Let’s taste and delve into wines of the Napa Valley together with author, Kelli White, from the book, “Napa Valley Then & Now,” on Saturday, 2 June. In his Foreword to Kelli White’s book “Napa Valley Then & Now,” Robert Parker credits her with writing the first in-depth and comprehensive guide to the wines of Napa Valley. He states, “In essence, this is a flawless, brilliant book. Kelli White deserves immense credit for this extraordinary addition to the world’s best wine literature.”
On Saturday, 2 June, Kelli will be at our shop for a tasting and discussion of wines of the Napa Valley where we will explore old vintages and new as well as top wineries from the region including Dominus and Heitz. The tasting will cover a total of 10 wines including the 8 listed below. We’re also offering a copy of her book with your tasting, and Kelli will be happy to sign your copy. This insightful and enriching book retails for HKD 750, but we’re offering a special pre-order package deal of the tasting and book for HKD 1,850. Come join us for this unique opportunity to explore this wine region and to acquire an understanding of what makes it special and worthy of being in your cellar with one of the top authorities on the subject.
I had the privilege of working for Kelli as a sommelier at Veritas Restaurant in New York City. Since those days she has continued to be a dear friend and wine mentor. I’m thrilled to be able to share her wealth of knowledge with our Hong Kong wine community.
