Honig Napa Winemaker Dinner with Owner Michael Honig
The team at Mr. B’s – A Bartolotta Steakhouse – Mequon is honored to host the incredible award-winning wines of Honig Vineyard & Winery. We are excited to host winery owner Michael Honig for this unique wine dinner.
In 1964, Louis Honig purchased a 68-acre ranch in Rutherford, in the heart of the Napa Valley. The vineyard was planted with Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, which he sold to neighboring wineries. Louis worked to create a family gathering place at the ranch, for his children and grandchildren, while he dreamed of the day he could retire from his San Francisco advertising agency and make wine from his vineyard. Louis passed away before he could realize his dream, leaving the estate to his family. In 1984, at the age of 22, grandson Michael Honig took over management of the vineyard and winery.
In 1989, the family began producing small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon. In what began as a small “garage” winery has today become a successful family enterprise and recognized leader in sustainability, and an inspiring and socially responsible business. Winemaker Kristin Belair focuses production solely on Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, and Honig wines can be found on the wine lists across the country. Louis Honig’s vision of bringing his family together to share in the beauty and bounty of Napa Valley, while producing outstanding wines, has become a reality.
Executive Chef Amber Dorszynski has created a four-course menu to pair with these highly-rated wines from Napa Valley. Purchase your tickets today to experience this delicious wine dinner and get to know more about Michael and Honig wines.
