2010 Wine Dinners to Benefit Open Hand


Angove Family Winemakers, one of Australia’s oldest family-owned wine producers, is continuing its monthly San Francisco-based dinner series in the new year. Co-host Vivien Gay, a prominent leader within the Bay Area’s gay and lesbian community, has partnered with some San Francisco chefs to create diverse menus highlighting the Angove Nine Vines wines.

The four-course dinners will be paired with Nine Vines wines from South Australia: 2008 Grenache-Shiraz Rosé, 2008 Viognier, and 2008 Shiraz-Viognier. Each of these wines are sourced from Angove’s own Nanya vineyard and premium growers in the Murray Valley of South Australia, 150 miles northeast of Adelaide.

A limited number of tickets are available for $75 per person. Tickets are now on sale for the first three dinners in 2010.
