We’re pleased to announce that Cakebread Cellars from Napa Valley, CA will be joining us at Montana Master Grillers 2015. With 40 harvests under their belts, and the second generation of winemaking Cakebreads now running the winery, their little family winery has become one of the most successful and respected wineries in America, renowned for its world-class vineyards, wines, and hospitality. It is their commitment to quality, and our history, that they feel truly blessed to share with you.
A very small party (hint: sign up now) will join Dennis Cakebread on an intimate fly fishing trip on the legendary Missouri River. Enjoy epic scenery, swap stories, hook some fresh trout, and eddy out around mid-day to enjoy an alfresco lunch paired with Cakebread Cellars wines. Followed by more fishing for dessert.
Rodney Strong Vineyards
Wine Magazine’s 2013 Winery of the Year, Rodney Strong, is a family-owned winery in Sonoma, and the 20th largest wine company in the U.S. They’re known throughout the world for their unique estate-bottled and single-vineyard wines. They’re also referred to as “Northern California’s largest boutique winery” because of their excellent grapes and Artisan Cellar, a high-end production facility designed to process small quantities of special grapes, picked from ‘sweet spots’ in their vineyards. They don’t take shortcuts. They use the finest equipment. They age their wines in traditional oak barrels and bottle on site. And they became carbon neutral in 2009.
We’re honored to welcome Rodney Strong, and their bold, full-bodied reds, which are sure to pair perfectly with the gourmet grilled cuisine from this year’s Master Grillers.
Shed Horn Cellars
The Resort at Paws Up is pleased to welcome boutique vintner Shed Horn Cellars to Montana Master Grillers 2015.
Shed Horn is a family owned and operated small-lot producer of premium wines from Middletown, Lake County, CA. Situated in the heart of wine country, 90 miles north of San Francisco, Shed Horn takes advantage of wild, volcanic soils and high-elevation vineyards to create award-winning wines with intense fruit and oak tannins.
Shed Horn was founded by Michael Wood, a North Bay native who has been working in Wine Country vineyards since 1982. In 2004, Wood took his experience (and his passion for the outdoors) and set out to create his own label, inspired by the powerful Elk.
Shed Horn produces five varietals and only enters a few prestigious competitions every year, but they consistently bring home gold. This year we’re particularly looking forward to pairing their double-gold winning Lake County Non-Typical red wine blend (Syrah, Zinfandel, Merlot, Barbery, Petit Sirah, Malbec, and Petit Verdot) and Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon with the barbequed bounty cooked up by the Master Grillers.
