Pont Neuf/Juicy Rebound Tasting w/Kraft House no.5

Thursday, April 4, 7:00 PM

It's not often that we are graced with having an actual winemaker in for an event....who also makes some serious killer wines...AND to also for the first time be partnering with Kraft House no.5 for some delicious food accompaniements!  In a nutshell, Pont Neuf and Juicy Rebound come from winemaker Douglas Danielak whose roots stem from Burgundy and has come up in the ranks as one of California's most respected winemakers. Douglas spent years making wine for some of Napa's high end boutique wineries, such as Jade Mountain, and eventually developed his own labels, Pont Neuf and Juicy Rebound.   Pont Neuf represents Douglas's Burgundian roots, showcasing terroir driven Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, while Juicy Rebound exemplifies high end appellation driven cabernet sauvignons.  These wines are limited in production and offer a unique opportuinity to discuss winemaking with the winemaker himself. You'll get the best of both worlds at this tasting and will enjoy accompanying small plates from Kraft House, which if you haven't had a chance to visit lately, you are in for a real treat!
