Cane & Canoe Hosts Renowned Napa Winery
Montage Kapalua Bay will present Gandona Winemaker Dinner on Wednesday, Feb. 10 at the resort’s signature restaurant, Cane & Canoe.
Manuel Pires, proprietor of Gandona Winery, will feature renowned wines from his esteemed hillside property in Napa Valley. Crafted by one of Napa’s most highly regarded winemakers, Philippe Melka (also named one of the top nine wine consultants in the world by Robert Parker), the wines are crafted to tell the story of the unique microclimate of Pritchard Hill.
Growing up in Portugal, Manuel Pires spent summers on his grandfather’s estate in the famed wine region of Douro. There, he made a promise to one day live life working the land. In 2006, Manuel and his wife, Cristina, purchased an estate on Pritchard Hill and began development of what would become Gandona Estate. Together with Philippe Melka and viticulturist, Jim Barbour, they dedicated themselves to producing world-class wines characterized by their elegance, depth and longevity.
Share an elegant five-course dinner created by Executive Chef David Viviano and his culinary team, specially designed to pair with the wines.
