Join us for a special evening in anticipation of the 28th Annual Manhattan Wine Auction. Longtime supporters and wine enthusiasts, April and Roger Spencer, will open their home to friends of the Manhattan Wine Auction for our Reserve Room Preview with Fe Wines on Thursday, November 4th from 6:00 - 9:00pm.
Fe (pronounced FEE) is the atomic symbol for iron, a substance that saturates the ruddy soil of Fe Wines. The vineyard occupies an elevated bench in the narrowest stretch of the Napa Valley, amid nearly two thousand acres of untamed parkland. This pocket of Spring Mountain feels far removed from the rest of wine country. Superstar winemaker, Aaron Pott, crafts this expression of unparalleled terroir and on November 4th, you will get to enjoy their two current releases.
Joseph Filippini, General Manager of Fe Wines, will be on hand to lead you through an incredible tasting experience, paired with a selection of hors d'oeuvres that have been curated to accompany the wines to be enjoyed throughout the evening.
