  • During this event, we try to unravel some of the mysteries that seemingly surround a successful wine and food pairing, hopefully helping you understand why some wines pair better with certain foods than others. The winemaking staff is available for a rare, personalized Q&A session.
  • Our winemaker will select six new, unreleased wines to feature at this event. We serve each wine with a food sample that pairs well with the wine. Participants will receive information that explains why the food was chosen as a good pairing match, and as you taste the food and sample the wine, you will begin to understand the basis for good pairings.
  • The wines that you will be tasting are not yet available to the public and have been recently bottled.
  • As we have done in the past with Pre-Release, seating will be by reservation only. Make a reservation online starting February 15th.  Website:
