Wine and Cigars




In May we debuted our 2007 VELLUM Cabernet Sauvignon at release parties around California to great success. However, on June 24th for the first time VELLUM's 2007 vintage was presented in Napa at BakerStreet Downtown.

We were fortunate enough to have our wine paired with the world renowned cigar brand C.A.O. International. So, as an unapologetic cigar lover it was my honor to have VELLUM match so well with my long time favorite CAO Brazillia label.

It was a classic pairing brought together by Brenda Roberts, the proprietor of BakerStreet Downtown. I want thank her for this enriching experience and I was very pleased to see how well the Napa Valley community received our first wine.

I also want to extend a special thanks to Frank Kapp and Ed Trevino from C.A.O. International. Their insight, understanding and shared appreciation for the craftsmanship of cigars and wine made for a complete evening.

And...Thanks again to all in attendance - we hope to see you again at future events!
