Oh What A Night We Had!

Every year, we put on an exclusive event for our UltraMont wine club members.  This small group represents the highest tier in our membership structure.

Two weekends ago, we hosted this event, which was a day and a half affair.  It started with a welcome reception at Judy Barrett’s home.  She is one of the owners of Chateau Montelena Winery.  We were truly appreciative to have this opportunity and our UltraMont members were over the moon.  Judy was a very gracious hostess and was seen often helping out in the kitchen.

Our event continued with an educational component where our members learned what types of wood are used to make a barrel, how to make one as well as how the different woods can affect the taste of the wine.  The day portion ended with a lunch and then our members had ample time to relax and enjoy the Valley on their own.

The event culminated with our first ever formal dinner.  The Harvest Moon Dinner Dance was offered in a tented space at the winery.  All of the members, including the staff, dressed for the occasion.   We even had our own paparazzi and red carpet.  Fantastic food from one of our own CellarMaster members, Tony Spleen.  And rockin’ music from the band, The Special Guests.   A good time was had by all!!!

We look forward to seeing our UltraMont members again next year.   Who knows…this might be a tradition!
