Drink Iconic Napa Valley Cabernet & Help Fire Relief Efforts (VIDEO)
2014 Appellation Collection: Give the Gift of Good Wine that Gives Back
In this episode of Wine Oh TV, Monique Soltani heads to the Napa Valley where the wine community has come together rebounding after wildfires rocked the region. Find out what impact the fires will have on the 2017 vintage, hear first hand from winemakers who fought to save their vines, and discover how giving the gift of good wine could help give back to our neighbors in need.
Monique Soltani stops by the Stags Leap District, a neighborhood in the Napa Valley known for crafting world class cabernet. She talks with Chimney Rock Winery winemaker, Elizabeth Vianna and Ted Henry, winemaker at Clos Du Val Winery. They help put out any wildfire misconceptions, give us a taste of the 2014 Stags Leap District Appellation Collection, and share their thoughts on what makes Cabernet from the Stags Leap District so special.
How did the Stags Leap District fare in the wine country fires?
The Stags Leap District was impacted by the Atlas Peak Fire as flames came fast and furious over the ridge and down the Palisades along the eastern side of the district. Fortunately damage to the wineries and vineyards of the district was minimal.
