Jackson Family Wines paired with small plates that will inspire your palate.

Please join us for an evening of distinctive wines from the Jackson Family collection, thoughtfully paired with small plates from Citilites’ Executive Chef, Matt DeAngulo. Tara Grimes, Certified Specialist of Wine, will guide us through five wines, all from family-owned vineyards in California as we present you with plates to inspire your palate.

Jackson Family Wines believe their mission — to make the world’s best wines, from the best vineyards, crafted by hand with integrity — is strengthened by their sustainability goals. As a family company, it is vital to demonstrate accountability and authenticity behind their claims that they are not only a responsible business, but a leader in sustainable winemaking. Their multi-generational approach to winegrowing allows us to craft wines according to our values, and to make responsible decisions for the health of our lands and communities. Inspired by the long-held tenet that great wines can only come from great vineyards, they’ve searched the globe for the best vineyard sites able to produce distinctive wines. Each winery within the Jackson Family Wines portfolio (currently 57) operates independently, characterized by a winegrowing philosophy rooted in good land stewardship and artisan winemaking. Each winery is led by their commitment to source fruit primarily from family-owned vineyards to ensure greater control over each stage of winegrowing, which allows them to make superior quality wines.

Wine will be available for retail purchase at the end of the night.
