WAVERLY | Keenan Wine Dinner

Keenan Wine Dinner

with

Reilly Keenan

 
Keenan Winery was started in the 1977 and is located in the Spring Mountain district of Napa Valley. The wines from this region often have softer tannins than their valley floor counterparts, but still exhibit Napa’s characteristic big fruit flavors. Keenan is well-known for their Mernet Reserve, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. Their vineyards are sustainably farmed, and the entire estate is powered by solar panels that they have lined across the edge of the vines.
 
Reilly Keenan, our guest speaker for the night, grew up on the estate and was immersed in wine culture from a very young age. Reilly is the third generation of Keenan’s to follow his love and passion for wine after his father Michael and grandfather Robert. He has a hand in every process from vine to bottle and is the perfect person to give us insight on all aspects of the winery from history to winemaking.
