A Toast to Meadowood Napa Valley
  California Travel News ( Press Release )

Where Every Bottle of Wine in the Cellar Is Now Available By-The-Glass
Napa Valley, California, June 2003: When a guest in The Restaurant at Meadowood asks, "What wines do you have by the glass?", the answer is an enthusiastic "Anything on the list!"
At Meadowood, located in the heart of America's preeminent wine region, guests may now choose to sample a glass from the property''s extensive Napa-centric wine collection without having to commit to an entire bottle.
The program was conceived by John Thoreen, Director of The Wine Center at Meadowood. The wine pour is 6 oz. and the price for a glass is one-quarter of the bottle price. For bottles priced over $100, there is a two-glass minimum.
With more than 225 Napa Valley wineries represented and over 400 wines on the list, The Restaurant becomes a prime destination for wine lovers wanting to explore the broadest representation of Napa Valley wines in one location. Many wines on the list are not readily available to the public, which makes this the perfect place to experience the best the region has to offer. Additionally, numerous wines in the collection have very limited production, so the inventory changes frequently.
Meadowood keeps meticulous records for every bottle that is opened and each is gassed and stored with proper climate control to ensure quality and flavor retention. Additionally, the service staff consults the list of open bottles frequently and communicates availability to the guests.
"Just the other night," says Thoreen, "a couple dining in The Restaurant took the spirit of the program to a new level! To create the ultimate wine experience to complement a five-course tasting menu, their wine-by-the-glass selections included Far Niente Chardonnay, Du Mol Pinot Noir, and Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon, among others. Their total wine bill came to $700. But, if they'd bought a full bottle of each the total would have been closer to $1500. A few tables away, on learning a bottle of Screaming Eagle was open, two other guests jumped at the opportunity to add this wine to their list of by-the-glass selections for the evening."
For information on Meadowood, please call 800-458-8080 extension 216 or visit the property''s web site at www.meadowood.com. To reach The Meadowood Wine Center directly, please call 800-458-8080 extension 221.
