Hautvillers Abbey: Birthplace of Champagne


Inspiration, creation and sharing have always been the driving forces in the destiny of the Abbey of Saint Pierre d'Hautvillers. Over the centuries, this exceptional building has witnessed the passing of both the powerful and the humble; it has lived on its own local scale all the vicissitudes of the History of France.

This is the place where Dom Pierre Pérignon dedicated 47 years of his life to invent and perfect the techniques to create a wine whose reputation knows no equal. Perched on a rolling hill overlooking the Marne Valley in the heart of the Champagne region, the Benedictine abbey is the place where he pursued his mission to create "the best wine in the world."

Today, the heritage that Dom Pérignon receives never prevents the expression of its creation. Richard Geoffroy, Chef de Cave, finds here the inspiration to create the Dom Pérignon Vintages.

Mankas Steakhouse - Farm to Table Cuisine


Executive Chef Peter Halikas offers creative appetizers, and a full American Steakhouse menu with a local California twist. All of their ingredients are sourced locally and organically whenever possible.

He has worked in some of San Francisco and Napa’s greatest culinary icons such as Gary Dankos, Dean & Deluca’s, The Brix in Yountville and NV in Downtown Napa. His style of cooking is really a philosophy; garden to table cooking – focusing on fresh and slow food.

Chef Peter has taken his Eastern European roots, combined with the wine country traditions of his home town, Napa, and has fused them together to explode off of the Mankas Steakhouse Menu. Chef Peter is all about locally grown produce and flavor infusions of the Suisun Valley, mixed with a true Californian carnivore’s deepest desires.

Guests are treated to a true wine country dining experience in the middle of Suisun Valley.

“Opened in 2012, the Valley’s only upscale restaurant boasts white tablecloths and plenty of Suisun Valley wines. Get the “Whole Board,” a $25 charcuterie-and-cheese platter featuring, among other selections, an earthy goat’s milk cheese from Redwood Hill Farm in Sonoma County and La Quercia speck.”

Emmolo Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc


Inspired by the idea that less is more, this wine is more minerality-driven than fruit-driven. Not grassy or overly ripe, it features delicate fruit flavors and steely, mineral notes that call to mind a first summer rain. Our grapes come from two family vineyards, and we harvest the fruit at just the right moment to achieve a balance of firm acidity and low alcohol.
