Staglin Wine Dinner
Founded in 1985 by Shari, Garen, Brandon, and Shannon, Staglin Family Vineyard takes pride in the tradition of family ownership and participation. With an uncompromising commitment to quality, our mission is to produce world-class wines that reflect the distinctive character of this historic Rutherford Bench estate.
The team at Bacchus is excited to welcome back Wisconsin-native Amber Mihna, National Sales Director at Staglin Family Vineyard, for a Piedmont-inspired dinner crafted by Bacchus Executive Chef Nick Wirth, paired with carefully selected wines chosen by CMS Advanced Sommelier Katie Espinosa.
