Hosted by Vintners Brion and Ronda Wise, along with Winemaker Julien Fayard, this multi-course dinner will be prepared and presented by Chef Michael Chiarello, Executive Chef and Owner of Coqueta as well as Bottega Napa Valley. Chef Chiarello is one of America’s noteworthy restaurateurs, with appearances on The Next Iron Chef and Top Chef Masters, among other televised culinary shows. Chef Chiarello’s menu will be inspired by one of Napa Valley’s renowned Italian restaurants, Bottega Napa Valley, with meticulously sourced seasonal ingredients that pair with the elegant BRION wines crafted by Julien Fayard from the Sleeping Lady Vineyard.

“I’ve always believed that wine is best enjoyed in good company and with good food. That is why we created this Summer Dinner Series. My wife Ronda and I are excited to have the opportunity to sit with guests and enjoy a bottle together with great cuisine. These dinners are designed to enhance attendees love for terroir-driven wines. It is important to us that we create a true sense of spirit and place at BRION and we are starting with this dinner series and these incredible chefs.” —Brion Wise

Robb Report: These Cabernets from BRION Will Change How You Think About Napa Cabs

Robb Report: These Cabernets From Brion Will Change How You Think About Napa Cabs
Sara L. Schneider, May 2021

“Brion Wise has employed not one, but three, winemakers to coax the best out of his four vineyards’ terroir.…‘My intent was, and is, to marry each vineyard with a winemaker whose style best fits what comes from the land.’ That human understanding is critical, in Wise’s view, to making the best wine possible from a place. ‘What you do in the vineyard,’ he says, ‘goes all the way through to the bottle. Having winemakers that understand that, and understand what the vineyard delivers and how to extract that is everything. Farming techniques are critical in this process, and our philosophy is not to change what the vineyard delivers.’...The deft—and different—hands in these vineyards and on the wines show, and create a snapshot of diversity in the BRION 2016 lineup that Napa critics often fail to see.”
