Top of the Hub Hosts Cakebread Cellars Wine Dinner
Four Course Pairing Menu on Thursday, May 24
Top of the Hub will present a four-course Cakebread Cellars Wine Dinner on Thursday, May 24, at 6 p. m. Priced at $125 per person (tax and gratuity included), the prix-fixe evening will showcase a menu created by Executive Chef Mark Porcaro and complemented by a selection of fine wines from Cakebread's Napa Valley vineyards. Offering sweeping views of the city from its location on the 52nd floor of The Prudential Tower, Top of the Hub is presenting the event in partnership with Horizon Beverages. Advance reservations are available by calling 6 1 7 - 5 3 6 - 1 7 7 5.
Vineyard owner Dennis Cakebread will join Bill Callahan, Director of Wines & Craft Spirits at Horizon Beverages, to offer insight on the selection of wines being served and why each was chosen to be paired with its respective dish.
Located in Rutherford, California, Cakebread Cellars is among the most creative and successful family-owned wineries in Napa Valley. Since its founding in 1973, the winery has developed a reputation for producing world-class wines. Its success is built on quality, consistency and continuity, characteristics which apply equally to the grapes, the wines, the people and the operation of the winery.

Four decades ago, Jack Cakebread set out to photograph the Napa Valley for a book project. While there, he casually mentioned his interest in one day owning a vineyard to family friends who owned a ranch in Rutherford. When he returned home, the phone rang and those same family friends were offering to sell him their property. He headed back up to the valley that same afternoon to make his best offer, and Cakebread Cellars was born.
With vineyard properties located throughout Napa Valley and Anderson Valley, the winery today owns 13 sites totaling 982 acres, 460 of which are currently planted. This judicious acquisition and development of vineyard land enables them to more completely control the quality of the fruit they grow and the wines they create.
