Five of our Foley Food & Wine Society winemakers will be hosting online chats on Google+ Hangouts. These innovative live chats are simple: just sign up for Google+ Hangout by clicking "RSVP" next to the chats you'd like to join. Then, select the Cabs you want—when the shipment arrives, you can sip and savor with the winemakers as they comment on the wines in “virtual” tastings.
Brad Warner, winemaker for Foley Johnson, kicks off the celebration on Monday, August 26th, with a tasting of two of his Napa Cabs. We are proud of the world-class wines Brad is producing at our estate winery in the heart of America's preeminent wine growing region.
On Tuesday, Jesse Katz, winemaker for Lancaster Winery and Roth Estate Winery, both nestled in the rolling hillsides of Alexander Valley, shows off a select Cab from each winery.
Kuleto Estate‘s winemaker Dave Lattin will transport us to the mountains of eastern Napa Valley discussing a pair of his Cabs on Wednesday. Kuleto has gained recognition for his bold, tightly structured Cabernet Sauvignon.
Both winemakers Mark Lyon, of Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery, and Paul Warson, of Firestone Vineyard, will be hosting on Thursday, with a selection from each winery. Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery was one of the first producers in Sonoma County, with a history that stretches back to 1904. Firestone Vineyard is in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley.
Friday, August 30th is the grand finale to our week of celebration. We share our experiences and comments on the delicious Cabs we tasted with a "Tweet Up" on #CABWEEK13 @Sebastiani. I look forward to sampling the wines, learning from the master winemakers, and sharing with you the enjoyment of our great Cabernet Sauvignon.
