WELLINGTON WINE DINNER
Wednesday, October 22
Peter Wellington quietly puts out a diverse array of outstanding wines in his little parcel of land in the heart of Sonoma’s Valley of the Moon. We are proud to have served his Cabernet Sauvignon at Black Trumpet by the glass forever, and his other wines are just as wonderful.
Peter doesn’t make it out our way very often, so this is a rare chance to meet the man behind the wines. A very hands-on winemaker, he will regale us all about the land and vines he inherited when he bought his Sonoma vineyard, and what he has done to produce some radically different wines (like his mysterious port and Alicante bousquet) while celebrating the legacy of the terroir.
Denise and Evan witnessed a bottling at the winery several years ago and are so honored to have Peter at Black Trumpet, we can hardly wait. We expect this dinner to sell out quickly, so please let us know ASAP if you would like to book a reservation
ROWAN JACOBSEN APPLE DINNER AND BOOK SIGNING
