About Albert Bichot Vineyards
The renowned house Albert Bichot reflects six generations of experience, with four owned domains in the four core areas of Burgundy, spanning 100 hectares of land, bordering the Grand Cru regions.
Beaune + Bichot = Burgundy. This equation summarises what the Southern wine metropolis of the Côte d’Or has in common with one of the enterprises with the longest tradition: Burgundy. Since 1831, when Bernard Bichot founded the business in the small town of Monthélie, south of Beaune, five generations have given their all to expand its Burgundy competence. Christophe Bichot, who has managed the company’s export business since 2001, represents the sixth generation.

About Cakebread Cellars
Since its founding in 1973 by Jack and Dolores, Cakebread Cellars has been famous for its warm, gracious hospitality and unmatched wines. With 40 harvests under its belt and the second generation of the Cakebread family now running the winery, Cakebread Cellars has become one of the most successful and respected wineries in America.
After working alongside his father since the winery was founded in 1973, Bruce Cakebread assumed the winemaking position in 1979, overseeing all vineyard operations and winemaking duties until 2002 when he became president and COO.
Discussing the Cakebread family’s philosophy of winemaking over the past four decades, Bruce says, “We are very fortunate to have an excellent collection of vineyards and have worked alongside some of the best growers in Napa Valley for many years to produce consistently high quality wines. These great vineyards, plus the fact that we have had only three winemakers over these forty years, allows us to produce consistency in quality and our balanced style of elegant and complex wines...”.
