Heitz Cellar Legacy Dinner – Heitz Cellar accompanied by Krug and Hennessy
Friday, June 14 | 7 pm | Element 47 | $1200++
This evening brings a trio of wine industry titans together for a meal not-to-be missed. Krug Grand Cuvee Rose, a selection from Heitz Cellar and Hennessey Cognac will complement a seasonal tasting menu from Executive Chef Matt Zubrod. A representative from Krug will be in attendance and we’ll welcome back former Little Nell Wine Director Carlton McCoy, in his new role as the CEO of Heitz Cellar, joined by the estate’s winemaker, Brittany Sherwood. Together, they will guide guests on a journey through decades of the classic wines of Heitz Legacy Collection and share details about the history of Heitz Cellar, which was founded in 1961 by Joe Heitz whose objective was to make California’s most elegant, well balanced and pure Cabernet Sauvignon based wines. After a long stint as assistant winemaker under Andre Tchelistcheff at Beaulieu Vineyards, Joe honed his craft and perfected what has come to be known as the “Heitz Method.”
