I can’t think of a more apt holiday treat than to have a wine dinner a couple of days after Christmas. Just when the boxes are out and the turkey leftovers are waning you can walk out the front door announcing to your in-laws that you are going to have a nice dinner at that fun new midtown restaurant run by that guy with one eyebrow.
It will be a great night with great food and great wine. Two Yountville wineries will be featured and both are very highly regarded. L’Angevin is a lauded outfit with Burgundian focus showing some stellar chardonnays and wonderful pinot noirs. Pierson Meyer has a wonderful array of wines and we’ll be featuring their pinot noir, chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon. The really wonderful kicker is that the co-owner and winemaker for both wineries is Robbie Meyer, a lauded cellar master who spent years at Peter Michael Winery and is a native of Marietta, GA.
Come on by. It’ll be a great dinner to showcase some very sought-after wines from two wonderful wineries.
