Duckhorn’s history spans over 40 years.  You might call owner Dan Duckhorn one of the Napa pioneers, not because he was the first winery (he lost that race by over 100 years!), but rather due to the fact that he was among the first to focus on the production of world-class  Napa Valley Merlot-a mere stepchild to the Cabs that Napa was already famous for.  Dan was convinced it could be done and put his passion and energy into his first harvest (1978).  The rest, shall we say, is history. In fact, he was dubbed “Mr. Merlot” by the NY Times-something he is very proud of.  Duckhorn wines are now made under the guidance of Winemaker Renee Ary.  She is only the 4th winemaker in the winery’s 40+ year history.  Tonight, a Prosecco Welcome Reception will be followed by a       4-course meal, pairing the gourmet Indian cuisine of owner/chef Avinash Kapoor with 4 outstanding Duckhorn wines (including a Merlot).  This is a rare opportunity to enjoy these highly rated & sought after wines, so grab some friends and join us for the first wine dinner at this exciting new venue in DTLA.  Gourmet Wine Getaways’ Peter Kerr will discuss & explore these wine & food pairings.
