Schramsberg Vineyards Dinner
The team at Bacchus – A Bartolotta Restaurant is thrilled to host a wine dinner with Fred Zammataro, part-owner of Schramsberg Vineyards. Fred Zammataro frequently travels across the country hosting events showcasing Schramsberg’s prestigious sparkling and red wines.
Schramsberg’s history dates back to the 19th century, when German immigrant Jacob Schram first made his home and started his winery on Diamond Mountain in California.
Over one hundred years later Jack and Jamie Davies would restore the Schramsberg estate in 1965. They set out to produce sparkling wine – specifically, “America’s most prestigious, select and admired sparkling wine; chosen for special guests, special gifts, pampering one’s self and expressing one’s taste in unique products.” Through the decades, this spirit of innovation earned Schramsberg and the Davies worldwide praise and recognition.
Schramsberg has also played a role in world history. The Blanc de Blancs was used for President Nixon’s 1972 “Toast to Peace” with China’s Premier Zhou Enlai. Schramsberg’s sparkling wines have been served at official State functions by every U.S. Presidential administration since.
Our very own Executive Chef, Nick Wirth, has developed a five-course menu that perfectly complements the season and the accompanying wines. Schramsberg grapes are grown on the northern coast of Napa, Mendocino, Sonoma, and Marin counties--some of the most prized fruit produced in all of California. Notably, most of Schramsberg’s winemaking practices are carried out by hand, adding to the prestige.
We invite you to join us on Thursday, October 21, 2021, for this unique opportunity to celebrate Schramsberg Vineyard’s beautiful wine pairings alongside our inspired menu!
