2 – 3 Liter 2016 Carter Cellars Beckstoffer to Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon “The O.G.”

Two (2) nights’ accommodations in an Executive Corner Suite at Omni Louisville Hotel for two (2) couples

Whiskey tour, tasting and lunch, followed by dinner at Bob’s Steakhouse with proprietors of Carter Cellars and Old Carter Whiskey Company, Sherri & Mark Carter, in Louisville, Kentucky

Private lunch with a tasting of rare wines at Carter Cellars in Calistoga, California for two (2) couples


For Sherri and Mark Carter, life’s journey has been a series of passion projects. The saga began in the early 1980s when Mark opened the Carter House, a small bed and breakfast that morphed into Hotel Carter. Mark began sourcing top Napa Cabernets for his restaurant, and by 1998 had won the coveted Wine Spectator “Grand Award.” From there, he founded Carter Cellars, turning out wines that have earned numerous 100-point scores and which one critic called “swoon-inducing.” Sherri and Mark went on to create the Old Carter Whiskey Company where they devote themselves to making and blending extraordinary single barrel whiskies.

The winning bidder’s party of four will experience the very best in both wine and whiskey. You’ll travel to Louisville, the bourbon capital of the world, for a VIP whiskey tour and tasting, followed by a private dinner with Sherri and Mark. At Carter Cellars in Calistoga, your party will have the opportunity to taste a series of rare bottlings and discover what all the wine critics were raving about.

On top of that, each couple will take home a Three Liter bottle of 2016 Carter Cellars Beckstoffer to Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon “The O.G.,” rated a perfect 100 points by critic Jeb Dunnuck, who called it “a monumental Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that’s going to drink beautifully for 2+ decades.”
