Overview
Address:

For Terlato Wine Group Chairman Anthony J. Terlato, one of life's richest luxuries is orchestrating a well-prepared meal for his close friends; cooking together, laughing and talking about things they enjoy in common, and, of course, choosing a wine that will get their attention.

This ideal was Terlato's inspiration for Episode, a wine that would stand alongside the best he had tasted during his 50 years in the luxury wine business; a wine that he would proudly serve at a luxurious dinner.

The result is EPISODE, a personal expression of a luxury wine.  The Terlato family personally selects 1 1/2 acres from their 600+ acre holdings in Napa Valley and produces 400 cases of a wine with power, finesse, elegance and longevity.  

EPISODE is a blend of the classic Bordeaux grapes, grown from the very best Napa Valley fruit including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot.  Anthony Terlato and Doug Fletcher, who oversees all aspects of winemaking at the Terlato properties, taste numerous blends selecting the precise combination for each vintage.  

EPISODE meets the very highest standards of the family providing oenophiles and collectors with a wine to be treasured.
