Mark Ryan Winery + Sleight of Hand Cellars Wine Dinner
We are thrilled to welcome local winemakers Mark McNeilly of Mark Ryan Winery and Trey Busch of Sleight of Hand Cellars for an exclusive wine dinner on Wednesday, May 7.
Mark and Trey will also be launching the highly anticipated Idle Hands, a new wine from the Under Ground Wine Project at the dinner. A joint collaboration, the winery produced just a 100 cases of its first wine in 2007. The wine flew out of the winery, and they were eager to team up again. Only 700 cases of the 2012 vintage were produced, and they expect them to sell just as quickly. The dinner will provide an opportunity to taste the wine and see the beautiful label designed by a Milanese calligrapher.
Both winemakers will be on hand to talk wine and enjoy the spectacular menu created by the Sophie & Eric. This is sure to be a lively, educational, and delicious evening!
