The 7th Annual Pebble Beach Food and Wine Festival!

Posted by on April 3, 2014


Pebble Beach Food and Wine


Next weekend the coveted festival will take over the beautiful Pebble Beach area for its 7th year appearance April 10th through 13th.

With such a beautiful venue as Pebble Beach, it only makes sense to combine the best of two worlds: food and wine over an entire weekend celebration.

pebblebeachSome highlights included in this year’s festival are:

Wine Seminars:

  • Rhone Renaissance with Delas Freres: Founded nearly 160 years ago, the Delas Frères wines are an enduring classic from the northern Rhône Valley where legendary appellations like Hermitage, Cornas and Côte-Rotie showcase the power of the syrah grape.  As international interest in traditional Rhône varietals has exploded, Delas Frères’ historical expertise and coveted vineyard sites remain essential.  Come taste their extraordinary Hermitage “Les Bessards” in a retrospective vertical tasting poured out of magnum, among other treasures, as we celebrate a Renaissance of the Rhône.
  • Five Decades of Mayacamas: High on the slopes of Mt. Veeder in Napa Valley sits Mayacamas, one of California’s most storied winemaking properties.  Founded in 1889, Mayacamas was the pioneer in extreme, alpine winemaking – a site where high-altitude cabernet sauvignon vines produced wines of exceptional quality, albeit under exceptionally difficult growing conditions. Join us for a special retrospective tasting of five spectacular decades of Mayacamas.
  • Vega Sicilia Unico – 150 Year Anniversary: Beloved by sommeliers and collectors alike, this legendary property and its flagship wine, “Único,” represent the apex of Spanish winemaking.  Comprised of Ribera del Duero’s indigenous tempranillo grape accentuated with Bordeaux-inspired cabernet sauvignon, Vega Sicilia is Spain’s First Growth – a wine that is marked by exceptional patience and provenance, as the estate frequently waits 10-20 years before releasing a “new” vintage.  This “only at Pebble Beach Food & Wine event,” grants access to a comprehensive tasting in celebration of the estate’s 150th year of production.
