Freemark Abbey Wine Dinner


Barry Dodds


Whether contemporary, pre-Prohibition, or late 19th century, history has always played an important part at Freemark Abbey. As one of Napa Valley’s oldest estates, how it could it not? Today, Freemark Abbey is many things to many people: a team of some of the most respected winemakers working in Napa Valley; a historic 1886 winery and pristine estate, with an enthusiastic hospitality program that highlights both; a collection of source vineyards up and down Napa Valley, representing several of California’s most distinctive terroirs; an extensive—and unparalleled—wine library that stretches back decades; and a winery that, because of its long history and international reputation, is one of Napa Valley’s true ambassador brands.

Join us for a night as we travel back to the beginning of Freemark Abbey and talk about the impact they had on the American wine industry with their 1969 Cabernet Sauvignon and 1972 Chardonnay being ranked amongst the best at the 1976 Judgement of Pairs. Barry Dodds, Estate Ambassador, will be our guest speaker for this exciting night of wine and history.
