Wine Dinners

Occasionally, we’re graced with a winemaker or winery representative who’s passing through Tucson. When they do, we’ll highlight their wines with a special dinner of four or five courses with a guest speaker- a winemaker, an importer or a winery representative. Watch this space to know about upcoming dinners, or make it easier on yourself by subscribing to our email list.

Wine Dinner with Adam English of Vista Hills

The wines of Elena Walch- a dinner with Armin Gratl

This is predominantly because winemakers, marketing directors and wine folk in general pretty much get to decide when they’re headed where they’re headed. That is, if you can go sell wine to my brother in Colorado in […]
