From the rolling, Napa-esque hills of Chile's Casablanca region to the European style wines of Argentina, this boutique wine dinner is going to wow your taste buds. We're creating unique dishes to pair with four wines from South America, featuring small production, family owned selections from Argentina and Chile. Wine columnist and educator Taylor Eason is our featured guest, and will tell you all about the wines. The cost is $95 per person and includes the 6-course menu and wine pairings , gratuity and sales tax.
