2020 Special Wine Dinner Events: Savor the Dates

Effective March 16, 2020 our Tastemaker Wine Dinner program has been suspended until further notice. Bringing people together has always been what we’re about. But right now, as everyone is encouraged to practice social distancing and avoid group gatherings, we feel this is the prudent decision and in line with current public health recommendations. We look forward to welcoming you back for our modified lineup of wine dinners later this year!
