Legends Club Dinner-Sept. 27

The Vineyard & Legends Club hosted a wine pairing to show The Gabrielle Collection of Napa Wines & Pietro Family Wines. This wine dinner was at the Legends Club Wednesday, September 27th starting at 7 PM.

The dinner was prepared by Chef Justin Hayes, voted Augusta Magazine’s “Best Chef.” The dinner was 5 courses along with Hors d’oeuvres.

They had the opportunity to taste and pair wines new to Georgia from Napa.
Gabrielle’s Estate Gardens Vineyard is only 20 acres located between Opus Estate and Caymus Estate. This is a very small production set of wines that comes from one of the most prestigious area of Napa! The cost of these wines are a steal compared to Opus & Caymus! Gabrielle Leonhard herself will be the presenter of this fine selection of wines.

Gabrielle Collection is a series of boutique, luxury Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons and Proprietary Cabernet Blends, that are inviting and food complementary wines. They show the artistry of Winemaker Gabrielle in their balance, suppleness and distinction as she brings the magic of the soil and sun into a glass of wine.

Gabrielle believes blending varietals and vineyards achieves the most expressive wine. Drawing from the organically farmed estate vineyard in the Oak Knoll Appellation as well as other from select sustainably farmed vineyards, where the climate and soil are best suited to produce each varietal perfectly, she creates wines with richness and complexity.
