REPEAT APPEARANCE BY "BEST SUPPORTING BEVERAGE"
NAPA, Calif., Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- This Sunday, on the brightest night in Hollywood, as the stars stroll the red carpet, find their seats in the Dolby Theater, and accept their awards - the odds are good that they will be toasting a win with a glass of Sterling Vineyards wines. The landmark Napa winery, Sterling Vineyards was once again selected to participate by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, as the Exclusive Wine of The Oscars®.
Winemaker Alison Crary is thrilled at this "best supporting beverage" opportunity. "It's amazing to have our wines poured at the most glamorous event in the world!" Crary added "I see similarities between winemaking and moviemaking. Napa is a great story and my job, like any director's, is to create a 'Best Picture' with every vintage. The winemaker is the story teller…the vineyard is the script, with a cast of varietals and the potential to tell a different version of the story with each vintage. A bold, powerful and unforgettable wine reminds me of a 'Best Actor or Actress'," continued Crary. "While a wine that is consistently good, versatile with food and you can always rely on is like a 'Best Supporting Actress or Actor."
Winemakers Harry Hansen and Alison Crary dug into the winery's cellar reserves for exceptional vintages and agreed to pour the 2007 Sterling Reserve Cabernet, the 2009 Sterling Reserve Chardonnay and three limited production dessert wines. The wines will be paired with an extraordinary menu created by Master Chef Wolfgang Puck, for the Governors Ball, the Official Celebration of The Oscars®. Both wines will complement the 50+ selections of hors d'oeuvres, small plate entrees and desserts that Chef Puck has created for this celebration.
Founded in 1964, Sterling Vineyards crowns a 400-foot knoll, one mile south of the historic Napa town of Calistoga. The winery is accessible by aerial tram and offers stunning views of the surrounding wine country. For more information on Sterling Vineyards, visit www.sterlingvineyards.com
