Domaine Carneros is a winery in the Napa Valley known for its sparkling wines. The winery was founded by the Taittinger family in the late eighties. Taittinger is a famous champagne maker in France.
In the seventies, the patriarch, Claude Taittinger, was anxious to find a another spot to grow Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. He found California’s Napa valley perfect with its cool breezes and consistent yet mild northern California heat. Claude found Carneros to be the perfect micro-climate for growing , and producing world-class California sparkling wine.
Only sparkling wines made in Champagne can be called Champagne, so in Napa they are called sparkling wines.

Justin/Landmark, featuring Isosceles
January 7, 2016
Landmark Vineyards are located at the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains in California. Founded in the seventies, the owners include a great-great-granddaughter of John Deere, inventor of the first steel plow. Damaris Deere Ford then moved the vineyard to its present location in the late eighties.
Landmark Vineyards sources grapes from the finest vineyards in California, including Sonoma, Monterey and Santa Barbara Counties. Grapes are then aged in French oak barrels.
The man in charge of wine making is, Greg Stach. He is well known for his ability to create world class vintages. His “less is more” philosophy means he rarely intervenes in the growing process. Instead he relies on the fruit’s intense flavors and the distinct characteristics of the vineyard that grew them when deciding on his combinations of grapes.

Wright’s at The Biltmore
The restaurant, Wright’s at the Biltmore, gets its name from Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright was a famous architect in the 20’s. His architectural style was called “organic”. He was known to seamlessly mix architecture with nature. This seamless mix will become obvious when you visit the restaurant.
The hotel and restaurant were the architectural design of Albert Chase McArthur. McArthur lived in a home built by Wright and later worked with him. During the development of the property Frank Lloyd Wright consulted on the use of stone and on some of the stained glass windows. Frank Lloyd Wright loved Arizona. He loved the natural colors of the desert and the natural stone.
The floor to ceiling windows of the restaurant make it feel like the inside and the outside are merged. Creative use of stone brings the outside in. Dining areas are defined by glass panels and decorative metal. Seating is made up of soft leather benches. Pendant chandeliers provide soft light from the many sized globes.
The Wright Bar is appointed with patio fire pits and views of majestic Piestewa Peak.
The Arizona Biltmore
The Arizona Biltmore opened in 1929. Designed in collaboration with Frank Lloyd Wright, it was immediately recognized as a “Jewel of the Desert.” A playground for the rich and famous. Now available to you, too.
The hotel is nestled at the foot of the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, near 24th Street and Camelback Road. The Arizona Biltmore is a Waldorf Astoria Resort®.
Arizona Biltmore is luxurious and recognized worldwide for its unique architecture. Gold leaf, natural stone and beautiful stained glass makes this a tourist destination to not be missed. Visit the spa and enjoy natural healing treatments, enjoy a a 92-foot-long water slide, a swim-up bar or perhaps a round of golf is in order.
Nearby you will find the Wrigley mansion. Wrigley took control of the property in the 30’s. He is the Wrigley of chewing gum fame. Visit the mansion for a taste of Arizona history.
