and Taylor Smith from Eisele Vineyard in Napa Valley for an exclusive winemakers dinner of this iconic winery in our wine cellar. Chef Melissa’s creations will be paired with an all-star line up of wines.
Since 1971, some of California’s most age worthy and intensely flavoured Cabernet Sauvignons have been made from grapes grown at the Eisele Vineyard, located on an alluvial fan near the northern end of the Napa Valley, just east of Calistoga. Protected by the Palisades Mountains to the north and cooled by westerly breezes from the Chalk Hill Gap, this 38-acre vineyard is planted on well-drained cobbly soils that produce a low yielding crop of exceptionally concentrated fruit.
The wines produced in this remarkable place have a rare combination of forthright character with precisely defined flavours and fine textures, deep concentration without any sense of heaviness, and the capacity to develop profound complexity with age. The Eisele Vineyard was originally planted in the 1880s to Zinfandel and Riesling, and has been under vine continuously since then. The first Cabernet was planted in 1964.
