Looking for a nice Valentine’s Day option without the noise and pressure of Valentine’s Day proper? We think this dinner will be right up your alley.
TPWCo works with the best boutique growers to source varietals from across California to create thought provoking, approachable wine blends. This quote perhaps best embodies their mission statement:
“I’m motivated by the freedom I have to make creative blends. Our scope is unlimited — we source fun varietals and get to work with passionate, devoted growers. Ultimately it’s about making unique wines that we want to drink.”
—Jen Beloz, Winemaker, The Prisoner Wine Company
For this event we’ve hand-selected a handful of statement wines from their portfolio and paired these offerings with a nuanced and thoughtful 5 course wine dinner by Chef John Thomas.
This is the 2nd of 6 remaining wine dinners at 32 East before we set off for greener pastures. We hope that you are able to join us for our last hurrah.
