Each month, we host a wine dinner on the first Tuesday of the month. This month’s theme was Italian! Wine importer Eros Spinozzi, a wonderful character, was in the house to talk about his amazing selection of wines along with Ashe’s Wine & Spirits our partner in these sold-out dinners! Here’s a view of the evening. These next dinner, and informal dinner focusing on Rosé wines is almost sold out so get in touch, and you can still get in on July’s “Brinner “Dinner” – Breakfast for Dinner…with Wine! Call 865-330-0123 or email us for reservations!
