Hope to see you here at The Carlton for the return of our second Strolling Wine Tasting which will feature vendors pouring over 50 selections accompanied by sumptuous Hors D’Oeuvres. This is a participatory event – you rate the wines and I purchase the top offerings and put them on our list.
Cost is $49 per person for this mini Wine Festival from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Many folks stayed for a light dinner after our inaugural event in September – and all who attended raved and asked that we do it again! April Fools Day is the perfect opportunity to taste so many wines – and get a little foolish! Also, a great night for a downtown sleepover!
We hope to see you tonight for a special Wine Dinner with my oldest son Lee and his company – Vintage Imports – to sample the wonderful selections of the Frank Family Winery! Frank Family Winery was founded by Richard Frank – a hugely successful Paramount and Disney President who was responsible for many of the hit TV shows and movies that you watched in the 80′s and 90′s. He fell in love with life in the Napa Valley. Today, he produces some of the most interesting wines that you are likely to taste while traveling through Napa! Hope to see you here!
