    It’s the coolest night in hot South Beach when some of the country’s best burger makers get together to show off their unique interpretations. Set on the white-sand beach of The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach, this annual competition takes the humble patty – beef, of course, plus a few non-traditional entries sure to please – and elevates it to an art form. What savory bliss lies between the buns is yours to discover. As you munch, and in between sips of perfectly chilled Amstel Light, vote for your favorite. Hostess Rachael Ray will announce the winner and bestow bragging rights for the next year. Then end the night with the number one chocolate chip cookie in the world and other assorted to-die-for desserts from Levain Bakery and a cold, comforting confection from Jeni’s Ice Creams, artisanal goodness borne from the freshest ingredients.

    NEW THIS YEAR: A special 45 minute preview reception ($300 not including tax and service fee) for a limited number of lucky Burger Bash enthusiasts. Enjoy the luxury of elbow room as the doors fly open for you at 6:15 pm instead of 7:00pm and watch Rachael Ray meet and greet all Burger Bash chefs as she tours and tastes. A portion of the proceeds from the preview reception will benefit Rachael's Yum-o!® Foundation, a nonprofit organization that empowers kids and their families to develop healthy relationships with food and cooking by teaching families to cook, feeding hungry kids and funding cooking education and scholarships.

              Patrón and Aaron Sanchez open up the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival, and the floor, to some hotly contested debates, as created for Patrón by Tasting Table. It's up to you to settle the argument once and for all, at least until the next party. Margarita: rocks or frozen? Cocktails: classic vs modern? BBQ: Texas vs Carolina? Raw: sushi vs crudo? Or the ultimate, blonde or brunette? Come on in, the water will be warm at the W South Beach–and the music even hotter. DJ Irie will be doctoring the debate and taking your temperature on East Coast vs West Coast rap, Rock or Pop, and much, much more, including acclaimed culinary talents Sanchez and Todd English, stepping away from the stoves and picking up their shakers for a head-to-head cocktail competition. Step up. Get down. Be heard. Live Patrón. Drink Responsibly.

                If you long for the pleasures of sweet-salty-finger-licking goodness elevated to gourmet perfection, then the breezy, chic, totally happening BubbleQ will suit your fancy. Beneath a star-filled sky and atop the soft white sand of the Delano’s private beach, this signature party beckons with non-stop temptations: serving station after serving station of juicy grilled meats and succulent seared seafood, fire-roasted vegetables, and all manner of spicy, creamy, crunchy side dishes and daring, decadent desserts, including specialties from eCreamery, not to mention endlessly flowing Perrier-Jouët Champagne, the epitome of excellence and extravagance. And for the first time in BubbleQ history, Graffigna wines from Argentina will add yet another layer of excitement and their chef ambassador will prepare a dish to compliment the wines in a daring and sophisticated fashion. Making the festivities all the grander, the legendary Emeril Lagasse will personally welcome you amid the flutter of excitement generated by some of the country’s greatest chefs plying their trade. The party launches with a warm SoBe hello from Jeffrey and Linda Chodorow of China Grill Management and publisher Christina Grdovic and editor-in-chief Dana Cowin, both of Food & Wine. Truly a night in SoBe heaven!

                If visions of glorious barbecue and heavenly Champagne are already dancing in your head, the Perrier-Jouët BubbleQ VIP Reception ($450 not including tax and service fee) should make you positively dizzy! A limited number of lucky BubbleQ patrons can enjoy early access to the festivities (7:00 p.m. instead of 7:30 p.m.) and totally indulge themselves on delicious barbecue and Perrier-Jouët Fleur de Champagne before the night really begins. Mingle with host Emeril Lagasse, take your first soothing sips, breathe in the ocean air and get into the mood before everyone else even gets in!

                                  Hornitos Tequila welcomes late-night revelers to experience Mischieve in the Garden of Agave. Guests enter through a cloud of fog where they will be greeted by beautiful agave girls serving unique “Hornitails” beverages in which Hornitos—the 100 percent pure blue agave tequila—mischievously replaces non-tequila based spirits in classic cocktail combinations like the "Hornipolitan", "Horni Wallbanger" and "Juan Collins". Throughout the night artists, performers and dancers will help set the scene. While hundreds of adventurous night-crawlers show their moves on the dance floor, others have the chance to reveal their mischievous side in the privacy of the Hornitos Mischieve photo booth. You don’t want to miss this party… just remember to Always Mischieve Responsibly.

                                    No other so-called Happy Hour ever had it so good!

                                    Join renowned wine expert and educator Kevin Zraly as he translates the world of wine in just 60 minutes. The former wine director for the World Trade Center's Windows on the World restaurant, Kevin first gained fame for creating the best-selling wine list in the country. He later emerged as the nation's foremost wine educator with his Windows on the World Complete Wine Course, the best-selling wine book in the U.S. With his characteristic high-octane, witty style, Kevin's approach to teaching wine is to strip away the intimidation and make the voyage of discovery both fun and approachable. In this fast-paced and entertaining session, Kevin will guide participants through a tasting of six wines from six major grape varieties: Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. During the "60 Minute Wine Expert," participants will expand their wine vocabulary as Kevin demystifies the usage and meaning of common wine terms such as acidity, tannin, oak and fruit, and learn helpful tips to address the often daunting task of pairing wine and food.  Kevin will also discuss the lies, myths, and misconceptions about wine, the differing ways people taste wine, emerging wine regions, and how to find the best value within any budget. In October, Kevin will debut the 25th anniversary edition of the Windows on the World Complete Wine Course (Sterling Publishing), the perfect companion guide for those who wish to keep learning.

                                          Superstar chef Daniel Boulud has come a long way since his childhood on the family farm in Lyon, France. No stranger to feeding presidents and kings, not to mention show-business royalty and titans of high finance, the chef built his reputation as one of America’s leading culinary authorities in the highly demanding and critically exacting city of New York. With no fewer than ten award-winning restaurants to his credit (and others in the works), he remains a culinary innovator that towers among the giants in the field and commands an almost cult-like devotion from his legions of fans. Raised in a household that ran a café in the family home, serving his firsts kitchen apprenticeship at age 14 and going on to train with France’s most renowned chefs, the young Daniel honed the flawless French techniques that would figure so prominently in his later success.
                                          Yet for all his international success—his reach extends to restaurants in Vancouver and Beijing—Chef Boulud remains true to his upbringing, from which his culinary vision and long-held philosophy of cooking emanate.
                                           

                                          Chef Boulud’s trajectory of greatness skyrocketed in 1986 when he took on the role of executive chef at New York’s famed Le Cirque, during which time it grew into one of the most highly rated in the country. Soon after opening his self-titled Daniel in 1993, the restaurant earned a rating as one the top ten in the world by the International Herald Tribune, went on to garner a four-star rating from the New York Times, and just recently, in October of 2009, the restaurant earned the coveted three Michelin stars, making it just one of five in New York to have ever been so honored.

                                          Chef Boulud received Food & Wine’s Best New Chef Award in 1988, the James Beard Award for Best Chef of New York City in 1992, the James Beard Foundation’s “Outstanding Chef of the Year” in 1994 and “Outstanding Restaurateur” in 2006. In April 2007 he received the Culinary Humanitarian Award at the United Nations from the Adopt-a-Minefiled Foundation. The President of France made him a Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur in March 2006 in recognition for his contribution to the advancement of French culture.

                                          Tonight, some of the world’s most highly regarded chefs celebrate Mr. Boulud’s talent and pay homage to a career that foresees many years and accomplishments still ahead. The meal prepared will incorporate both the simplicity and boldness for which the guest of honor has earned international renown. The celebration will take place at the Festival host hotel, the Loews Miami Beach, a resplendent setting equal to this evening’s grand occasion. And Food & Wine’s Gail Simmons—once the special events manager for Chef Boulud’s restaurant empire—will host the festivities. A permanent judge on BRAVO’s Emmy—and James Beard Award–winning series Top Chef, she also makes frequent appearances at events and on television.

                                          Prior to dinner, guests will be treated to a Louis Roederer Cristal Reception beginning at 7 p.m., where everyone will enjoy a glass of Cristal 2002 accompanied by hors d’oeuvres prepared by executive chefs from some of Daniel Boulud’s own restaurants around the country. The jewel of the House of Louis Roederer, Cristal champagne was originally created in 1876 for the Tsar Alexander II of Russia. Only the finest will be served for this special occasion in honor of Daniel Boulud and this extraordinary line-up of chefs.

                                            Making your own dinner has never been so fun! Better than cooking at home, you’ll be sharing counter space with like-minded folks who agree, at least in this case, that too many cooks in the kitchen can make for a delicious end result. After a pasta cooking demo with Barilla Executive Chef Lorenzo Boni, the first lady of Italian cooking, Lidia Bastianich, brings her decades of experience, prized cooking secrets, and personal stories to the table as she offers detailed instructions and plenty of encouragement during the group preparation of tonight’s feast. For good measure, she’s also bringing along her son, Joe Bastianich, one of the country’s most influential restaurateurs and a man who knows his way around good food and exceptional wines, both of which will feature prominently at this lively gathering that ends with a sumptuous family-style meal, that you can then prepare for your family at home. As the presenting sponsor of this event, Barilla hopes to inspire and help families improve the quality of dinner together through the “Share the Table: The Barilla Family Dinner Project”. The preparation of a delicious meal is just one of the key ingredients to making mealtime more meaningful. As a special thank you for participating in this Interactive Dinner, ever guest will receive a complimentary copy of Lidia Bastianich's latest book Lidia Cooks from the Heart of Italy.

By the end of the evening, you will have enjoyed a full meal that draws upon contrasting tastes and experiences to leave you feeling both well fed and well traveled, all within the confines of Miami’s most happening neighborhood. Complete your night with a blowout Champagne and dessert reception at the Ornare showroom in the heart ot the Design District featuring Champagne Lanson and spectacular desserts by Sweet Street Desserts.

                                              Windows on the World operated as a restaurant and bar on the top floors of the World Trade Center North Tower from 1972 until the unspeakable tragedy of September 11, 2001. Known for its breath-taking views of the Manhattan skyline, exquisite cuisine, and strict dress code, the place embodied a spirit of fine dining and a pride in service embraced by all who worked there. Kevin Zraly was wine director from 1976-2001, and Michael Lomonaco was executive chef from 1997-2001. Through a re-creation of the originality and exacting standards once exhibited at Windows on the World, the men will bring to life a bygone moment in time, one in which coming together over a special meal in a special setting held value and meaning. Host Clay Conley will see to the details of the evening, which will take place in the opulent dining room of the beautiful Azul, of which he is executive chef. A protégé of the renowned Todd English, under whom he worked at Olives restaurant in Boston, Chef Conley employs a creative take on contemporary cuisine that has earned him critical success.

                                              To understand wine is to understand life itself. An ancient drink, wine has played a role throughout history and continues to inform our rituals today. For anyone who has ever enjoyed wine, this seminar series at the Gansevoort South offers a chance to take the pleasure to another level through important information that will make selecting and appreciating wines a much richer experience. This serious education focuses on key aspects of viniculture such as terroir (the characteristics of the land in which the grapes are grown), the varietal (the type of grape used to make the wine), technique, and aging, among others. Led by experts, each session provides an opportunity to deepen your knowledge of specific wines and identify the qualities of each that most appeal to you. Wine Spectator Executive Editor Thomas Matthews will introduce this session.


                                              Featured Seminars:
                                              1. Unforgettable tasting: '' La Vie en Rose by Pommery''
                                              Maison Pommery has always endeavored to uphold quality in the creation of its Rosé Champagnes that today help cement to the Maison’s international renown. Since 1836, Maison Pommery has shown its innovative flair with, for instance, the creation of Brut Nature in 1874 that prompted a real revolution
                                              in the world of Champagne.

                                              In 1928, Maison Pommery crafted the first Brut Rosé millésimé. In the second half of the 20th century, the Cuvée Louise Rosé with its legendary paleness, Springtime with its fruity flavor and Pink POP made up a unique range of flavors in Champagne. But there was one major missing link to start the 21st century and this has now been remedied with the launch of Rosé Apanage!

                                              This new cuvée Rosé, will be presented for the very first time in United States by Nathalie Vranken and Thierry Gasco, Champagne Pommery Cellar Master and the Creator of their Cuvées.

                                              Featured wines:

                                              2. Domaine Jean Grivot Seminar
                                              The Domaine will be showing an exceptional line-up with two of their flagship wines for a tasting of 4 vintages 2000-2002-2004-2007, with focus on one Premier Cru from Nuits-St-Georges and one Grand Cru, both the epitomy of the Burgundy Wine region and its greatness.

                                              Nuits-St-Georges Premier Cru "Les Boudots", one of the domaine's top wines produced from a very good vineyard plot of slightly over 2 Acres on the Vosne-Romanee side of Nuits-St-Georges Appellation. It combines the succulence of a Vosne-Romanée with the richness of a Nuits-St-Georges.

                                              Clos de Vougeot, one of the Grands Crus from the Domaine, was acquired in 1919 with a parcel of 5 Acres. Clos de Vougeot from Domaine Grivot is a full, powerful wine which is sometimes a little rough. It is robust when young and needs to be given time to mature and develop finesse and elegance. When it is mature it is a generous, velvety wine, full of truffles and scents of violets.

                                              Featured Wines:

                                              3. Opus One
                                              In 1978 Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Robert Mondavi sat together at Château Mouton Rothschild. In less than two hours the two gentlemen had created the dream of Opus One: 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 cultures.

                                              The first of its kind, the joint venture began in Napa Valley with its first vintage in 1979. Released with great fanfare in 1984, Opus One has since grown to world wide recognition. The iconic winery, which evokes the elegance and balance of the partnership, was completed in 1991.

                                              While always following a singular vision, the wines of Opus One have been fashioned over the years by different winemakers from Château Mouton and Robert Mondavi. Beginning with the 2001 vintage, Opus One wines have been made by one winemaker, Michael Silacci. This tasting will take a look at the evolution of grape growing and winemaking philosophy and techniques at Opus One.

                                              Taste is a mater of, well, taste. So when it comes to pairing food and wine, no one need be constrained by hard and fast rules. The flavors of different food can greatly influence your perception of wine and, conversely, different wines can impact your enjoyment of a dish. In this seminar, Wine Library TV's Gary Vaynerchuk will lead a tasting of red and white wines from around the world paired with the same plate of wild mushroom ravioli with truffles and sage demi-glace prepared by Chef Michael Gilligan of W South Beach. Some wines will compliment the food better than others, but you can bet that not everyone will agree on which wine works best. Sample each wine with and without the food to learn about both wine pairing and your own unique tastes.

                                                  In the history of the world, dim sum and disco have rarely, if ever, gone together. But that’s about to change! Fusion-forward Chef Ming Tsai and the Setai’s decorated Executive Chef Jonathan Wright, along with Chef David Muñoz Rosillo of DiverXo in Madrid , Chef Tim Cushman of o ya in Boston and Miami ’s Tropical Chinese Restaurant, will combine traditional Chinese small plates with Asian-inspired cocktails featuring Ty Ku and created by master mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim. For wine lovers looking for a new experience, Chateau D’Esclans will offer their upscale Rosé, which promises a perfect pairing for tonight’s featured food. And to spice things up a bit more, the big beat of DJ-spun ’70s and ’80s dance music will set the stage for a one-of-kind experience – all in the setting of the arrestingly beautiful, award-winning Setai. With the food, cocktails, music and location undeniably top notch, the only real question is: Are you bold enough to take your pork dumplings with a side of Donna Summer? Ready to chomp on spring rolls while shakin’ it to the Bee Gees? Can you survive juicy short ribs with Gloria Gaynor singing in the background? If you answered “yes,” then grab your friends and plan on spending one of the most amazing nights ever under a shiny ball.

                                                    Roll up your sleeves and tie back your hair, it’s time to get cooking celebrity chef-style. Scott Conant, a frequent judge on Food Network’s popular “Chopped,” has earned a loyal following in New York for his modern take on Italian cuisine and a reputation for pushing culinary boundaries. Today the chef of the award-winning Scarpetta—twice named a Best New Restaurant since its opening in 2008—and Barilla Executive Chef Lorenzo Boni invite you to join them in the kitchen. Under their guidance, you’ll do the heavy lifting for today’s luncheon and love every minute of it. We promise! The recipient of a James Beard Best New Chef award in 2004 and known for his innovative dishes, Chef Conant will teach you plenty that you can take home to try again later on friends and family, as it’s so important to “Share the Table” with the important people in your life. As the presenting sponsor of this event, Barilla hopes to inspire and help families improve the quality of dinner together through the “Share the Table: The Barilla Family Dinner Project”. The preparation of a delicious meal is just one of the key ingredients to making mealtime more meaningful. This afternoon you’ll play sous chef and whatever else it takes to help put a completed meal on the table. Sitting down to a delicious, multi-course lunch with Barilla pasta, served with great Italian wines, will be your reward.

                                                    To understand wine is to understand life itself. An ancient drink, wine has played a role throughout history and continues to inform our rituals today. For anyone who has ever enjoyed wine, this seminar series at the Gansevoort South offers a chance to take the pleasure to another level through important information that will make selecting and appreciating wines a much richer experience. This serious education focuses on key aspects of production such as terroir (the characteristics of the land in which the grapes are grown), the varietal (the type of grape used to make the wine), technique, and aging, among others. Led by experts, each session provides an opportunity to deepen your knowledge of specific wines and identify the qualities of each that most appeal to you. Wine Spectator Senior Editor Bruce Sanderson will introduce this session.


                                                    Featured Seminars:

                                                    1. Champagne Louis Roederer Cristal Vertical
                                                    Why study the merits of ordinary wine when you can be a student of one of the world's most sought-after champagnes? The jewel of the House of Louis Roederer, created in 1876 for Tsar Alexander II, Cristal is champagne at its finest, an inspired creation that embodies elegance and purity. It is made according to the strictest criteria, based on an exacting process of fruit selection that uses only the most celebrated pinot noir and chardonnay grapes from Louis Roederer’s own vineyards. This legendary cuvee has been known to melt hearts, make men weak and even turn "no" into "yes." Find out for yourself what sets Cristal apart when you take a trip through several vintages, including a taste of the rare Cristal Rosé - truly a journey for the discriminating. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to taste the most celebrated recent vintages of Cristal, shipped from the family cellars for this unique occasion.

                                                    Have you ever wondered what gives Champagne that laser-like precision, or why German Riesling is so refreshing?

Put your senses to the test with a tasting of Palm Bay’s top-rated prestige wines from around the globe.

                                                    Wineries featured for tasting in this seminar include Champagne Gosset, Col D’Orcia, Planeta, Bertani, S.A. Prum and others.

                                                    Join renowned wine expert and "ultimate wine educator" Kevin Zraly as he journeys through Italy from grape to glass in just 60 minutes. Kevin was the wine director for the World Trade Center’s Windows on the World restaurant from 1976-2001. Kevin first gained fame for creating the best-selling wine list in the country, then emerged as the nation’s foremost wine educator and author of Windows on the World Complete Wine Course (Sterling Publishing), the best-selling wine book in the U.S., which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary edition.

                                                    While the world of Italian wines is vast – Italy is the world’s largest producer of wine, with more than two thousand different wine labels, twenty regions, and ninety-six provinces – there is no finer translator than Kevin. In his hands, learning about wines is (almost) as fun as it is to drink, as he strips the snobbery and intimidation from a seemingly complex subject, making it a fun and approachable voyage of discovery for all the senses. In this fast-paced and entertaining seated session, Kevin will guide participants through a tasting of the seven quintessential Italian wines – Chianti Classico Riserva, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Brunello di Montalcino, Barbera, Barbaresco, Barolo, and Amarone. For those whose thirst for wine is only exceeded by their thirst for knowledge of same, Kevin’s “One Hour Italian Wine Expert” is a definite must!

                                                        Weekend brunch always sounds good, but in the hands of Paula Deen—and in the setting of the beautiful Loews Miami Beach, the Festival host hotel—you can bet it will be over-the-top good. Get ready for a late-morning meal that combines all the tastes of hearty yet elegant Southern comforts with the genuine Southern hospitality you’d expect from everyone’s favorite Georgia peach. Paula and friends Elizabeth Karmel, Katie Lee, Chris Lilly and Claire Robinson will together rustle up vittles that go way beyond traditional fare to create a memorable afternoon of buffet dining—did we mention the strong Bloody Marys?—perfect for sharing with family and friends. Y’all come!

                                                          If you think wine is for weekends only, think again! Mark Oldman, the best-selling author of Oldman’s Guide to Outsmarting Wine, and revered chef Johnny Vinczencz of Johnny V’s and Smith and Jones, will convince you that the everyday foods of life—such favorite comforts as pizza, meatballs, chicken wings, fried chicken, even chocolate bars—can reach whole new heights when paired with the correct wine. Let them show you how to turn your next dinner or late-night snack of so-called “guilty pleasures” into an exciting, satisfying experience.

                                                          To understand wine is to understand life itself. An ancient drink, wine has played a role throughout history and continues to inform our rituals today. For anyone who has ever enjoyed wine, this seminar series at the Gansevoort South offers a chance to take the pleasure to another level through important information that will make selecting and appreciating wines a much richer experience. This serious education focuses on key aspects of viniculture such as terroir (the characteristics of the land in which the grapes are grown), the varietal (the type of grape used to make the wine), technique, and aging, among others. Led by experts, each session provides an opportunity to deepen your knowledge of specific wines and identify the qualities of each that most appeal to you. Wine Spectator Senior Editor Bruce Sanderson will introduce this session.

                                                          Featured Seminars: 

                                                          1. The Antinori’s Interpretation of Sangiovese
                                                          The Antinori family is universally recognized for revolutionizing Italian winemaking with their innovative approach to producing Sangiovese at the family’s Chianti Classico estate, Tignanello. The estate and its namesake wine represent everything that is Antinori: a rich history marked by tradition and a spirit of innovation, a love for the terroir, and an ongoing determination to perfect their Sangiovese vineyards and wines.

                                                          For nearly 40 years, Marchesi Antinori has been experimenting with Sangiovese to achieve stylistic perfection from regional terroir, and this focused fascination motivated the family to develop Sangiovese wines at other important sites in Tuscany. These include the family’s Badia a Passignano and Peppoli estates in Chianti Classico, Pian delle Vigne in Montalcino and La Braccesca in Montepulciano.

                                                          A comprehensive tasting exploration of Antinori’s affection for Sangiovese will be led by Piero Antinori’s daughter Alessia who, along with her sisters Albiera and Allegra, represents the 26th generation of the family.

                                                          Riesling is quickly becoming one of the most popular varieties in America. Riesling’s style ranges from bone dry to dessert sweet and everything in-between. Its crisp, refreshing acidity make it a versatile wine to pair with a wide variety of foods. Join our panel of master sommeliers and masters of wine as they lead you through a tasting of some of the world’s greatest Rieslings from Germany, France, Austria, the United States, and Australia.

                                                          Domaine Chandon
                                                          In 1973 Domaine Chandon became the first French-owned sparkling wine venture in the United States. The famous Champagne producer Moët & Chandon and acclaimed Cognac maker Hennessy combined forces with the mission of producing world-class sparkling wine in Napa Valley. They identified prime vineyard sites on Mt. Veeder, in Carneros and Yountville, the location Domaine Chandon now calls home.
                                                          Chandon’s first sparkling wine was released in 1976. In 1977 the Visitor Center opened along with Domaine Chandon’s fine dining restaurant, now called étoile, introducing fine dining to the Napa Valley.
                                                          True to its pioneering spirit, Domaine Chandon was the first winery to introduce smaller containers to preserve delicate grapes during harvest and to use Pinot Meunier in its sparkling wines. Domaine Chandon also introduced the popular Blanc de Noirs style to American consumers. In addition to producing world-class sparkling wines, Domaine Chandon also produces a portfolio of still wines from the classic champagne varietals: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

                                                          Gloria Ferrer
                                                          Pioneers of sparkling wine from California’s Sonoma Carneros region, Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards is distinguished by a commitment to the highest quality fruit nurtured in hand-tended vineyards, thinned for low yields. Owned and operated by the Ferrers, the Spanish family behind the Catalan-based cava house Freixenet, the winery is named for José Ferrer’s wife, Gloria. Founded in 1982, Gloria Ferrer was the first sparkling wine house established in California’s Sonoma Carneros region. Today, the winery cultivates 385 acres of sustainably farmed vineyard land for its ultra-premium, award-winning sparkling and still wines.

                                                          Mumm Napa
                                                          Mumm Napa draws from the rich heritage of Champagne Mumm of Reims, France while integrating a unique Napa Valley style to make internationally respected wines of excellent quality. Ludovic Dervin carries on the inspiration that began with Guy Devaux in making Mumm Napa wines, bringing the ripe character of Napa fruit to the forefront while maintaining the classic balance and structure necessary in an outstanding sparkling wine. These wines are led by the prestige cuvée DVX one of the most honored California sparkling wines each vintage and named in honor of the winery’s founding winemaker, the late Guy Devaux.

                                                          Roederer Estate
                                                          Join us for a special look into California’s Anderson Valley with a tasting of Roederer Estate’s sparkling wines: the Non Vintage Brut and the 2002 vintage of their Tête de Cuvee, L’Ermitage.
                                                          Roederer Estate Brut is the first California sparkling wine to be produced by Champagne Louis Roederer, further building upon a 200-year tradition of fine winemaking from this family owned company. Roederer's unique winemaking style is based on two elements: complete ownership of its vineyards and the addition of oak-aged reserve wines to each year's blend or cuvée.
                                                          You will have an opportunity to experience the unique characteristics of this estate-bottled Anderson Valley wine, led by Master Sommelier Eric Hemer.
