 Terroir to Table - Estate Cabernet Experience

Three Great Cabernets, One Great Estate: A Cabernet lover’s dream. This elevated experience will focus on three distinct, estate grown cabernets. For this unique experience, guests will be welcomed on the Farmhouse porch with our estate Cabernet Sauvignon, ‘RLC’. Named for the variations of rock, loam and clay soils found throughout the Crocker Estate Vineyard, RLC is the embodiment of Crocker & Starr as a concept. After a stroll in our vineyard and winery, guests will be seated for a tasting of Cabernet Sauvignon ‘Stone Place’. Sourced from the oldest vines on the estate, ‘Stone Place’ is from a 40+-year old block of Cabernet Sauvignon composed of the See clone. To complete the portfolio, guests will finish with our highly sought after, Cabernet Sauvignon ‘One Post’. The unique blend of heritage clone vines is sourced from Block 1, and named after the iconic San Francisco street address where Pam and Charlie shook hands and formed their partnership, over 23 years ago. 

Approximately 50 minutes, $100 per guest. By appointment only, offered Tuesday - Saturday. Book Now.
