For food lovers and wine connoisseurs alike, Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch is proud to present Whitehall Lane Winery for our October Winemaker Dinner.
Reception to begin at 6:30 p.m. with a 4-course dinner to follow starting at 7:00 p.m.
With just three head winemakers in our 39-year history, we’ve achieved consistency of style — distinctive, fruit-driven wines — while continually refining and improving our winemaking practices. Richie Allen, our Director of Viticulture and Winemaking, embraces traditional and cutting-edge practices in the vineyard and cellar to make certain each wine gets the customized attention it needs.
This marriage of old and new begins with optical sorters, ensuring only the best fruit makes it into our wines. All lots are separated, no matter how small, allowing Richie to determine the best fermentation and aging option for each. For reserve red wines, barrel fermentation is used to produce a more textured palate and silky tannins, and up to 25 types of French oak barrels are used for fermentation and/or aging. For all wines, a basket press and peristaltic pumps — larger versions of those used to move blood during surgery — provide for gentle handling every step of the way. Our caves provide ideal conditions for aging red wines.
Space is limited. Reservations required. Please call 480-629-6231 to reserve your spot.
