In the spirit of this last first class dinner, we are asking that all dinner guests appear in appropriate attire. For men, suits and ties or that dusty tuxedo is appropiate. For ladies, floor length dresses, stockings and high heels if you please along with pearls and diamonds, opera gloves, and embroidered shawls! Don’t have any of this? You are still welcome to join us for this special event in business casual or dress attire. 


 

For years we have wanted to do wine dinners that were special and unique and for anybody who really appreciates fine wine and food. This is it! Each dinner includes at least 4 courses and a minimum of 6 different wines.

What's Special about our Dinners?

  1. They are NOT winery dinners, where all the wine comes from one producer. Each wine has been carefully selected to pair with a specific course.
     
  2. Most are classic regional dinners where you get an opportunity to taste some of the world's most famous wine and food combinations.
     
  3. Menus and wine pairings are designed by Claude Robbins, MWA and President of the International Wine & Spirits Guild, so the wines are brought in especially for the dinner.
     
  4. Each dinner includes a brief talk between courses of how the wines and foods were chosen and a little history behind the pairings.
     
  5. Meet others in the food and wine industry and/or others who share your interest in wine and food.
