An American Wine Dinner

Chateau St-Michelle of Washington State and Napa Valley Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, with Clemens Tamegger


Timing: Aperitif 7pm, sit down 7:30

Dress code: Smart Casual

Price: £99.50

Tonight we are delighted to present two extremely prestigious American wineries. Chateau St Michelle from Washington State and Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars from the Napa Valley.

Chateau Ste Michelle is one the oldest wineries from Washington State.  The year 1967, proved a turning point for Chateau St-Michelle, under the guidance of legendary consultant winemaker, Andre Tchelistcheff, a new line of wines was introduced that would quickly be well received and put the winery on the wine map.  Through the excellence of its wines, Chateau St-Michelle was instrumental in proving that quality wine in the USA was not coming just from California.  Indeed, the reputation of its wines has enticed two famous wine producers; Ernest Loosen from Germany and Marchesi Antinori from Italy to join forces with Chateau St-Michelle to be partners in the production of some specific wines.

Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars was founded in 1970 by Warren Winiarski, who previously, had spent some time working for Robert Mondavi.   His second vintage was the 1973 and at the famous 1976 Paris tasting, organized by Steven Spurrier, (now referred to as ‘The Judgement of Paris’), his 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon surprised everyone by coming top in front of some of the best red Bordeaux wines.  The rest as we say is history!  Today, the winery belongs to a joint venture between Chateau St-Michelle and Marchesi Antinori.  Winemaking is now in the hands of talented French winemaker Christophe Paubert.

Magnificent wines from both wineries will be presented tonight by Clemens Tamegger.  He will guide us through and explain some interesting aspects of both wineries.   He will share with us his knowledge of both wineries.  Included in the line-up of wines will be the superb Eroica Riesling, Col Solera, as well as a tasting glass of the legendary cuvee, Cask 23.  No burgers tonight on the menu, just an American experience to savour!
