NAPA, Calif. (PRWEB) – Arrow&Branch announces three new tasting experiences offered exclusively at the Wheeler Farms Winery in St. Helena
These three new experiences, detailed below, are exclusively offered at one of Napa’s newest state-of-the-art wineries, Wheeler Farms. Included in the experiences are: a complete tour of the grounds, winery, and winemaking facility as well as an opportunity to visit the properties chickens, bees, orchard, and bountiful planters that are filled with seasonal vegetables and herbs.
The newest additions to the Arrow&Branch tasting experiences at Wheeler Farms will now feature small bites made by the winery’s chef included in the fee. These pairings will complement each wine experience and feature produce grown right on the property. Current seasonal dishes include a Mushroom Duxelle, Parmesan Crisps, Salted Organic Almonds, Cheddar Biscuits drizzled with local honey, and Gougeres.
Current Release Experience
The first of our three experiences allows one to taste through our four newest released wines: the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc, 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon “Black Label,” 2014 Red Wine “Right Bank Blend,” and 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon “Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard.”
Beckstoffer “Dr. Crane Vineyard” Experience
Our second experience allows for an in depth vertical tasting of wine from one of Napa Valley’s more esteemed and historical vineyards. Often referred to as the La Mission Haut Brion of Napa, this vineyard was originally planted in 1858 and consists of gravelly Cortina and Bale loam soils. The vineyard’s climate is known as one of the warmest in Napa Valley which produces a beautiful, dark, luscious fruit flavor profile.
Each taster will experience Arrow&Branch 2012, 2013, and 2014 wines coming exclusively from the Beckstoffer “Dr. Crane Vineyard”
“Right Bank” Experience
This experience offers an opportunity to enjoy a vertical tasting of Arrow&Branch’s flagship wines. The primary grape source is from our meticulously farmed Cabernet Franc Estate Vineyard in Coombsville. The unique microclimate is unlike any other in the Napa Valley; where the morning fog burns off quickly but cool breezes sweep through the vineyard on summer afternoons. This allows the grapes more time to ripen and encourages flavor and character development in the grapes. The wine is then blended with Merlot from the Stagecoach Vineyard which also provides a unique flavor profile thanks to its elevation and red, volcanic soil. The fruit is described as ripe, bold, and extremely concentrated which make it perfect for ultra-premium wines. The two unique grape sources create a “Right Bank” Cheval style wine.
Each taster will experience Arrow&Branch “Right Bank Blend” 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 wines.
This is a great opportunity to taste the wines of Arrow&Branch at its home in St. Helena. Tasting fees for each experience are $125/person.
