The Setting Wines Tasting (Healdsburg)
Enjoy a private one hour tasting of The Setting Wines, including their highly acclaimed Alexander Valley Cabernet which was awarded a 94 point rating by Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator and James Suckling.com.This blend is a stunning example of Alexander Valley Cabernet with an elegantly structured balance and a beautifully rich, silk-like texture.

The Setting Wines is the vision of three friends who truly believe that great wine becomes an unforgettable experience when it is enjoyed in the perfect Setting. Your tasting will be held at Limerick Lane Cellars, a thirty-acre estate located in the Russian River appellation of Sonoma County, just south of Healdsburg.

Exceptional custom blended wines - Napa Valley Cabernet and Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc, in addition to the Alexander Valley Cabernet - round out The Setting's collection. The wines are sourced from grapes that come from some of the best vineyards in California, handpicked based on their location within each appellation. Pairing precision farming and detailed, nuanced winemaking techniques extract the deepest expression of each vineyard.

The Setting Wines made national headlines in November 2017 when a rare bottle of the 2015 Alexander Valley Cabernet became the most expensive single bottle of wine ever sold in the world. It was purchased at Carnivale du Vin, Emeril Lagasse Foundation's annual charity wine auction and gala?for the recording breaking price of $350,000! The bottle was part of a limited edition of The Setting Wines, created by The Setting Winemaker Jesse Katz for famed Hollywood manager Shep Gordon. Katz has also worked alongside Tony Hawk, helping him develop a custom blend for The Tony Hawk Foundation and Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, in which he created a custom blend for their wedding. Katz has been named 40 Under 40 Tastemaker by Wine Enthusiast and was the first winemaker on the Forbes 30 Under 30.

Dinner at Valette
Enjoy a 5-course tasting menu at Valette, just a short walk down the street from Jesse Katz' tasting room. Valette has quickly become one of the best restaurants in the Napa and Sonoma region, recognized by Wine Enthusiast as one of America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants. Zagat's review calls it a shining star, describing Valette as "first-class California menu meets high expectations". It's a big hit with locals and local vintners, who enjoy the rustic space with locally sourced dishes. Chef/Owner and Healdsburg native Dustin Valette crafts an elegant and imaginative menu from Sonoma County's finest seasonal ingredients.
