Napa Valley red wines from the portfolio of Monsieur Touton Selection, Ltd. were sampled at Super Cellar Warehouse in Avon on Dec. 16, 2021. Presenter Kerry Brash poured Sutro Cabernet Sauvignon and Tate Mt. Veeder while educating holiday shoppers. From Healdsburg’s renowned Chalk Hill Road in the Alexander Valley, Sutro Wine Co. was founded by Alice Sutro, part of a fifth- and sixth-generation Sonoma County family, whose original ranch parcel has been in the family for over 100 years. The 265-acre ranch with Russian River frontage includes the Mayacama and Brooks creeks tributaries, the historic Chalk Hill, a lake, reservoir and a pond, as well as an 80-acre vineyard. Sutro wines represent a first in the family to produce vineyard designated wines from Warnecke Ranch property, using sustainable, regenerative and carbon-friendly farming practices. Tate Winery was founded in 2011 and is known for single expression wines from independently owned, micro-vineyards across the valley floor and mountain sides of the Napa Valley. Founded by husband-and-wife team David and Suzanne Tate, the team produces just over 1,000 cases annually of Chardonnay from Yountville, Merlot from Calistoga and single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons from St. Helena, Mt. Veeder and Howell Mountain.
