The Stags Leap District's House of Cab comes to Dallas

“We are thrilled to bring our House of Cab experience to our Texas-based Cabernet fans,” said Remi Cohen, Vice President and General Manager at Cliff Lede Vineyards and President of the Stags Leap District Winegrowers Association.

The Stags Leap District Winegrowers Association (SLDWA) announced today that tickets are now available for their first ‘House of Cab Dallas’ (#SLDhouseofcab) taking place September 26, 2017, at two venues within Trinity Groves in Dallas, Texas. At Saint Rocco’s restaurant, a handful of guests will be seated for a vintner-moderated blind library tasting of 13 Stags Leap District designated Cabernet Sauvignons from 1992-2010. At 3015, also at Trinity Groves, guests will have the only “Sneak Preview” tasting outside of Napa for the upcoming 2014 Stags Leap District Appellation Collection release and can meet vintners. Hors d'oeuvres will be provided by 3015 and Café Momentum with proceeds benefiting Café Momentum, whose mission supports at-risk youth with culinary, job and life-skill training as well as continued mentoring and support to foster successful re-entry into the community.

The Stags Leap District is an iconic American Viticultural Area (AVA) located on the eastern edge of Napa Valley. Barely one mile wide and three miles long, this tiny region is critically acclaimed for producing silky and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon that is known for its soft tannins. The distinctive climate and the region’s volcanic soils with bale loam overlay, qualified the area for AVA status in 1989. Today, approximately 90% of the 1,200 acres currently planted to grapevines in the Stags Leap District are Cabernet Sauvignon or other Bordeaux varietals.

“We are thrilled to bring our House of Cab experience to our Texas-based Cabernet fans,” said Remi Cohen, Vice President and General Manager at Cliff Lede Vineyards and President of the Stags Leap District Winegrowers Association. “Last year we hosted an invite-only House of Cab event in San Francisco and it was a huge success. We are excited to open this event to the public for the first time so that they too can enjoy world-class Cabernets in a setting that’s usually only open to industry insiders.”

“We are also honored to donate the proceeds from this event to Café Momentum, a restaurant training platform for juvenile offenders,” added Cohen. “They are mentoring and supporting at-risk youth and we are inspired by their work.”
