Wine Festival Dinner – Provenance & Hewitt

Posted on

Please join us on Tuesday, May 4 when Provenance and Hewitt Winemaker Tom Rinaldi joins us for what promises to be an exceptional dinner!  Tom Rinaldi is probably best known for being the founding winemaker at Duckhorn Vineyards, a position that he held for twenty two years beginning in 1978.

With much accomplished and ready for another challenge, Tom welcomed the opportunity to put his stamp on another high end operation joining the Chalone Group to create the wines of Provenance and the Hewitt Vineyard. Tom continues to make award winning Sauvignon Blanc and deep, rich, smooth and expensive Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon! The wines from this dinner will be savored and remembered! Please join us!
