New Jersey Wine Events and Festivals 2016:

 

Peay Vineyard Wine Dinner – Aug 31

new jersey wine events - pluckerton inn

Join Pluckemin Inn for an evening of superb wines from Sonoma’s Peay Vineyards, one of the hottest wineries on the cool Sonoma Coast. Special guest Andy Peay will guide us through the wines and this incredible terroir on the Sonoma Coast. Almost more Burgundian than classically Californian in style (or Rhone-like in the case of the Syrahs), Peay wines are known for their beautifully delineated fruit tones, focused precision, fresh acidity, moderate alcohol, and their ability to age. We will pair selections of their Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs and Syrahs with a menu crafted by Executive Chef Andrew Lattanzio.

Date: Wednesday, August 31st, 2016 from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm
Address: Pluckemin Inn – 359 Route 206 South & Pluckemin Way Bedminster, NJ
Cost: $125 per person plus tax and gratuity
