Famous Duckhorn Wines With Event 20/20 Catering This Weekend! Friday 4:30-6:30 & Saturday 1-6 PM Co-founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has spent more than 30 years establishing itself as one of North America's premier producers of Bordeaux varietal wines. From its modest inaugural vintage of 800 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon and 800 cases of Merlot in 1978, to its addition of Sauvignon Blanc in 1982, Duckhorn Vineyards has crafted a tradition of quality and excellence that continues today. Since the inaugural vintage of Decoy Napa Valley Red Wine more than 20 years ago, Decoy has taken an important place in the Duckhorn Wine Company family of wines. With a reputation for delivering great quality at a remarkable price, Decoy has established a loyal following for its distinctive style, which emphasizes ready-upon-release wines that are capable of expressing their full charm and complexity in their youth. This weekend we will be tasting the full line of Duckhorn Decoy Wines! On Saturday only, Events 20 20 will be catering with tapas and appetizers made with Duck in their recipe and

ingredients. Here is our line-up for the weekend: Duckhorn Decoy Sauvignon Blanc Duckhorn Decoy Chardonnay Duckhorn Decoy Pinot Noir Duckhorn Decoy Red Blend Duckhorn Decoy Merlot Duckhorn Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon And maybe, just maybe, Duckhorn Three Palms Merlot!
