An Intimate Lunch with award-winning winemaker, Robert Foley | Highlights and Photos

On Thursday, March 8th, Wynwood Oven and Angels’ Share Wines South hosted a private lunch with Robert “Bob” Foley of Robert Foley Vineyards, who made an exclusive appearance in South Florida.

The event was an intimate opportunity to taste and learn more about Bob’s award-winning wines. Guests included general managers and Sommeliers from prominent South Florida restaurants, food and wine social media influencers, and Emmy Award-winning TV and Radio news journalist, Javier Ceriani. They were delighted by Foley’s jovial nature and personal insights about himself, his wife and business manager Kelly Kehoe, and the making of each wine produced on the summit of Napa Valley’s Howell Mountain, where more than 1,000 barrels are housed in an extensive cave system.

Bob has been named, “Winemaker of the Year” by Food and Wine Magazine and the “God of Cabernet” by Wine Executive Seminars. Wine Spectator’s Jim Laube describes Robert Foley wines as, “Dark, rich and massive with gobs of flavor” and “Virtually Perfect — 99 points” by Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate.”

“It was a pleasure to host Robert Foley at Wynwood Oven,” commented Stefano Campanini, owner of Wynwood Oven. “Our goal is to highlight quality and artistry, while introducing our guests to unique wine and pairing experiences. Bob’s expressive wines characterize our own commitment to both culinary heritage and modernity.”

The Wines: Robert Foley — Hawksbill Rosé; 2013 Pinot Noir; 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon; 2006 Claret; 2014 Griffin; 2013 Merlot; 2013 Claret.

The Menu: 50/50 Parma; Homemade Tagliatelle with Sage in a Sauce of Porcini Mushroom; Wild Boar Stew on Polenta; Soup of Berries.
