On Wednesday, February 17th, Alta's Shallow Shaft restaurant will host a special wine dinner called "Sea Level to High Altitude" featuring the single vineyard wines of Poseidon Vineyard and Obsidian Ridge. Winemaker and co-founder Arpad Molnar will be the special guest for the evening.
Partners Arpad Molnar, Peter Molnar and Michael Terrien say of Poseidon Vineyard and Obsidian Ridge: "We are farmers, coopers, winemakers- intimately involved in the creation of our single vineyard wines form Napa, Carneros and the high Mayacamas Mountains. We own and farm our vineyards: Poseidon Vineyard at sea level and Obsidian Ridge at elevation 2,640'. We cooper our own barrels with oak selected from the forest of Tikaj, Hungary. We craft our wines in small lots, which is critical to our winemaking philosophy."

Scallop Bouride with Red Bell Pepper Rouille, Crostini + Poseidon Vineyard Estate Chardonnay 2014
Smoked Duck Spring Roll with Shitake Mushroom, Scallion, Duck Cracklings, Cherry Ponzu + Poseidon Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir 2013
