DW | California Head-to-Head: Napa vs. Sonoma with James Corbin

Wine Regions Head-to-Head!

Napa vs. Sonoma Wine with James Corbin 

One of our favorite dinners to host every year, and always an exciting time with our friend James Corbin of Grapevine Distributors. We’ll taste four pairs of wines, each a head-to-head between Napa and Sonoma. Are you team Russian River Valley or Carneros? Rutherford or Alexander Valley? We’ll vote on the winner of each flight and the all-around champion.

May the best wine (region) win!

Check back soon for a multi-course menu from chef Brian Lombard!
