11:00 AM – 1:00 PM: Opus One Wine Luncheon

In 1978 Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Robert Mondavi created a single red wine of absolute quality that would reflect the personality and character of both partners. The two men imagined a seamless blend of their winemaking and their cultures. This trail blazing joint venture began in Napa Valley with its first vintage in 1979. Opus One has since grown to worldwide recognition.

Since 2001, Opus One’s wines have been crafted by one winemaker, Michael Silacci. This prestigious tasting, presented by the winery’s senior stateswoman France Posener, will take an in-depth look at the evolution of the winery’s grape growing, winemaking philosophy and expert techniques that all contribute to the beauty that is Opus One.
