Our wine dinners are always something special, and this one, featuring the fine wines of Fernandez de Pierola, is no exception. We’ll have a reception and flamenco show at 6 p.m., followed by a five-course dinner designed to pair perfectly with wines. We’ll even have a special guest, Miguel Negrete, on hand to tell us about the wines, the winery, and how to get the most out of the flavors you’re tasting. The wine dinner costs $75 per person; tax and gratuity are extra. Call 708-547-7177 to reserve your spot.
