8th Annual Wine Advocate Seminar & Tasting
California Syrah—Rises to the Top
The great French Syrahs are well known and highly sought after – as are the legendary Shirazes of Australia. Until recently, however, California Syrah was somewhere, largely unknown, in the stylistic middle. That has changed! In just the last few vintages, a coterie of extraordinary California winemakers have hit their stride with Syrah, now making phenomenal, complex wines with a personality all their own. Come be a part of the first comprehensive tasting of legendary Syrahs made all over California. The tasting will be led by the Wine Advocate's Antonio Galloni, who has personally selected the Syrahs you will experience.
Tasting 1:30 p.m.
The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone
2555 Main Street, St. Helena, CA
Great Friends, Great Food, Great Causes…and Great Wine (BYOB) Dinner
The tradition continues as Mr. Galloni hosts an evening celebrating the newly opened wine cellar at PRESS—the largest collection of Napa wines and vintages around. Bring a Napa Valley classic from your own cellar for tasting!
Reception 6 p.m.
