Being great friends of Wine Noir, Chef Ben Cohn (named Best Chefs America in 2013) and Westside's General Manager, Kevin Brady, have scheduled a special, five-course dinner in honor of Black History Month, featuring African-American owned wineries.
Dan Glover of L'Objet Noir Wines and Raymond Smith of Indigené Cellars will be with us and guide us through their wines. Plus, I've learned some of the history of Black American's involvement historically in the wine biz, going back to Thomas Jefferson's vineyards.
Contact Kevin Brady immediately at: email@example.com to reserve your spot. $65.00, excluding tax and gratuity. Seats will go quickly, because Westside is inviting their own guests, as well.
