Hendry Wine Dinner October 12, 2023 (SOLD OUT)
We have run out of stock for this item.
Come see what eight decades of farming in Napa Valley tastes like!
George Hendry and his family have grown grapes on the same land in Napa Valley since 1939. Through more than eighty years of harvests, our connection to the land has deepened, and our knowledge has grown.
The 203-acre Hendry Ranch is situated in the low, rolling hills just northwest of Napa, at the foot of Mt. Veeder, and includes 114 acres under vine. This location in the valley experiences substantial marine influence, allowing us to grow many different types of wine grapes. All Hendry wines are made only from estate grapes, and are crafted to highlight the unique conditions of this very special place.
Hendry has been in the Top 25 Wineries list in the San Francisco Chronicle in 2021, 2022, and 2023. In 2021 they were listed in Wine & Spirits Magazine's Top 100 Wineries. Therese Brown, Hendry's National Sales Manager, will be here from the winery to teach us all about this unassuming family-run estate.
“Straightforward, delicious, and priced with an eye toward value, the Hendry wines offer an unpretentious counterpoint to an increasingly precious Napa Valley. The operation remains firmly in family hands, and the already impressive quality seems to improve with each passing year.” Napa Valley Then and Now, -Sommelier Kelli White
We are stoked to be partnering with Chef Michael Pupillo for this dinner. Michael is the son of first-generation Americans from Sicily who settled in Deer Park Long Island, NY. Born hard of hearing and in a household where English was the second language Michael found his way to communicate by sharing his gift of cooking with family and friends. Michael is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and formally started his career at Panama Hatties, which was rated one of Long Islands best restaurants consecutively for 4 years. He then traveled extensively through France, Spain, Italy, and Sicily as a stagiaire to further his knowledge and craft. Michael then settled at the Ritz Carlton, Palm Beach for 8 years. After moving to North Carolina, Michael worked at the Washington Duke Inn and Rose Hill Conference Center before settling in Asheville where he is currently the Chef de Cuisine at the Omni Grove Park Inn Sunset Terrace, Great Hall Bar, and Edison Restaurant. His Sunset Terrace restaurant was just voted #1 restaurant in NC by iHeart!
