Mandolin Raleigh

I can't think of a better match.  Trent Moffett's wines and Fall seasonal foods at Mandolin Retaurant!  We were thrilled when Trent said he was coming for a visit. He's one of the most genuine, friendly, and talented winemakers that we know.  

Moffett Vineyards traces its legacy to the Livingston Moffett Winery, which was founded in 1976 in the heart of the Napa Valley by Trent Moffetts’ parents, Diane and John. For 22 years Trent helped grow the family winery from the cellars to the marketplace. Upon their retirement and sale of the winery in 2005, a generational transition was made by Trent into his successor Moffett Vineyards.

For 9 years his estate winery was located and functioned atop Howell Mountain above the Napa Valley. It was here that Trent started his love affair with the Pinot Noir grape.  In 2014, Trent and his wife Colleen and their three children relocated to Willamette Valley in Oregon.  It is here that Trent crafts some amazing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, while still keeps his connection with his family's Napa Cabernet.

Chef Sean Fowler at Mandolin will be delighting your senses with a beautifully paired menu.  If you have any food allergies, please do not call the restaurant directly.  List them in the Notes section when purchasing your ticket.  We will let you know if the Chef is able to accommodate.
