Frasca Food and Wine 1738 Pearl Street Boulder, CO 80302 Join Ridge’s David Gates at Frasca Food and Wine in Boulder, CO. After achieving notable initial success with the Cabernet Sauvignon based Montebello Vineyard they began sourcing and blending Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Mataro from Sonoma County, Amador County, and Paso Robles;the wines that eventually became the iconic Lytton Springs, Geyserville, and Dusi Ranch. The hiring of the brilliant winemaker Paul Draper in 1969 allowed them to get even better, and in the famed 1976 Judgement Of Paris tasting, their 1971 Montebello, placed 5th. Interestingly, at the 30th anniversary re-tasting of the same wines by the same people in 2006, the 1971 Montebello placed first. $45 Four-Course Menu Wine Pairings optional and additional Call 303.442.6966 for reservations
