Each Friday dinner party (usually held on the 3rd Friday of the month) will focus on one wine region of the world. Top-picked wines will be paired with five regional-influenced tasting courses prepared by Chef Barnes. As always, the menu will also be local farm-to-table driven. Arrive as early as 5:30 to comingle with other guests with LIVE ORIGINAL MUSIC – the bar will be open for anyone who would like to purchase a cocktail or glass of wine before the dinner. We sit for dinner at 6:30 p.m.
This will be a 5 or 6-course meal with the courses presented in tasting sizes.
Including the wine pairings (but not alcohol purchased prior to dinner), the cost of dinner is $80-100 per person, excluding tax and gratuity (depending upon price points of wines). Rooms will be discounted by 15% for Tour guests on the night of each tour. You’ll receive another 5% room discount on any subsequent Wine Dinner stayover!
Each month, we hope to include a wine and/or food expert in addition to Chef Barnes
