Burly Wine Dinner with Hank McCrorie: Night 1 (DW)
A Foxcroft Tradition: Hank McCrorie and Burly Wines!
Welcoming Hank McCrorie to Foxcroft has become a much-anticipated annual tradition. Not only is he one of our favorite hometown heroes but his wines are some of the most popular that we serve. Truly one of our favorite people in the world of wine! After a successful 40-year career in sales, Hank McCrorie (a Charlotte, North Carolina native) and wife Bernice (raised in Sonoma County, California) decided to build a retirement home in Napa Valley. While working in New York City, Hank developed a passion for elegant small production Napa Valley Cabernets, which subsequently created the desire to produce an outstanding wine himself.
The name for BURLY originates from founder Hank McCrorie’s college football days, when he was dubbed “Burly Bear” by the local paper. The nickname stuck among his teammates and given the bold nature of this wine, is more than a befitting tribute.
The oak tree display on the label is not only a symbol connecting the McCrorie’s childhoods – Hank growing up surrounded by the beautiful southern live oaks of North Carolina and Bernice the sprawling live oak trees at the family ranch in Northern California – but also embodies the intrinsic flavors of tannins and oak, balanced by the beauty of its velvety, rich and flavorful layers.
