Charton Hobbs' Kobrand California Collection - Charton Hobbs and Kobrand Wine & Spirits presented our members with an exclusive tasting of exceptional California wines from St. Francis, Benziger Family Winery, Sequoia Grove and Cakebread Cellars.
For over 30 years, St. Francis Winery has produced top-quality varietal wines from superior mountain and valley vineyards in Sonoma County, earning a reputation for bold, fruit-forward wines that showcase the terroir unique to Sonoma. The winery is notable for being the first in Sonoma to bottle Merlot as a varietal.
Benziger Family Winery is dedicated to crafting wines that reveal the true character of the vineyard, the grape variety and the vintage through certified sustainable, organic and Biodynamic practices. “Farming for flavours” is Benziger's trademarked sustainability program, certified each year by an independent third party. Benziger’s wines include Sonoma varietal wines and blends.
Sequoia Grove, founded in 1979, is a family-owned winery located on 22 acres in the heart of Rutherford, Napa Valley’s most prestigious Cabernet Sauvignon appellation. For decades, Sequoia Grove has been recognized for its commitment to crafting award-winning wines that emphasize finesse and balance from its Estate vineyards as well as through decades-long relationships with top Napa Valley growers.
Cakebread Cellars is a top-tier winery in Napa Valley, family owned and operated since 1973, with Estate vineyards in 13 sites totalling 451 vineyard acres in Carneros, Rutherford, Howell Mountain, Anderson Valley and other prime locations in Napa. The Cakebread Family is committed to sustainable production in both vineyard and winery.
We enjoyed a total of 12 wines during this sit down tutored tasting - a great cross-section of the portfolios of these four exceptional properties.
