Checkmate Winery Dinner

Checkmate Winery Long Table Dinner

Date: Thursday – November 23, 2017

Where: Oak Bay Beach Hotel

Winery: Checkmate Winery

Winemaker:Australian-born lawyer turned intellectual winemaker, Philip McGahan, left Williams Selyem in the Russian River Valley, Sonoma, to take up the challenge at CheckMate Artisanal Winery. Philip set out to make sophisticated wines by meticulously studying and researching rows within family-owned & farmed estate vineyards to define micro-blocks. At CheckMate, everything is tended to by hand: all the canopy management, leaf-pulling and cluster-thinning is done manually to ensure precision and gentleness. These sites, natural yeasts and Phil’s artisanal winemaking resulted in a collection of remarkable Chardonnays and outstanding Merlots.
