On Wednesday, November 20, The Carlton will feature a Trinchero “BYOB” Winemaker Dinner – tasting all the components of Bordeaux around a great dinner.
This dinner is structured so that our guests get to taste four components of a Bordeaux (Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot, Single Vineyard Cabernet and Single Vineyard Merlot) during the 2nd and 3rd courses of the dinner.
Before the 4th course, each guest will mix their own “Bordeaux” or Meritage using these components and then taste it next to the Trinchero Meritage. It should be great fun and will be the first time an event such as this has ever been held in Pittsburgh! Click here to view the menu.
