“Wine dinners are an excellent way for people to try wines they may never think of trying. It introduces them to varietals outside what they are able to purchase locally. My culinary team and I strategically pair the wines and create dishes that enhance the nuances of each varietal. The wines we have selected for our guests showcase the food from Mattison’s beautifully. These dinners also allow attendees to meet the actual wine makers and vineyard owners something that usually only happens when visiting the wineries. We invite you to attend our wine dinners for a truly unique experience.” Chef Paul.
Those signing up for the entire Summer Wine Series will receive a bottle of Benziger wine signed by Chris Benziger and a Chef Paul Cookbook, CHEF signed by Chef Paul.
