The Quintessential Wine Experience
“Probably the most astounding example of hospitality in Napa, the Quintessential experience invites guests to relax in Khaledi's private cellar and select a bottle from his collection of Bordeaux, to be served alongside Darioush wines and small plates.”
- Wine Spectator Magazine, June 15, 2009
For over three decades, proprietor Darioush Khaledi has sought out the world’s finest wines, aspiring to create the quintessential collection. Having the belief that the true value in collecting wine is sharing with friends and family, Darioush welcomes you to an intimate 120-minute wine experience that is like no other. Quintessential was crafted for a connoisseur by a connoisseur, and is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to explore and indulge in the world’s most celebrated wines.
Begin your journey with a glass of Krug champagne and imported caviar, then descend the stairs to Darioush Khaledi's private wine cellar where you are welcome to peruse his extensive collection of such storied producers as Cos d'Estournel and Pichon Lalande. Allow us to select a bottle for you to taste alongside our Bordeaux-style Signature Cabernet Sauvignon, the true inspiration behind the Darioush estate. Each wine is expertly paired with amuse-bouche crafted by celebrated Napa Valley chef, Ken Frank of La Toque.
Quintessential is offered by appointment only for a tariff of $300. per person. Availability is limited; please RSVP directly to our Concierge at 707.257.2345 ext. 130, firstname.lastname@example.org or request your reservation online.
