Enticing new alcove in the caves at Pine Ridge Vineyards is ideal for tastings and special events

NAPA, Calif. (November 15, 2016) – Michael Beaulac, winemaker and general manager of Pine Ridge Vineyards, is pleased to announce the opening of “Cellar 47,” an inviting new tasting alcove located in the caves of the renowned Stags Leap District winery.

Named for the 47 acres of estate vineyards that Pine Ridge Vineyards owns in Stags Leap District, Cellar 47 is perfect for VIP tastings and special events. Designed by architect Michael Guthrie, who has also designed famed San Francisco eateries such as Coqueta and Fog City Diner, Cellar 47 welcomes guests with rustic elegance.

“This new alcove is warm and intimate and provides a great place to showcase our Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon along with our other best-of-class Napa Valley wines,” said Beaulac.

After winding their way through the caves – past the world-class wines aging in barrel – guests can now have an experience that matches the quality of the Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon in Cellar 47. The new space is adorned with plush leather furnishings, live-edge redwood tables, and Persian-style carpets. Distinctive chandeliers, crafted in the Netherlands, were inspired by the roots of grape vines. The décor in Cellar 47 creates a warm and interesting contrast to the cave’s exposed rock walls.

Pine Ridge Vineyards winery will offer visitors two options for tasting in Cellar 47 daily. Savor Pine Ridge occurs every day at 11 a.m. It is a guided tasting of five estate Cabernet Sauvignons paired with small bites expertly crafted by the winery chef. The Appellation Tasting takes place daily at 2 p.m. and features a vertical tasting from one of four prominent Napa Valley appellations – also complemented by a food sampling.

Cellar 47 is Napa Valley’s newest venue for exclusive parties up to 30 people and is ideal for memorable gatherings like rehearsal dinners, milestone birthdays and corporate functions. Cellar 47 can be booked by calling 800-575-9777 or by emailing Concierge@PineRidgeWine.com.
