Helen Keplinger is one of California’s true winemaking masters! In 2012, she was named Napa Valley & The Sierra Foothills, California Winemaker of the Year by prestigious Food & Wine magazine. She has worked with wine legends such as consultant Michel Rolland, viticulturist David Abreu, and winemaker Heidi Peterson Barrett, and she was the winemaker for Bryant Family Vineyards before focusing on her own label. We are honored and excited to feature Helen’s talent, showcasing her ability to masterfully craft different Rhône grape varieties.

Helen Keplinger’s incredible wines will be paired with a farm-to-table menu created by d.k Steak House Executive Chef Albert Balbas.
