The Lodge at Torrey Pines is set to feature some of the best California wineries for the inaugural Beyond the Cellar: A Fall Wine Collectors Tasting.
The AAA Five Diamond La Jolla resort will host the wine tasting and purchasing event on Saturday, November 13, 2021 from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m.
Beyond the Cellar is an event geared toward wine aficionados and collectors. Winemakers and winery owners will have the opportunity to showcase some of their rare and high-end vintages that are not readily available to the general public.
Wholesale pricing of featured wines will range from $100 to more than $1,000 per bottle. Just in time for holiday shopping, attendees will have the opportunity to purchase wine through the attending wineries at retail value. The majority of the bottles available for purchase cannot be found in stores or ordered online. Attendees will also be able to join the wineries’ wine clubs.
The Lodge at Torrey Pines Will Feature Sommelier Paul Krikorian
Curated by The Lodge’s Advanced Sommelier Paul Krikorian, Beyond the Cellar will feature highly coveted wines and experts from 18 Napa Valley wineries including Hundred Acre, Morlet Family, Chappellet Vineyards, Far Niente/Nickel & Nickel, Linked Vineyards, Ramey Cellars, Daou/Patrimony, Dana Estates/Marciano Vineyards, Pulido-Walker Winery, Malk Family Vineyards, Darioush, Abacus, Mirror Vineyards, Opus One, Spottswoode, Verite, Paul Hobbs, and Schramsberg.
Each featured wine will be poured by either the winemaker, owner or spokesperson, providing guests with an exclusive one-on-one guided tasting. Krikorian, along with other sommeliers, will be available throughout the event to provide expert insight and advice to attendees.
Wine tastings will be accompanied by artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, handcrafted chocolates, passed hors d’oeuvres, live entertainment by a string trio and a caviar and champagne greeting. Along with bottles and barrels from the wineries, guests will also have the chance to purchase fine glassware from Riedel, the premier wineglass and decanter manufacturer.
