Please join us for an evening of fantastic wines from Penfolds, including "Baby Grange", Bin 389!

Please join Chef Erin Sealy at her Normal Heights pop-up location, Proprietor's Reserve Wine Bar, for an evening featuring wines from Australia's famed Penfolds Winery! Mike Malcolm will be joining us from the winery to pour these award-winning wines. Mike will also be discussing the rich, wine-pioneering history of Penfolds. We'll be pouring some great selections including a rarely seen Mourvedre and Bin 389, known as the "Baby Grange". This is the "little sister" wine of the ultra-high-end, Bin 95 Grange Blend. Chef Erin will be crafting a menu specific to each wine. Expect a wonderful evening of wine, food and insights from Mike and Erin. Seating for this event is extremely limited, please register asap, using the link below!

Each selection will be paired with its own wine inspired dinner course, prepared by Chef Erin Sealy. Chef Erin specializes in pairing food with wine, with a slightly different approach than most. Prior to creating a menu, each wine is tasted and reviewed and then she creates a food pairing, highlighting the nuances of each wine. This concept creates a dinner and pairing experience with layers of complexity and unique creations which exemplify the enjoyment of each wine. With a passion for food and wine, Chef Erin delights attendees with a detailed account of the pairing concept and cooking techniques that create each course. Expect a fabulous evening of wine, food & educational insights! Please see below for additional dinner details and a registration link
