Krupp Brothers / Veraison Wine Dinner @ Nana’s (4/24)

With Special Guest Winemaker Tres Goetting on Tuesday, April 24th, price $65pp

From the Hope Valley Bottle Shop newsletter:
For the April dinner, we had been planning on doing a Magnum dinner, but when we were offered the opportunity to host the winemaker for Krupp Brothers and Veraison during his first ever trip to North Carolina, we jumped at the chance. These are incredible California wines of intensity and lip-smacking good fruit, and they have quite a following in the area. While the wines are of a price point that requires charging a touch more for the dinner, the quality of the wines and Scott’s food still make it a bargain! More details will follow as the dinner approaches, but I know many regulars who will be calling immediately for this dinner! This will sell out, so don’t delay!
