Fall Wine Dinners are upon us and we are kicking them off with a very special dinner featuring Truchard Estate Vineyards! Join us Tuesday, September 21 when Anthony Truchard II from Napa Valley’s Truchard Estate Vineyards hosts our opening Wine Dinner! Truchard Vineyard began in the early 70’s when Anthony’s parents purchased a 20 acre abandoned Prune Orchard in the Carneros region of Napa Valley.
Today, they own 400 acres, farm 270 of them and sell grapes to 20 premier Napa Valley Wineries. Since 1989, they have also been producing their own estate wines – seven of which we will be sampling to Chef Mark’s cuisine. We begin with a 92 point Chardonnay and feature two comparison courses with wines from our cellar, including the “91” rated Cabernet from the 1999 vintage! Please join us for this great evening!
