Celebrate wine in the Napa Valley as you join The Meritage Resort for a showcase of some of the best wines in the Napa Valley as we welcome Quintessa, Faust, Flowers, and Illumination wineries to our Estate Cave. The evening will feature top rated wines from each winery and flavorful dishes prepared by The Meritage Resort’s culinary team, including Executive Chef, Ryan Rupp.
The dinner reception will begin at 6 p.m. on the Vineyard Terrace of The Meritage Resort, overlooking our hillside vineyards and entrance to the Estate Cave, where appetizers, wine and live music begin your evening of indulgence. The evening continues as we move into the Estate Cave for dinner at 7 p.m. for a six-course wine and food dinner.
Throughout the evening, you’ll hear from Leslie Sullivan, Napa Estate Director, and Chantal Forthun, Flowers Winemaker, as they speak about the history and winemaking practices of each of the wines that make these wineries some of the region’s best every year.
