FROG'S LEAP

Dinner | 7:00 p.m. | the Atlantic Room | $175

John Williams founded Frog’s Leap in 1981 with a commitment to sustainable and organic farming. His wines are considered some of the most age-worthy in Napa. In 2012, John realized a life-long dream of producing a one hundred percent estate cabernet sauvignon. John has been a longtime friend and host to the Boston Wine Festival. Tonight, John will present a remarkable lineup of wines with selected vintages from the past three decades of zinfandel, merlot, and cabernet. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
