MARCH WINE DINNER
Save the date for Thursday, March 20, 2014.
Check back here soon for March’s menu and wine pairings!
Join us as we celebrate the rich history of Yalumba Winery. It was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, a British migrant and brewer, who brought his family to Angaston in Australia seeking a new life. After purchasing a 30 acre parcel of land just beyond the south-eastern boundary of Angaston, Smith and his son began planting the first vines by moonlight. Join Danielle Winkler as she introduces these outstanding wines and experience a flavorful meal prepared by Chef Rick Argoso.
