Peter Kerr, the wine expert from Gourmet Wine Getaways, will join Mike Sinor to discuss the wines, pairings, and answer any wine-related questions.

The evening will begin with a Welcome Reception featuring a refreshing Prosecco to prepare your palate. The menu for the dinner includes Olive Tapenade on Sour Dough Crostini, 2022 Sinor-Lavallee Pinot Noir, Triple-cooked Pork Belly with black cherry lacquer and polenta, Lebanese Skewered Lamb Loin with grilled veggies and couscous, a selection of Gourmet Cheeses, and 2020 Ancient Peaks Renegade wine from the Margarita Vineyard.
