Hoyt Hill of Village Wines asked me to let you know that Gary White of Pali Vineyards is producing what are arguably the finest Pinot Noirs in California and Oregon today. His 2008 Durell Vineyard Pinot Noir was rated 96 points by Wine Spectator. Hoyt is planning a wonderful dinner featuring Gary's wines and chef Sal Avila's cuisine at 360 Bistro at 6:30 p.m. this Tuesday, May 17. The cost is only $45 plus tax and gratuity. Carrington recently raved about Chef Avila's food, so it should definitely be worth checking out.
Finally, Grace's Plaza Wine and Spirits is teaming up with Rumors Wine & Art Bar in 12South for a "He Said Beer/She Said Wine" tasting next Thursday, May 19, from 6 to 9 p.m.
In an attempt to schedule an ongoing debate in many households, they will be pairing three different wines and beers with an assortment of artisan cheeses to see which beverage really does go better with food. You can be the judge.
$20 per person ($25 per person at the door)
