The Wines of Shadowbox | Four-Course Wine Dinner | $125 (plus tax & gratuity)
When Shadowbox Cellars was founded in 2009, two of its partners, Monty and Sara Preiser, were well recognized wine writers. Because of their knowledge of winemakers and vineyards in Napa and Sonoma, the decision was made by all the partners to engage individual winemakers who had made strong impressions revolving around certain varietals. Thus, at its inception the company employed four winemakers to craft four varietals, each in their own particular style. It was a noble experiment. As the Shadowbox owners gained education and experience in their new field of endeavor, the decision was made to focus on a singular style of wine – their own.
Each year has seen progress in not only the quality of the wines, but the production numbers, which have expanded from 200 cases in 2009 to now just over 800 cases of the 2016 vintage. Nonetheless, the focus and ultimate profile of each wine has remained the same -- acid driven, food friendly wines, sourced from small vineyards that produce superior fruit. They all firmly agree that without the perfect vineyard, the beginning point of each grape, the final product will fall short of expectation.
We are pleased to welcome proprietors and noted wine and food writers, Monty and Sara Preiser, to share their story and their wines with us! For this special evening, Chef Trey has created a menu to complement the fantastic boutique wines of Shadowbox. Monty and Sara will guide us through each wine for a fun and interactive evening of delectable cuisine and fine wine!
