Vintners Dinners

The Vintner’s Dinners offer attendees the opportunity to taste amazing, carefully-selected wines paired with meticulously crafted culinary treats. Each course offers unique insight about the wines from the Vintner's representative and usually an opportunity to ask the chef questions.

Each year we highlight new and different vintages, and every dinner is second to none.
