We are honored to again welcome Ms. Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Master of Wine and the proprietor of The Wine Independent, for an epic comparative tasting experience with Scott Becker, the charismatic owner of Realm Cellars. We will taste most of Realm’s red wine portfolio against historic Napa reference vineyard selections. Mr. Becker wished to pay homage to the Napa Valley pioneers who have allowed his brand to rise to cult-like status and become known as Napa’s sexiest brand. This is a hot ticket. Consider yourself among the lucky few to score this golden ticket.

Realm Cellars

Realm Cellars is one of Napa Valley’s most electrifying wine brands with estate vineyards in Stags Leap District, Pritchard Hill and Coombsville. In 2012, owner Scott Becker and his partner, winemaker Benoit Touquette teamed up to revive a nearly bankrupt brand. Since then, Realm has been transformed into one of the most collected wineries in Napa Valley, with a vineyard portfolio that today exemplifies the beauty and longevity of Napa Valley.

In addition to its estate vineyard sites, Realm partners with Napa Valley’s most prestigious and iconic wine growers and vineyard sites, including Dr. Crane and To Kalon—producing some of the finest and sought-after wines in Napa Valley.
