Nestled on the northeast tip of Diamond Mountain, Theorem Vineyards may be new to Festival Napa Valley, but this 60-acre property’s history spans 140 years in the valley. What a treat it is indeed to join owners Jason and Kisha Itkin for an afternoon of food and wine under a shady pergola at the base of Theorem’s old vine vineyard.
Guests will enjoy a locally-minded menu from celebrated Chef Josh Mitchell of Napa Valley Heritage Catering and a bevy of beautiful pours from Theorem’s estate-grown bottlings – all amidst astonishing views of Mount Saint Helena.
Theorem strives to create wines that express the unique character of the site and soils in which they are grown. Owners Kisha and Jason Itkin are partial to wines made from mountain fruit, which led them to the mountain estate vineyards they own in the Diamond Mountain and Moon Mountain District AVAs. The couple's philosophy aligns perfectly with that of their winemaker, Thomas Rivers Brown, who has crafted Theorem wines since the company's founding in 2012. Thomas’ philosophy of letting the site dictate the way a wine is produced has made him one of Napa Valley’s most respected winemakers. His wines have earned the highest acclaim, including more than twenty-five 100-point scores in Wine Advocate.
