Monthly Wine Dinners

Each five or six-course dinner party is usually held on the 3rd or 4th Friday or Saturday of the month.
We feature a wine region of the world, a specific vineyard, or a special topic. 
Top-picked wines will be paired with regional-influenced tasting courses prepared by Chef Barnes.
Each month, we include a wine expert, or a winemaker, in addition to Chef Barnes

As always, the menu will also be local farm-to-table driven. Our Chef tries to accommodate your needs.
Some menu modifications for dietary restrictions may be made upon confirmation of your reservation
The bar will serve cocktails prior to dinner (one round included in the dinner rate).
Arrive at 6:00 pm to co-mingle with other guests. We sit for dinner at 6:30 p.m.

 Rooms will be discounted by 10% for one-night stays and 15% for Winner Dinner Weekend two-night stays.

This evening we honor the tradition of eating seafood on Christmas Eve, which dates from the Roman Catholic tradition of abstaining from eating meat on the eve of a feast day. The tradition comes from Southern Italy, where it is known simply as The Vigil (La Vigilia). This celebration commemorates the wait, the Vigilia di Natale, for the midnight birth of the baby Jesus. It was introduced in the United States by Southern Italian immigrants in New York City's Little Italy in the late 1800s. The number seven may come from the seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church, or the seven hills of Rome, or something else.
