Winemaker Wednesday: Twenty Four Wines by Charles Woodson
Wednesday, February 13, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (PST)
The Superbowl of Winemaker Wednesdays at 1313 Main, "WMW -TwentyFour Wines" is going to be a combination of winemaker interaction with Gustavo Gonzalez, and a meet and greet with future hall-of-famer Charles Woodson!
“TwentyFour is an endeavor that, like its proprietor, came from humble beginnings and evolved into so much more. Blended from grapes that were cultivated in one of the most exclusive vineyards in the Napa Valley, TwentyFour embodies the abundant blessings that surround us. This is a wine of pure enjoyment, gratitude, giving back and paying forward. From our cellar to yours, we hope you enjoy.”
Charles’ affinity for wine was piqued in the summer of 1998 when he arrived in Napa Valley for training camp while playing for the Oakland Raiders. Interested in learning more about the art of making fine wine, he partnered with one of the industry’s preeminent winemakers, Gustavo A. Gonzalez. Gustavo’s expertise was first applied to making a single barrel of Merlot, the varietal that first caught Woodson’s eye and later led him to Cabernet Sauvignon.
This Winemaker Wednesday at 1313 Main will be a new take on a now established tradition in downtown Napa. The event will feature the 2011 Sauvignon Blanc ($20), the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon ($150), and the debut release of the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon ($150).
The ticketed price will be $35 to attend the event, which can also be charged at the door to 1313 Main (limited availability). The ticket includes the flight of TwentyFour wines, a professional photograph with Charles Woodson, and entry into a raffle with prizes ranging from $200 to $600. To obtain an autograph from Charles, there is a minimum purchase of $150 required. No exceptions.
A second VIP ticket, will also be available for purchase at $180. This ticket includes the flight of TwentyFour wines, an autographed bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, a professional photograph with Charles Woodson, entry into the raffle, and one autograph on any item of the guests choosing.
