On Wednesday, October 28, August, welcomes Susan Ridley of Hendry Ranch Wines (Napa Valley, CA) to help preside over an extraordinary pairing experience with a six-course dinner menu specially created by Executive Chef, Mike Gulotta, and Chef John Besh.

The vineyard is divided into 50 different blocks, each of which is managed separately and based on variables such as slope inclination and graduation to climatic influences. Some of the varietals featured at the dinner will include Pinot Gris, Albarino, Pinot Noir Block 4&5, Zinfandel Block 28, and Zinfandel Block 7&22.
