Lloyd Cellars and Prescription Vineyards are excited to join the cast of the fabulous Napa Valley wineries participating in the Second Season of Broadway & Vine, created and produced by Tony Award nominee Jacob Langfelder (Sea Wall/A Life). As Jacob says, “The road to Broadway & Vine is paved with a love for the Performing Arts, Culinary Arts, and Viticulture.”
Each of the four intimate showcases feature a Pre-Concert Wine Tasting Reception, Live Concert in the Vineyard, and Post-Concert 3-Course Vintner’s Dinner.
Prescription Vineyards and Lloyd Cellars invite you to the quintessential California wine tasting experience – sun, sea, food, wine, and music (we’re the stage sponsor!) – all come together at this sun-splashed wine fest at our brand new grassy, palm-lined venue, Sea Terrace Park. By 1:00 pm the event is in full swing at this Camelot-like white-topped tent village next to the sparkling Pacific Ocean. Wine lovers find hundreds of fine wines, regional craft brews, and a dizzying variety of foods to sample including artisanal cheeses, bread, olive oil, chocolates, and more! Upstream, a Caribbean steel band, maintains a happy beat to the day for this all-day feast for the senses.
Guests are invited to sip on Lloyd Cellars and other fine wines while tasting a variety of delicacies surrounded by the ocean at the beautiful Ritz- Carlton, Laguna Niguel. This is an elegant VIP event for true fine wine lovers, located in one of Orange County’s most beautiful coastal cities – Dana Point. The limited number of tickets sell out quickly (due to the rarity of the wines being poured). A champagne reception is just the prelude to an evening of sampling hard-to-find trophy wines to an adoring crowd dressed in their finest casual/elegant resort wear.

Recent The Tasting Panel & The Somm Journal Scores for Our New Releases
Enhanced by notes of chervil, oregano, and chamomile, a luscious lemon meringue eeks out at mid-palate. Crushed stone, white pepper and vibrant minerality – plus that spark of acidity – is just the right Rx for its great food-pairing abilities. 92
>>> Publisher’s Picks
Lloyd Cellars 2020 Chardonnay, Carneros ($40)
Creamy notes of toasted vanilla, with a surge of cookie dough, ripe melon, kiwi, and peanut brittle. The wine caresses with a sumptuous touch. 94
>>> Down the Aisle
Prescription Cellars 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley, Sonoma County ($30)
Grainy tannins fulfill a mission to coat the teeth with blueberry compote. The gushing, dynamo of a wine features plump plums, powdered cocoa, and blooming lavender. This Prescription is really an over-the-counter cure for disbelievers of Alexander Valley’s side effect of textural lushness. Winemaker Rob Lloyd over-delivers on some amazing medicine for the soul. 93
>>> Publisher’s Picks Section
Lloyd Cellars by Robert Lloyd 2019 Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County ($50)
Its carmine hue is deep and inviting, and scents of heather and a woodsy forest are sensual. Full and generous with a lather of huckleberry and dark chocolate coffee bean. Layers of tilled soil and dried flowers keep it exciting and complex. The brown-sugared cinnamon finish goes deep on the finish. 94
