5:30 p.m. | The Fearrington Granary
Join Trey Stephenson of Neal Rosenthal Imports and Wine Director Maximilian Kast for a tour of the wines of the Alps. In the heat of summer there are no better wines to take a break and cool off with. We will enjoy both white and red wines from Switzerland, Valle d’Aosta in Italy, and the Jura and Savoie in France. Join us and find out why these are some of our favorite summer time wines.
The dinner starts with a reception tasting and then a three course dinner with wine pairings, $75 including service and tax.
