Dinner With Rajat Parr & Sandhi Wines: August 14th, 2012

"We are highly stoked to be hosting Sommelier Rajat Parr for a dinner on August 14th. Raj is the executive wine director for the Michael Mina Restaurant Group, and he also owns two hit restaurants of his own, RN74 San Fran and RN74Seattle. Raj is one of the world's most respected sommeliers, and with the publication of his James Beard Award-winning book Secrets of the Sommeliers in 2010, Raj nestled into the informal, generally-agreed-upon role of 'Most Famous Wine Guy Around, Probably.'

The dinner will feature Raj's newest endeavor, Sandhi Wines, a collaborative effort between himself and two others. Sandhi produces excellent, thoughtful styles of both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from California's cool-and-sunny Central Coast. It starts at 7 PM, and be aware that space is very limited, so do call for your reservation asap. It's a great opportunity to drink with one of the world's most talented tasters." 

-Wine Director Steven Grubbs
