We are extremely excited to announce a very rare dinner with Christian Moueix, one of the world’s most celebrated wine producers.

 

Even putting the incredible work in Pomerol and St.Emilion aside (and that is saying quite something) Christian has been on a mission to achieve perfection in the vineyard and cellar from his studies as a young man in Paris through to the present day. His postgraduate studies at the University of California, Davis in the late sixties kindled his love affair with the Napa Valley and its wines. In 1995, he became sole owner of Dominus Estate, west of Yountville. The historic farm of Napanook incorporates the “Master” Dominus, younger sibling Napanook and, now in its 5th vintage, Othello, a wine which Christian modestly declares to be for casual dining. In 2008, he acquired further vineyard holdings in Oakville, from which his newest wine, Ulysses was born.

 

The philosophy he instilled whilst overseeing the family’s properties in Bordeaux is replicated here in the Napa Valley; a rigorous commitment to the land, focus on vine health and sustainability. Almost obsessive attention to the vineyard allied to minimal intervention in the cellar makes for ageworthy wines of supreme elegance and complexity.

 

Christian is a passionate and eloquent speaker. This promises to be a tremendous evening (though of course we are rather biased!).
