Hello, Kind Feastlings.
It’s that time of year, when grapevines go dormant, and winemakers, like Capistrano swallows, head for warmer climes. Peter Franus comes to Tucson from his eponymous winery to bring delicious offerings which we intend to pair with some delicious offerings of our own. If you’d like to join us, the details are below. Please call us at 326-9363 for a reservation, as web or email reservations will not guarantee you a place at the dinner. We hope you can join us.
