Grgich Hills Estate Wine Dinner at Wheatleigh
Friday, February 26th at 6:30pm
Grgich first gained international recognition at the celebrated "Paris Tasting" of 1976 (subject of the hit movie Bottleshock). In a now historic blind tasting, a panel of eminent French judges swirled, sniffed, and sipped an array of the fabled white Burgundies of France and a small sampling of upstart Chardonnays from the Napa Valley. When their scores were tallied, the French judges were shocked: they had chosen the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay, crafted by Mike Grgich, as the
finest white wine in the world.
The Paris Tasting served notice to the world that the California wine industry was on the move, and it laid the groundwork for the creation of Grgich Hills Cellar. Today, they remain committed to making distinctive wines with quality, consistency and longevity. World leaders such as Presidents Regan and Clinton, Queen Elizabeth II and French President François Mitterand choose Grgich wines to serve at state dinners.
Join us as we pair these wonderful wines with the exquisitely created foods of Wheatleigh's award winning Chef Jeffrey Thompson as you are expertly guided through a five-course meal by William A. McPharlin Jr. of Grgich Hills Estate.
$135 per person, includes tax and gratuity.
