Walt Wines Presents Mile Marker 60: Clos Pepe Estate Vineyard Experience

Clos Pepe Estate Vineyard

WALT Wines is hosting the official kick-off experience for the 20th Anniversary of the World of Pinot Noir at the Clos Pepe Estate Vineyard, located on Route 246. The event, coined as Mile Marker 60 referencing WALT’s 1,000 Miles of Pinot concept, includes a vineyard tour, moderated panel conversation alongside a vertical tasting, and a backyard BBQ with live music.

Guests will embark on a guided shuttle from the The Ritz-Carlton Bacara to the Clos Pepe Estate Vineyard for an experience focusing on vineyard site, winemaking from the coveted vineyard + the ageability of wines produced from the site. Upon arrival guests will stroll through the Clos Pepe vineyard and learn about the distinct characteristics of this special site. A high profile, winemaker panel featuring Ambassador Kathryn Walt Hall, WALT Winemaker Megan Gunderson, Winemaker Adam Lee, Clos Pepe Vineyard Owner Stephen Pepe and moderated by WALT General Manager, Jeff Zappelli will focus on a vertical wine tasting experience.

The panel conversation and wine tasting will showcase a selection of library, current release and barrel samples of wines sourced from Clos Pepe Vineyard, paired with the dynamic and engaging personalities of this esteemed group of winemaking talent. Afterward, guests will then be invited to enjoy a hosted backyard BBQ catered by The Hitching Post 2 and boogie down with a country music performance by country music recording artist, Anderson Daniels. All guests will leave with a signed copy of Kathryn Hall’s New York Times Bestseller, A Perfect Score.
