We Have An Enormous Crush On C. Elizabeth Wines Here’s Why (VIRTUAL WINE TASTING)
C. Elizabeth Wines Shares the Love Buy Donating to Napa Valley Fire Relief
One enchanted evening, two decades ago, a duo of wine dreamers and lovers coupled up to make a one of a kind wine. A Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that would knock your socks off. One part devotion, one part emotion, and all parts passion, pushed this ambitious endeavor from dream to reality.
Fast forward to 2014, when vintners Dave and Christi Ficeli, alongside veteran Napa Valley winemaker Bill Nancarrow, were finally able to realize their dream with rarified fruit from what may be the rockiest plot in all of the Napa Valley – the “Rock Pit” at Game Farm Vineyard. Their C. Elizabeth Game Farm Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville is a complex, nuanced and deeply expressive wine.
Star Somm Chris Sawyer moderates this virtual vertical tasting featuring all four vintages of the C. Elizabeth Game Farm Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville. Join Christi and Dave Ficeli and Winemaker Bill Nancarrow, as we taste through the inaugural 2014 bottling to the current 2017 release.

“We are deeply indebted to the Napa Valley community for its generous, ongoing support of our family business. We were lucky to be spared in 2020, but many of our friends, neighbors, fellow winemakers and growers were not — and they continue to struggle. This program, in partnership with The Napa Valley Community Foundation, is the perfect way for us to show our love of community in difficult times.” – Christi and Dave Ficeli, Co-founders of C. Elizabeth Wines
“We are delighted to partner with C.Elizabeth wines in this important fundraising effort. Their donation, timed to Valentine’s Day and beyond, is an important and loving reminder that long after the flames are extinguished, fire victims still need our help – often for months or even years to come.” – Terence Mulligan, President of Napa Valley Community Foundation
C. Elizabeth Cabernet Sauvignon, Game Farm Vineyard is crafted with grapes from what may be the rockiest plot in all of the Napa Valley – the incomparable “Rock Pit” block. There, vine roots have to dig deep for water and nutrients, yielding a wine with exceptional depth, character and flavor that authentically reflects its pedigreed Oakville, Napa Valley site.
