Montes Wine Maker Dinner - Tuesday, September 2
Kick off your back to work/school season with an evening of wonderful wine and food. Montes is one of our favorite wineries. Over the past five years, we have buffed the industry standard by pouring Montes' Chilean Malbec, rather than the usual Argentine Malbec. The more elegant style and bright juicy fruit that Montes offers continues to impress guests and over-deliver in quality.
For this dinner, we will welcome special guest Alberto Eckholt (Head Winemaker for Montes), who will be featuring some of his winery's reserve bottlings, including the Purple Angel, which is arguably the best Carmenere-based wine in the world! We will begin with an hors d'oeuvres reception, followed by a journey through some fantastic Chilean wine perfectly paired with a special menu from Chef Shaun Garcia.
Hors d'oeuvres reception at 6:30, followed by dinner at 7:00. The cost is $65++/person including wine pairings. For reservations, please call 864.232.7007.
