September 27, 2017 Wine Dinner

Time: 6.30pm

Cost: $80.00

Cafe Renaissance and Sommelier Jacqui LaFon Proudly Present:

2 Varietals, 2 Ways: Chenin Blanc and Grenache

for the September Wine Dinner. See how the same grape can be made into two very different styles.

Chenin blanc can pair both with fruity flavors or creamy ravioli, while Grenache

can be so light that it pairs with fish, heavy to pair with beef, or made into Port!
