Katz and Katz. A world class pairing: Andy brought Jesse to the the most famous vineyards on earth, from the heart of Burgundy to the hills of Tuscany. He may not have admitted it at the time, but Andy’s gambit worked. Barely a decade later, Jesse is now one of the most exciting — and accomplished — winemakers in the world, recently gracing the cover of Wine Enthusiast as a rising young star who is doing nothing less than “changing the way the world drinks.” The son of a man who, though his photographs, changes the way the world sees wine. It’s a perfect combination. Jesse supplies the grapes, Andy supplies the images. And together they make wines worthy of their travels.

One of Napa Valley’s rising stars, winemaker Jess Katz worked in the cellars of Screaming Eagle and others before he ventured out on his own. Only 9 barrels of this produced and is highly praised in the industry as one of the best, new Cabernet Sauvignon producers. Katz was recently named as Forbes 30 under 30.

Food pairing

Red meats, French-style steaks, Manchego, roasted red peppers, caramelized onion, and roasted squash.
