The team at Bacchus – A Bartolotta Restaurant is excited to feature the wines of Hourglass Vineyards on June 23. Jeff Smith founded Hourglass in 1997 from his family’s 4-acre parcel located just north of St Helena, where Napa Valley forms its narrowest point, the “pinch” of the Hourglass. And the storied Cabernet Sauvignon produced from this vineyard would begin the vision that continues to unfold today. The magic of this vineyard property would soon prove itself, as it debuted in a blind tasting alongside the “Cult Cabernet” giants of the day and held its own in that rare company.
Today, under the guiding hand of winemaker Tony Biagi, Hourglass continues to refine its approach and bring its estate wines to new heights of craft and expression. The team continually strives to farm their vineyards mindfully and produce terroir-driven wines of the highest character.
This Napa Valley winery suffered significant damage in the Glass Fire that started in late September 2020. The team at Bacchus is proud to host this dinner and continue to support this excellent winery. Executive Chef Nick Wirth and his team have created a five-course menu that pairs exquisitely with the featured wines of Hourglass Vineyards selected by Wine Director and Certified Sommelier Joseph Kane.
Make plans to join us as we welcome Michael Cooperman, National Sales Manager for Hourglass Vineyards, and a special dining event highlighting Hourglass Vineyards.
In addition to enjoying an exceptional dining event, guests will have the opportunity to purchase an additional wine pour of the exceptional 2012 Hourglass Estate Cabernet Sauvignon for $50.
