A NOTE FROM HOWARD PAUL

As we jump into the month of August in this most inexplicable year, and I sit in my office enormously grateful to report a full recovery from Covid-19, I want to celebrate what would traditionally be our favorite event of the summer:

Miner Winery’s Benedetto Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Release Concert

This year, of course, social distancing restrictions and travel constraints make the live event impossible.  But we have a great alternative and a wonderful opportunity:

Miner Winery is offering from their library a one-time only 12 bottle VERTICAL of Benedetto Cabernet Sauvignon. There are only twelve cases available of these 750ML bottles.  2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 for $1500 including priority overnight shipping, and an invite to the new Miner Benedetto Lounge in 2021!  Additionally, the winery will offer a limited number of 2014, 2015 and 2016 750ML bottles from their library at $150 ea.

Additionally, we are working to produce a special ZOOM event for the purchasers of these bottle that will feature some music and reminiscence by Dave Miner and some Benedetto Concert Alumni!
