Robert Foley Wine Dinner: Night 2 (GVL)
Robert (Bob) Foley began his wine making career in the Napa Valley in 1977, working at a number of highly regarded wineries including the famous Pride Mountain Vineyards, where he spent 15 years as founding winemaker. During this period he also created the highly acclaimed Switchback Ridge, Hourglass, Paloma, School House, and Engel Family wines.
In 1998 Robert Foley Vineyards bottled its flagship Claret and has since expanded and diversified its production to offer more of the big reds Bob is famous for – Petite Sirah, Merlot, Charbono, the limited-release Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon and Howell Mountain Merlot from our estate property, a Carneros Pinot Noir, a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, an Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon called Kelly’s Mountain Cuvée, a Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon, and The Griffin (a blend of the best in the red cellar).
Bob’s reputation for producing very expressive wines that finish gracefully continues to develop at his winery facility on Napa County’s Howell Mountain, where more than 1,500 barrels are housed in an extensive cave system (completed in 2008) for the production of Robert Foley wines. Robert Foley Vineyards has a full-time staff of four that works tirelessly at handcrafting the wines (Bob and Joaquin) and running the office (Bob’s wife Kelly and Shannon).
We’ve been huge fans of Bob for many years now and we know you’ll love meeting him and sharing a glass at Foxcroft!
