An Evening with Cristom Vineyards

The Wines of Domaine Romanee Conti

For the most avid wine collectors the mere mention of the initials D.R.C. bring a hush to the room and require no translation. They are hallowed letters that represent one of the greatest estates on the planet. This evening affords wine lovers a rare opportunity to taste an array of vintages and vineyards side by side for one unparalleled evening.
Thursday February 27th
The convivial aspect of Spanish food and wine culture will come together on this night for a sampling of Spanish tapas and signature dishes, paired with the great wines from all over this diverse country.

The First Growths of Bordeaux
Saturday, March 22nd
When people mention the Fab Five, most minds head to the 5 guys from Liverpool. For us, we think of the other greats: Latuor, Margaux, Mouton, Lafite and Haut Brion. Join us as we sample these great first growths of Bordeaux along with some other lesser-known treasures from our cellar.
Tour de France
Thursday, March 20th
Being the largest wine producing country, France has many of the most sought-after wines in the world. In addition, it also produces a bounty of wines from lesser-known regions a little off the beaten path. Join us as Chef Robert McCormick cooks up classic regional specialties that you haven’t seen in years! These dishes will be paired with wines from some of our favorite small producers from the same regions.
