Sterling Vineyards

So why not serve the same at your Oscar Party!

For the 6th year the Academy Awards will pour Sterling Vineyards’ specially created wines at the after gala ball with Wolfgang Puck’s menu for 1,500 guests and at the evening’s pre show reception.

VP of winemaking Mike Westrick describes the special line up, “The 2005 Red Carpet Reserve Cabernet shows notes of cassis, plum, blackberry and Asian spices. The Gold Standard Reserve Chardonnay offers aromas and flavors of toffee, vanilla, gala apples and Bosc pear. The Muscat Canelli is just luscious, with generous elements of apricot, honeysuckle, ginger and clove.” The Muscat is a new addition to the Oscar line up this year.

Only a few hundred cases of each vintage of Gold Standard Reserve Chardonnay and Red Carpet Reserve Cabernet are produced each year to celebrate the special night. Each bottle bears the winemakers’ signatures and this year is embossed with a stylized bronze cherry blossom to complement the Governors Ball’s Asian theme.sterling-vineyards-our-wines2
