An Exclusive Dinner Featuring Napa Valley’s Iconic Stags’ Leap Winery – May 22nd

Join us on May 22nd for a gourmet four-course dinner at Michael’s on Simcoe with Stags’ Leap Winemaker and General Manager Christophe Paubert (bio). WineAlign’s Michael Godel will also be on hand to help guide you through this delicious, premium wine pairing dinner.

Christophe’s career has spanned the industry from sales to winemaking, and his impressive background includes positions at Chateau d’Yquem and Gruaud-Larose as well as projects in Chile, Spain and Washington State. But it was the terroir of Stags’ Leap that drew him to California. “I believe that wine should express the uniqueness of the land, and the Stags’ Leap wines have always showcased one of the most distinctive regions in the Napa Valley.”

On one of California’s earliest wine estates, a unique terroir and ideal microclimate support a classical standard of viticulture, land use, and winemaking that is as relevant today as it was over a century ago. An intimate valley within the greater Napa Valley, Stags’ Leap is a place of natural beauty, storied buildings and gardens, a lively history, and a reputation for elegant wines showing finesse and intensity.
