“Foley is one of the more interesting winemakers in Napa Valley.”
—Robert Parker, Jr.
Wine Advocate

He has been called an “ultra-cult” winemaker by The World of Fine Wine, one of the most prestigious wine magazines published today.

He has been named “winemaker of the year” by Food & Wine magazine.

Wine Advocate founder Robert Parker, Jr. is a huge fan and likes the wines so much that he reviews them himself, regularly giving them 90+ scores.

The wines are so coveted among Napa Valley collectors, the wait to get on his mailing list for top bottlings can take years.

And he’s making a special trip to Houston on January 13 to lead a guided tasting and dinner in his honor at Vallone’s.

“Foley’s favorite terroirs combine mountainous, well-drained soils and the exposure of high elevations,” wrote veteran wine writer Ben Weinberg for The World of Fine Wine. “These factors concentrate a grape’s aromas, flavors, color, and density. The goal is to make the most expressive wines imaginable using traditional techniques and hands-on care. He works extensively with [select grape clones] because they express the density of the local volcanic soils as a plethora of black fruit, and he ruthlessly green-harvests to concentrate those flavors.”

One of the wines to be poured at the January 13 dinner will be the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, a vintage to which Parker has awarded 96 points.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to meet and taste with Robert, one of the most dynamic winemakers working today.
