Both Sonoma-Loeb Winery and Chef David Burke have strong ties to the Westchester community. Sonoma-Loeb Winery was founded by Westchester’s John Loeb more than 25 years ago. The Loeb family’s roots in the area date back to the 1920s, where five generations of the family were raised on Anderson Hill Road in Purchase, a homestead that served as a working farm during World War II. Chef David Burke, one of the best-known and most respected chefs in modern American cuisine, began his legendary career at a restaurant in Bedford in the 1980s.
Sonoma-Loeb Winery to Debut New Wine Collection at Red Horse by David Burke
This fall, Sonoma-Loeb Winery is introducing a new line of wines, the Dignitary collection, which will make their debut at Red Horse by David Burke in White Plains, a deliberate choice by John Loeb’s son, Nick Loeb, who spearheaded the development of the Sonoma-Loeb Dignitary label.
“When work began on the Dignitary line, I knew I wanted to launch this new collection in Westchester, where our family’s story started,” said Nick Loeb. “Introducing the Dignitary wines in partnership with David Burke at his new Red Horse restaurant, just minutes from our family’s property in Purchase, is bringing our family’s venture full circle.”
The new Sonoma-Loeb Dignitary wines reflect the winery’s decades-long dedication to crafting wines of exceptional elegance and harmony. Sonoma-Loeb’s renowned winemaker, Phillip Titus, created the Dignitary line, which builds on the winery’s tradition of crafting wines of superior quality.
Chef Burke opened Red Horse by David Burke in White Plains in March of 2023, the restaurant’s second location. Red Horse by David Burke is a modern steakhouse and sushi bar at the Opus Westchester on Main Street. Red Horse by David Burke features several of the chef’s specialties, including his signature Himalayan salt-aged steaks and “clothesline” bacon.
“We are excited to partner with Sonoma-Loeb Winery to introduce the Dignitary, their newest line of exceptional wines,” said Jonathan Kohlman, General Manager of Red Horse by David Burke. “The Dignitary Cabernet pairs amazingly well with Chef Burke’s salt-aged steaks, and the Chardonnay beautifully complements both the lobster and the branzino. From a culinary standpoint, this partnership with Sonoma-Loeb Winery is a perfect match.”
“I am excited to return home to Westchester to live and work,” said Nick Loeb. “Our new Dignitary wines are an outstanding addition to the Sonoma-Loeb brand and a wonderful complement to the extraordinary menu offerings at the new Red Horse by David Burke in White Plains.”
