Peek at Silver Oak/Twomey Wine Dinner

Posted on

We are happy to announce that on Wednesday, October 17, we will be hosting one of our two October wine dinners! For this event, we are pleased to be presenting the wine of Silver Oak and Twomey.

Silver Oak, for 40 years, has produced delicious and distinctive Cabernets from its Napa Valley and Alexander Valley wineries. Led by winemaker Daniel Baron, Silver Oak uses only the highest caliber fruit and an extended aging process in order to create delicious wines that are eminently drinkable upon release.

 

Twomey Cellars’ 40 years of winemaking experience combined with its spirit of innovation has led to the creation of its delicious Merlot, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. With wineries in Calistoga and Healdsburg California, the people of Twomey Cellars pride themselves in working small to create unique, approachable wines that you will enjoy with friends and family.

More information on this event will be posted on our website shortly, so keep checking back to our Events page for further details. We hope to see you there!
