Each Friday dinner party (usually held on the 3rd or 4th 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 co-mingle with other guests – the bar will serve cocktails prior to dinner (one round included in the dinner rate). 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 $100-120 per person, excluding tax and gratuity (depending upon price points of wines). Rooms will be discounted by 15% for Winner Dinner attendees.
Each month, we include a wine and/or food expert in addition to Chef Barnes

Feast of the Pilgrims Wine Dinner Party – Friday, November 20, 2020. 6:00 pm. While the Pilgrims did not drink wine, Chef Bruce is pulling together his research from establishing the Mitsitam Cafe at the National Museum of the American Indian to create some authentic dishes that may have been served at the first Thanksgiving. We have just picked the wines – we have selected wines with fascinating harvesting stories for this dinner. Seating may be limited to 35 guests, but we hope to invest in heating panels for the barn, so please RSVP early.
