Please join us on Friday, June 28th at 7pm in collaboration with the Festival of Forgotten Grapes, as we welcome Greg La Follette and Wes Hagen for a very special wine dinner we are calling "The Davids vs The Goliaths".

Enjoy a six-course, individually plated dinner featuring the Davids and the Goliaths of the wine industry (grape-wise), hosted by two industry icons.

This event is part of the first annual Festival of Forgotten Grapes, taking place Saturday, June 29th (www.festivalofforgottengrapes.com)

Who Are The Goliaths:

In California, 93% of the wine grapes planted consist of nine grapes. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Sirah, and Zinfandel. These are grapes we all know, and we love.

Who Are The Davids:

There are more than 100 grape varieties that make up the remaining 7% of plantings in California. These are not necessarily “unknown” grapes but rather “forgotten grapes” due to the limited availability.

Side note regarding single tickets: If you buy one ticket with the intention of sitting with someone else, please notate who you will be sitting with in your reservation.

All of the information is below along with the menu.

Just a reminder that we can always accommodate allergies and dietary restrictions!

(Ingredients on published menu are subject to change based on availability)

We hope to see you there!
