Wine Dinner: Gallica

gallica wine dinner menuPlease join Wine & Beer Director Troy Revell and special guest Rosemary Cakebread, Gallica winemaker, on Thursday, April 18th at 6:30pm for a gorgeous wine dinner at The Fearrington House.

Gallica is nestled in the heart of Napa Valley amongst historic vineyards, coastal oaks, our gardens and olives. Heritage Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon are rooted in gravelly Cortina soils ambling off nearby Sulphur Creek. Our home is a handsome barn, contemporary and fresh, standing side by side with weathered vines.  We strive to practice lightly touching the land from the tending of our vines, thoughtful winemaking methods, to the simplicity of our packaging, Winemaker Rosemary Cakebread’s vision for a wine of her own, eventually called GALLICA, grew slowly.

Inspired by earlier work at prestigious properties in both Napa Valley and Bordeaux, wines were made and a brand grew. The philosophy is a simple one: to craft elegant single vineyard wines farmed organically which accurately depict the site and the story of each unique vintage. GALLICA makes Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Albariño, Syrah and limited bottlings of estate Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah. The brand symbol is a tribute to the ancient rose, their aromatics, and enhancement to winemaking. We love what we do and are fortunate to call Napa Valley home.

Rosemary has earned her reputation for excellence quietly. She is known for making distinct wines notable for restraint and elegance. A graduate of University of California Davis’ Viticulture and Enology program, she was introduced to Cabernet Sauvignon at the historic Inglenook Vineyards. From early cellar jobs to a winemaking position with Spottswoode Vineyard and Winery, Rosemary has built her career around a love for wine. Her appreciation and interest in aromatics and blending was born from work with sparkling wine at Mumm Napa Valley. Of course, making wine also means logging hours and miles in the vineyard throughout the growing season. Rosemary can often be found where she most enjoys being- outdoors in the home vineyard or amongst the vines on the properties we are fortunate to collaborate with.

Stay tuned for Chef Paul Gagne’s 5-course dinner menu that will pair with 7 memorable wines. Gallica has kindly made available their 2013 Suzuri Syrah blend and back vintages of Gallica Cabernet from the 2012 and 2018 vintages to include in this lineup — you’ll have the opportunity to order what you tasted for your home cellar. The class will take place on The Garden Terrace next to The Fearrington House Restaurant.
