Opus One Virtual Wine Tasting with WineStyles of Montclair
October 28 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Have you ever wanted to taste a world renowned ultra premium wine in the comfort of your own home without having to purchase the entire bottle? Do you want to know what all the fuss is about when it comes to these iconic wines everyone swoons over?
We are excited and honored to announce a very special Zoom Virtual Spotlight with Opus One Winery representative Emmanuel Padilla on Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. featuring the 2017 releases of Opus One and Overture. We will be treated to a presentation and discussion of the history, tradition and winemaking of this iconic Napa Valley Winery.
Each year, WineStyles of Montclair is fortunate enough to receive one of the largest allocations of Opus One and Overture (2nd label) in the region. These bottles sell out within hours and are usually reserved for our Collectors Club (IYI) members. Some of you have been fortunate enough to receive a very limited VIP invitation in years past and have come in to taste the wines and experience the history, quality, and rarity of an American icon.
Opus One is a wine collectors staple and a gift that will definitely turn a few heads during the holidays. It is truly a collectors item that gets better with age and has historically been a very good cellar investment. Since its first release in 1984 (the 1979 and 1980 vintages) the price of Opus One older vintages has shown an increase in value as seen in the great First Growth Chateaus in Bordeaux.
Wine Enthusiast recently listed Opus One as one of “California’s Top 10 Collectible Wines” among the ridiculously priced Screaming Eagle, Harlan Estate, and Colgin Estate. They note….
“Napa Valley producer Opus One is a French-American wine estate located in Oakville. It was founded by two larger-than-life figures in 20th-century winemaking, local icon Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Bordeaux, who came together in pursuit of a classic, age-worthy red wine from Napa grapes through traditional French techniques.
While Rothschild owned the first-growth Château Mouton-Rothschild and brought instant celebrity to the venture, the wine wouldn’t have become such a success if it didn’t live up to that hype. The duo built a monumental winery, and, within only a few years, their enologists perfected the wine’s layered, sculpted style. Eventually, Opus One became the first American wine sold through négociants on La Place de Bordeaux alongside the elite classified growths.”
