To cap off the night, you don’t want to miss our Grenache Day Night Celebration at Suite D beginning at 6:30 pm.

Join some of your favorite local winemakers as they pour their Grenache in all colors! In a walkabout format, this will be a true GRENACHE celebration of great wine, food and friends.

This is a once a year celebration that you do not want to miss, and will include live music by the BUTTERDISHES and dinner by the fig rig!!
