Wine Tastings

Taste and learn more about classic and lesser-known wines at our weekly winter Wine Tastings. A perfect winter evening begins with an in-depth discussion led by our sommelier or wine manager, followed by the opportunity to taste four different wines with accompanying paired snacks themed to the evening in a small group setting limited to 20 people in either our wine cellar or chef’s table.
