Join us on Monday, February 23 for a special wine dinner featuring some incredible wines from California's Santa Barbara county.
Unlike any other winegrowing region in the world, Santa Barbara county has the unique ability to grow both cool climate chardonnay and pinot noir as well as warm climate cabernet sauvignon and sauvignon blanc. Join us in the discovery and celebration of the producers who blurred boundaries, pressed the limits and forever changed the California winescape.
Chef Tom Gray will prepare a seasonal, family-style menu thoughtfully paired with the evening's wines, served at communal tables in true vineyard fashion. We are pleased to welcome Jonathan Ramsey from Premier Beverage, who will share his knowledge of this unique region and the wineries represented throughout the evening.
