*** Summer Special Events***

June 21st  Sat: The Annual Tasting Dinner.

We gather in the garden & lounge for passed hors d’oeuvres & Sparkling wine, followed by a six course menu with wine pairings. We will feature new menu items for the upcoming Summer as well as testing/tasting new wines for the summer list, some of them Southern Hemisphere from American vintners… Fun!

July 19th Sat: Our 2nd annual Cape Sea to Shore Dinner.

Once again we invite our local purveyors for a “Farmer’s Market” start in the garden. Our wonderful shellfish, lobster, herb and produce people will be on hand, in person!! The faces behind the glorious oysters/lobsters/herbs!! We will nosh on hors d’oeuvres and two local Cape Cod wines, as well as the wines of Joe Carr, a Dennis resident who makes his wine in Napa. Joe will be on hand to mingle and discuss the wines we will be drinking.  Dinner will feature all of the above, with the local wines paired with the menu, plus, local Cape fish, birds and meat in a casual, fun event. A feast of the Cape’s bounty!!  Sadly, Barry Clifford will not be on hand since his discovery of the ship, the Santa Maria, takes him back to Haiti for the month… we’ll hoist a glass to his success.

August 9th, Saturday: Vintner’s Dinner. Paul Hobbs Wines

This year we will highlight the wines of Paul Hobbs. He has a fervent following (including us!) and his pinot noir is absolutely amazing. He has a second label & vineyards in CrossBarn, with connections in Argentina where he has his own vineyards and wine production. We will run the gamut on his wine collection and will prepare an elegant menu around the wines themselves. Those of you who know some of the wines can explore the whole range; those of you yet to be introduced will be thrilled. Join his wine club, as much of this is unavailable & perhaps schedule a visit to the winery & tasting room, which is absolutely gorgeous. We are hopeful that Matt Hobbs will attend and discuss the wines in person….

The Champagne Dinner with host Mario Rinaldi of Paul Goerg Champagne; Sunday August 31st.

Back by popular demand the Marvelous Mario!!! Born & raised in Champagne: international rep for the house of Pual Goerg, the official wine of the house of Monaco, and Bentley cars!!! This is our traditional end of summer sparkler. Champagnes in the garden and a champagne dinner predicated on the wine itself, the wine of kings!! A rare chance to compare the various grand houses & styles, from NV to Rose’s & Blanc de Blanc. We encourage everyone to wear their last Summer whites & hoist a flute to the end of what will certainly be a glorious summer. Go out in sparkles!!
