Cakebread Winery Pairing Dinner Menu
Saturday 15th March 2014
The Cakebread family, owners of Cakebread Cellars in Rutherford, are among the most creative and successful winery families in California's famed Napa Valley. Since its founding in 1973, the winery has developed a reputation for producing world-class wines. Its success is built on quality, consistency and continuity, characteristics which apply equally to the grapes, the wines, the people and the operation of the winery.
Unfortunately Bruce Cakebread himself is unable to make the dinner this year but his wines will be presented by Elon Biden from Kobrand.
Mark always enjoyes this annual events having visited the vineyards personally and drank all those wines with Bruce.
