The weekend begins with an exclusive Vintner-Hosted Library Wine Dinners. Winery owners and vintners dig deep into their cellars and share their most cherished library wines to accompany these intimate dinners. Choose among Chimney Rock Winery, Odette Estate Winery, Pine Ridge Vineyards, and Shafer Vineyards, as four celebrated chefs create Cabernet-inspired menus. Each venue’s dinner offers an unforgettable night of world-class wines and warm neighborhood hospitality.
The following day Winery Open Houses allows access to all 19 historic Stags Leap District wineries and their winemakers and owners. Wind your way up and down the Silverado Trail from one prestigious venue to the next, while discovering winery caves, enjoying special barrel tastings, exploring cellars, and enjoying food and wine pairings, all the while increasing your wine knowledge.
The weekend wraps up with a Sunday Vintner-Hosted Brunch and Appellation Collection Tasting at Silverado Vineyards where you are privy to the Association’s exclusive Appellation Collection, a compilation of 19 world-class Cabernet Sauvignons released annually in the fall. Stroll through Silverado Vineyards’ umbrella-filled courtyard and enjoy a delicious farm-to-table brunch catered by the Michelin-starred Meadowood Resort while you taste the wines in the Appellation Collection.
