Join us for an elaborate affair you won’t soon forget. These dinners start with a sparkling wine and cheese reception followed by a coursed dinner paired with wine.

Each course contains a Fenn Valley wine specifically paired by the chef and winemaker. The winemaker and other Fenn Valley staff are also available to talk about the wine and theory behind the pairings.

The wine and cheese reception begins at 6pm EASTERN with dinner immediately to follow.

    My wife and I have been coming to these Winemaker’s dinners for nearly two decades. We have only missed three in this time span. The food is always great and the pairings with the wines are incredible!
