This is going to be an exciting wine tasting. Robin has been working on this for five or six weeks now, including securing the wines and working with Chef Jake on the menu paring. I think – and there is no bias on my part – that this will be an educational as well as, a fun evening. Here is the wine list and the menu for the event. There are probably grape varieties on this list that you have never had. Enjoy!!
