Premier Cruz – A Mountain Cabernet Experience

November 3, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

- $150

Join the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association at House Family Vineyards in Saratoga for an exclusive dinner paired with Cabernet Sauvignon. The evening will begin with a wine reception, during which guests can bid on wine lots as part of a silent auction, and sample new releases as well as rare and older vintages of Cabernet Sauvignon & Bordeaux varietals produced from the Santa Cruz Mountains American Viticulture Area (AVA). Following the reception, guests will be treated to local, farm-to-table cuisine prepared by Rodney Baca, Executive Chef at House Family Vineyards.

Vintners in the Santa Cruz Mountains have been producing exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon since as early as the mid 1800’s. The Cabernets produced from the Santa Cruz Mountains have a distinct character and style that is original to this Mountainous region. In 1976 the Judgment of Paris wine tasting event helped to catapult Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon onto the international stage when Monte Bello also known as Ridge Vineyards beat out classified Bordeaux estates like Château Mouton Rothschild, Château Montrose, Château Haut-Brion and Château Léoville-Las Cases in a blind tasting conducted by French wine experts.
