Steeke Winemaker Dinner



This is one heck of a deal for a multi-course wine dinner: ~luella is welcoming Jed Steele for its inaugural winemaker dinner~. Jed's passion for thinking beyond simple terroir has led to the creation of an array of astounding wines. Wines that range from delicate to bold and that will pair with every style of cuisine. In Jed's own words, "Two things that most readily fire the imagination: making love and drinking wine." Join Jed and luella for a night of food, friends, and extraordinary wine.
