Rosenthal Estate Wine Tasting & Picnic Lunch

November 8, 2014 @ 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM

- $75

You are invited to a private Estate and Vineyard Tour and Premier Tasting of Rosenthal wines + a gourmet picnic lunch. Enjoy a guided tour through the Rosenthal Vineyards and learn a little about the history of the estate and the origins of Rosenthal wines. Sip Estate Chardonnay at the very place the grapes are picked and glimpse the steep hillside where Block M is grown. At about noon, a gourmet picnic lunch will be served while rare wines, which are no longer available for purchase, along with some Rosenthal favorites will be poured. This is a rare opportunity to explore this gorgeous estate which is not generally open to the public. 

On November 8th, we will be tasting:

  • Surfrider Pinot Blanc 2013
  • Rosenthal Chardonnay 2012
  • Hang Ten Red 2012

About the Rosenthal Estate:

George Rosenthal, the very private Los Angeles businessman who owns Raleigh Studios and Hollywood’s Sunset Marquis hotel, has been growing grapes since 1987 at his hilltop
compound in Malibu. Set above the coastal fog, the estate is one of two commercial producers in Los Angeles County, an area that 100 years and a few hundred strip malls ago held as much promise as Napa.

Visiting Rosenthal’s Mexican-inspired manse in the Malibu hills, sipping the bluish-black Rosenthal Cabernet with its exotic spiciness unmatched by its $40 rivals from Napa and Sonoma, I was  reminded again that fine wine is an integral part of the good life. It’s a hobby for the wealthy, an art for the creative, and a blessing for those who get to drink the product. Rosenthal came to winemaking after working in real estate, entertainment, and aviation, and it quickly became his passion. “It’s the first thing I put my name on in 44 years of business,” he told me.

You probably can’t wrangle an invitation to Rosenthal’s estate but you can drink these wines, preferably with good company over a fine dinner, and feel that you’re living life the way it should be lived. And at $35 to $65 a bottle, that makes them a bargain.” Bloomberg
