Malescot Saint-Exupéry is a favorite amongst the wine team at Anhelo- so much so we serve the Gran Vin by the glass (beef wellington and an extra glass of MalescotSaint-Exupéry - so good)! The brilliant and forward-thinking oenologist, Michel Rolland, consistently strives for excellence – setting the bar higher with each passing vintage. The wines of Château Malescot Saint-Exupéry have consistently scored in the 90s for several decades with the past five vintages averaging 96 points!

This epic seven course dinner will dive deep into the mind and portfolio of this critically acclaimed winemaker (been involved with over 10 perfectly scored wines) as he personally guides us through his critically acclaimed Napa Valley Cabernets as well as Syrah in the style of Nothern Rhone. With experience at Colgin, Blankiet Estate and others- we could not be in better hands. This is one of Napa Valley’s cult wineries, they do not accept visitors and their waitlist is years long - but we get a night in Phoenix to enjoy this special occasion.
