Flambeaux Wine, Virtual Wine Tasting Series Continues with Special Guests
(Sonoma County – CALIF.) – Flambeaux Wine, located in Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley near Healdsburg, California, will again go live on Instagram @FlambeauxWine this week featuring special guest Executive Chef Jesse Mallgren of Healdsburg’s Madrona Manor.
On Thursday, May 28 at 5:00 p.m. PDT/8:00 p.m. EDT, Flambeaux Wine will chat about and taste their wines on Instagram Live, while Chef Jesse Mallgren prepares a dish that would otherwise only be created in the kitchen at Madrona Manor where he has created inspired cuisine since 1999.
Raised in Sonoma County, Chef Mallgren bases his cuisine on a classic French foundation of sauces and stock punctuated by global influences. He is equally inspired by the organic Madrona Manor estate garden, and uses seasonal ingredients primarily from Sonoma County and California.
Founded by the Murray family, originally from New Orleans, Flambeaux makes hand-crafted, limited-production wines that capture the essence of the Flambeaux Dry Creek Valley Estate Vineyard, as well as other world-class Sonoma County vineyards. The Flambeaux are the dancing torchbearers of New Orleans Carnival during Mardi Gras, representing tradition, light, dance and joy.
Art and Nicole Murray, co-founded Flambeaux in Healdsburg, California along with his parents Steve and Pattie Murray, and daughters Alys, Elizabeth, Nia and Lila Murray. At Flambeaux, Winemaker Ryan Prichard (who makes wine at Three Sticks, and has also worked at Williams Selyem, Copain Custom Crush and Medlock Ames) employs the Murray family’s philosophy of allowing the grapes to evolve and naturally grow into what they become. With this minimalist approach, the fruit ends up as the best of itself and results in intriguing and exciting wines. Flambeaux currently produces a Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel, Sonoma Coast Chardonnay and Sonoma County Rosé.
