More than a year into a global pandemic, we’re finally starting to see the horizon. Wineries in California’s famed Napa Valley have been abundantly creative in keeping us connected to their stories and their delicious wines, and now that the world is opening up again, Theorem Vineyards has given us a unique way to celebrate. The top-notch Diamond Mountain winery, best known for its flagship Voir Dire Cabernet Sauvignon, has joined forces with the legendary French glassware artisans at Baccarat to create an unparalleled tasting experience.
The Theorem Vineyards Baccarat Tasting Experience starts upon your arrival at the exclusive Diamond Mountain property with a glass of Champagne served in a Baccarat flute and an amuse-bouche. You’ll be led on a walking tour through the vineyards while you learn about the estate’s storied past and what the Theorem team is doing to preserve and extend the rich legacy of the place — including a stroll through the state-of-the-art winery where all the magic happens. Thomas Rivers Brown and Kathleen Ward make the property’s full portfolio of wines, which now includes Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah, in addition to the blockbuster Cab lineup.
By the time you finish your bubbly, you’ll have arrived at your table — situated either at a scenic outdoor lookout spot or in the open-air tank room — where Estate Chef Josh Mitchell will have laid out perfect food pairings prepared exclusively for this tasting on a Baccarat serving tray. The table is adorned with fine linens and and fresh-cut flowers in a spectacular Baccarat vase, with Baccarat candlesticks in the middle and a selection of Baccarat stemware designed for the various specific varietals at each place setting. This experience is a rare confluence of two world-class makers coming together for a heightened experience of wine, food and aesthetic pleasure.
You’ll taste three of Theorem’s high-elevation estate bottlings – the Moon Mountain Chardonnay, the Diamond Mountain Merlot and its signature Diamond Mountain Voir Dire Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the property’s friendly and knowledgeable hosts will be on hand to answer any questions you might have, from the basic to the esoteric.
As a keepsake, each guest will be able to choose one of the Baccarat glass styles, engraved with a phrase that’s meaningful to you, which will be shipped directly to your home address.
The Theorem Vineyards Baccarat Tasting Experience is by appointment only* for parties of up to eight people. The cost for the two-hour wine and food exploration is $750.00 per person, and it includes the Champagne welcome, winery walking tour, food-wine pairing and tasting, one engraved Baccarat stem per person, plus a parting Theorem Vineyards gift bag.
