Drumroll please....Elyse Winery owner Josh Peoples is coming back to town! We had a blast sharing laughs and stories with him when he was here earlier in the year, and we made sure to get him on the books for a Taylor's Wine Shop dinner this fall. We've had so much interest in this dinner that I know it will sell out quickly.
Elyse Winery history dates back to 1983 when Nancy and Ray Coursen moved to Napa Valley to chase that dream. Their daughter, Elyse, was born in 1986, and they started Elyse Winery in 1987. After a decade of nomadic winemaking at various custom crush facilities, in 1997 they purchased a small winery and vineyard on Hoffman Lane, the home of Elyse Winery and tasting room. For the next twenty years Elyse would become the launching pad for countless Napa Valley wine lovers to explore some of the region's most celebrated vineyards.
After thirty years of stewardship, Ray and Nancy decided that it was time to retire. What began as a casual conversation over dinner evolved into the next chapter for Elyse Winery. In October 2018, Ray and Nancy Coursen sold Elyse Winery to fellow Yountville locals, Josh Peeples, and his partner, Cheryl. Perfect timing for both parties, the torch has been passed to continue the same passion for the decades to come. In addition, Josh brings his other brand Addax, also made by Russell Bevan, to the Elyse family of wines, and we will introduce that brand to you at this dinner!
We're thrilled to be partnering with Coquette Brasserie, and they will no doubt be serving up a beautifully paired three course dinner with the following wines. Stay tuned for the menu, but know the tickets will most likely sell out before the menu is finalized.
Elyse C'Est Si Bon 2020
Elyse Chardonnay 2019
Addax Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2019
Elyse Holbrook Mitchell Vyd. Cabernet Sauvignon, Yountville 2019
Elyse Morisoli Vyd. Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford 2017
