The beginning of OPUS One wine can be traced to 1970 at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel in Hawaii. Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Rebert Mondavi met for the very first time and began their collaboration to merge old world and new world wine styles into one grand opus.Plans for the winery had been evolving between the two since the early 1970’s and the collaboration between Mondavi and Rothschild was announced in 1980.

Did you know that Baron Rothschild came up with the name Opus for the venture? Just two days later he added the second word, “One” and the new joint venture had a name – OPUS One. The term opus is defined as “a musical expression denoting the first masterwork of the composer”.

Did you know that the vines of OPUS One are planted five times denser than what is customary in the Napa Valley? When planted at higher densities, the vines produce smallerberries.  The smaller the berry, the higher the skin to juice ratio. This planting technique leads to more intense aromas and flavors.

Opus receives a full 18 days of the fermentation process and then placed in new French oak barrels for 18 months.  The wine is then bottled a year and a half before it is released.  The wine, with classic flavors like cassis, blackberry, and black cherry, is released over three years from harvest.

If you enjoy fine wine and would like to learn a bit more about the ever-changing wine, OPUS One Napa doesn’t fit into your schedule and Delray Beach is more feasible, learn more about OPUS One this weekend.  Saturday, August 20, 2016 beginning at 6:00pm, the brand new 2013 OPUS One will be unveiled for a special pre-release tasting party.  Taste through the flight by making a pre-paid reservation at The Wine Wave, 900 East Atlantic Avenue, Suite #3, Delray Beach, FL 33483.  For more information, please call (561) 276-2076 or concierge@thewinewave.com.  Cost is $150 per person.
