2/25 CHEF ALEX LOVICK, INGLENOOK, FLAVOR! NAPA VALLEY, PHIL KEOGHAN, THE AMAZING RACE

ALEX LOVICK, WINERY CHEF FOR INGLENOOK - INGLENOOK WILL BE HOSTING “THE YOUNG GUNS POP-UP DINNER”  FOR FLAVOR! NAPA VALLEY 

The Inglenook legacy began in 1879 when Gustave Niebaum, a Finnish sea captain, wine connoisseur and entrepreneur, came to Rutherford to build a wine estate that would rival Europe’s finest. When Niebaum’s grandnephew, John Daniel, Jr. inherited the chateau and vineyards in the 1930s, Inglenook had already earned international acclaim.  Francis and Eleanor Coppola purchased the property in 1975 and have spent forty years reuniting the original vineyards, returning winemaking operations to the chateau, and restoring Inglenook’s illustrious heritage with the help of renowned wine consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt and Managing Director and Winemaker Philippe Bascaules. In honor of this estate and its historical significance, we have restored the name, Inglenook.

ABOUT ALEX LOVICK:
A native Northern Californian, Alex began his career by apprenticing with Chef Walter Manzke in Carmel. He refined his culinary skills at The Little Nell in Aspen, regarded as Colorado’s premier luxury resort, working with Chef Ryan Hardy. Alex has traveled extensively in Russia and Western Europe, which has served to inspire his menus. Since venturing to the Napa Valley, Alex has worked as a private chef for numerous clients, including the Nickel Family on their yacht, Far Niente. He has also worked at various wineries such as Kuleto Estate, Robert Mondavi Winery, and Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. As Winery Chef for Inglenook, Alex not only oversees all culinary aspects of the Estate, but also wine and food education, the Chef’s Garden and Foraging program. Focusing on local sustainable ingredients, Alex allows the seasons to dictate his menus, cultivating the bounty of the expansive Inglenook Estate

Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman, Elise Doganieri and Mark Vertullo are the executive producers for Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc. in association with ABC Studios and Amazing Race Productions.  THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.
