Description
Join us on Wednesday, February 24th, from 4:30-7:30pm, as we welcome special guests Tom Garrett, John Garrett, and Bill Cover, owners of Detert Family Vineyards. Located along the western foothills of Napa Valley’s celebrated Oakville district, adjacent to the historic To Kalon estate, the Detert family vineyard has grown outstanding Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon since 1953. Their production is tiny, making a total of less than 500 cases annually. Their grapes are highly prized and are purchased by many of the top echelon Napa Valley wineries.

There is no better way to experience what a vineyard expresses than tasting a multiple year vertical from one source. Through the generosity of the Detert folks, we are able to present five consecutive years of Cabernet Franc from this precious soil. You will see first hand what a wonderful grape Cabernet Franc can be, and how the Detert Cabernet Franc develops over time. It is absolutely glorious! Don’t Miss It!

We are sure you will enjoy meeting this dedicated group that is carrying on a tradition that goes back four generations in one family. There is no doubt you will appreciate tasting this rare vertical of delicious Napa Valley wines from Detert Family Vineyards at Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant.
