Lot 28 / Puttin on the Ritz with Fritz and Friends

It’s April.  It’s Philbrook.  Not again until 2020.   So, four Napa Valley rockstars are going rare and grand to give you a wine experience of a lifetime with an amazing collection to boot!

Your VIP experience begins with a celebratory insider’s visit to the Hatton’s Victorian home at Arietta in Saint Helena for “education,” an audience with the three Bernese Mountain dogs, and the possibility of pianistic “prestidigitation” by hosts, Fritz and Caren Hatton. One of America’s most celebrated winemakers, Andy Erickson, crafts the Arietta wines from carefully chosen blocks in the cooler climates of Napa Valley. Continue your journey at the mountainside Keenan Winery where you will be treated to a gourmet wine dinner showcasing Keenan wines. Stop in at the beautiful Ehlers Estate with the original stone barn and vineyard at its heart to taste their famous cabernets. Top off your Napa wine extravaganza with a visit to Chateau Montelena, a stone castle carved into a hillside overlooking a Chinese garden, lake and vineyards reaching out to the base of Mount St Helena.
