APRIL 26th, 2016 7:00 PM @ THE DURHAM HOUSE
The first harvest at Stony Hill was in 1952, and for the last 64 years wines of singular style have been produced from the site which is 600 feet above the valley floor in Napa on the slopes of Spring Mountain. We have been fans of the chardonnay for years; it is reminiscent of Chablis - a steely wine, with notes of stone fruit and citrus, its quality speaks of the spectacular qualities of this mountain vineyard. All of the wines stand as overachieving, elegant alternatives to the more bombastic stylings which have come to dominate much of the output of the Napa Valley.
Joins us for a 5 course paired tasting hosted by Sarah McCrea, featuring the bounty of the late spring and created specifically by Chef Mike McElroy to highlight the special qualities of these amazing wines!
