Advanced Wine Education: The New California
Sunday, November 16th
2:00 - 4:00 pm
 
Let’s face it.  We all want to seek out what’s the next best thing in California and it’s all about thinking outside of the Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon box.  It's almost hard to find a grape or area California winemakers haven't explored. 
 
We'll explore the “new” California wines with Wine Director Brooke Sabel while tasting through 6 wines from off-the-wall grape varieties to off-the-beaten-path vineyards.  Know what’s cool before your friends do.
 
 
 
Kentucky Bourbon Tasting Dinner
Wednesday, November 19th
6:30 - 10:00 pm
 
In 1964, Congress officially recognized Bourbon’s place in our history by declaring it a distinctive product of the United States. Kentucky has been the frontier location for distilling bourbon through out history. Today, various styles, approaches, ingredients and theories govern the remaining distilleries which dot the Kentucky countryside, yielding different flavors of bourbons.
 
Join us for our Kentucky Bourbon Tasting Dinner! Chef David C. Felton will prepare a four-course menu paired to tastings of this historic spirit. Kevin Loser, Master of Whiskey at Fedway Associates, will guide you through the differences of the expressions from Orphan Barrel's Barterhouse, Woodford, Blanton’s and Four Roses. Finish the night with complimentary cigars on the outdoor patio.
