Jesse Katz Wine Tasting
Enjoy a private tasting of highly acclaimed winemaker Jesse Katz’s new custom blend, The Setting, along with some of his other handcrafted wines, in downtown Healdsburg.

The Setting made national headlines last Christmas, when Broncos linebacker Von Miller gave every player in the AFC West a bottle of the wine along with a personal note – what a class act! You are in for a real treat when you taste this 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of beautiful red and black fruits that morph into a silky richness.

Jesse Katz was the first winemaker to make Forbes Magazine’s 30 under 30 “Rising Stars” list and has been recognized in Wine Enthusiast and Wine and Spirits “40 under 40”.

By the time he turned 18, Jesse had already traveled to the most famous winemaking regions in the world. His family had explored over sixty countries while following the works of his well-known photographer father, Andy Katz. His stays at Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Argiano, Sassaccia, and Domaine Leflaive left him with fond memories of playing in the vineyards and cellars of these legendary wine houses. His experience in California includes work for Bob Foley at Hourglass and at Screaming Eagle. As winemaker for both Lancaster Estate and Roth Estate since 2010, Jesse has brought to bear his handcrafted style of terrior driven winemaking in producing their most highly acclaimed wines to date.

Dinner at Valette
Enjoy a 4-course dinner with one bottle of The Setting wine per couple at Valette, just a short walk down the street from Jesse Katz’ tasting room. Valette has quickly become one of the best restaurants in the Napa and Sonoma region, recognized by Wine Enthusiast as one of America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants. Zagat’s review calls it a shining star, describing Valette as “first-class California menu meets high expectations”. It’s a big hit with locals and local vintners, who enjoy the rustic space with locally sourced dishes. Chef/Owner and Healdsburg native Dustin Valette crafts an elegant and imaginative menu from Sonoma County’s finest seasonal ingredients.
