Our new by-appointment-only Legacy Tastings will be hosted by third generation Trefethen family member Lorenzo Trefethen and will showcase Trefethen’s smallest production wines alongside seasonal pairings from Winery Chef Chris Kennedy Aken.
Guests will be welcomed with a taste of Trefethen’s 2018 Dry Riesling and a walk through the recently restored historic winery which dates back to the 19th century. Next, guests will hop on the family’s eco-friendly cart for a tour of the vineyard, including a stop at Katie’s Acre, named after Lorenzo and Hailey’s grandmother and the source of the winery’s age-worthy Harmony Chardonnay. After the driving tour, Lorenzo will lead a seated tasting in the Villa, a former family home surrounded by gorgeous gardens. Guests will enjoy the inaugural 2016 vintage of The Cowgirl and The Pilot Merlot, a touching tribute to Lorenzo and Hailey’s parents, the winery’s founders. The 2014 HāLo, the family’s award-winning flagship Cabernet Sauvignon which is sourced entirely from their Hillspring vineyard follows next. The experience of these wines will be elevated by food pairings such asgougères of fresh goat cheese mousse with tarragon and toasted hazelnuts and A5 Wagyu beef “lollipops” with Trefethen bread sticks, wild arugula and black pepper crème.
Legacy Tastings are offered for four people at $175 per person by prior appointment only and can be arranged by calling the winery at 866.895.7696.
