Silks Winemaker Dinners

~SILKS~ is kicking in their second round of winemaker dinners—I’d say Wine Director and Master Sommelier Richard Dean has been busy. And you know how I feel about Chef de Cuisine Joel Huff’s wonderful food. That Henriot dinner is calling.

What’s unique about these dinners is that each event is preceded by an hour-long tasting seminar with the winemaker or winery representative. This allows for a comprehensive examination of the wines as well as greater interaction between the guests and the winemaker. Following the tasting seminar, a four-course dinner will be served that pairs the wines with a menu especially created for the evening.

Prices are per person and do not include tax or gratuity. The schedule for the rest of the year is as follows:
