Please join us for the second in our spring winemaker dinner series as we showcase the sublime wines from Russian River Valley producer PAPAPIETRO PERRY.
The story of Papapietro Perry Winery began in a garage with two friends, Ben Papapietro and Bruce Perry, who were bitten by the winemaking bug. They started making wine, as both of their grandfathers had, for the enjoyment of their families and friends. Like their grandfathers, they were good at it - so good, in fact, that by the 1990s they decided to produce their "garagiste" wines in commercial quantities and Papapietro Perry Winery was born.
When the fun-loving partners are asked today what style of wine they make, they always respond, "Great wines." They believe in a minimalist approach, sourcing grapes from the finest Pinot Noir and Zinfandel vineyards available. With the best grapes from the best vineyards, they proceed lightly, allowing the nuances of each vintage to be recognized.
The name Papapietro Perry is frequently found in the most respected wine industry publications. Wine Spectator named it one of the top 20 Pinot Noir producers and honored it with their Critics' Choice Award.
These are elegant, explosive examples of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel from California's Sonoma Valley.
We've hosted a three great events with Papapietro Perry over the past 11 years and I'm thrilled to have them back for a very special dinner at Dressler's Metropolitan. We are honored to once again be hosting this dinner with estate proprietor, the very lovely YOLANDA PAPAPIETRO (seen above @ right).
For this Petit Philippe exclusive event, we'll be pouring the Peter's Chardonnay, two labels of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, their Anderson Valley Pinot and the Dry Creek estate Zinfandel. It's one heck of a lineup - five beautiful wines from this boutique winery.
We look forward to showing you just how special the wines are, as we host the winery for one evening, with a brilliant menu by Exec Chef Nick Stewart of Dressler's Metropolitan.
This is a private event and special vintner-hosted wine dinner. Reservations can be made by calling the store and pre-purchasing your seat.
