Swanson Vineyards – Summer Winemaker's Dinner

June 11 2009 - 2:56 PM

Here’s another great example of a fun, educational and tasty evening. For $95 a person, it sounds expensive but when you realize you get 4 courses, pairing with each course, and pre-dinner drinks and it includes tax and tip, it’s actually a steal.

Next Wednesday at 6pm join Napa’s Swanson Vineyards winemaker , Chris Phelps and Chef James Wescoe at Ember in the Westin for what sounds like a great event. The food sounds lovely, from the pike to buffalo and boar and the white truffle-honey on the ice cream. The pairings sound great as well beginning with the Oakville Napa Rosato before dinner bouncy castle for sale and finishing with a wonderful sweet dessert late-harvest Semillon.

There are a few seats left but I’d jump on this if you’re interested – it’s a great value.
