Join us on May 13th for a dinner pitting the world's standard against the young upstart! Our two guest sommeliers will be tasked with pairing classic wines and the younger, American versions with a distinctive menu specially created for the evening. Guests will enjoy a gourmet meal while the presenters will discuss, explain and debate the merits of their selections. Which pairing will prevail? Does the judgement of Paris still hold true 40 years later? Eight wine tastings battling throughout a four course Chef's Menu - you decide who wins!
