Diamond Creek Winery
Dinner | 7 p.m. | the Atlantic Room | $210
Founded in 1968, Diamond Creek is California's first exclusively cabernet sauvignon Estate Vineyard. Visionary pioneer, Al Brounstein, defied modern conventions and planted Bordeaux varietals on the secluded Diamond Mountain. The three vineyards produce a small amount of long-lived wines that are elegant with great depth and richness and are likened to some of the top Bordeuxs. Son, Phil Ross, will discuss the differences imparted to the wine by the distinct soils and micro-climates of Diamond Creek Vineyards.
