<a id="Solare-Silver-Oak-Wine-Dinner"></a>Silver Oak!  The Legend ~ Wine Dinner @ Solare

November 13 - Silver Oak! The Legend ~ Wine Dinner @ Solare

Silver Oak is clearly a legend of California wine making. Everything started in 1972 when Ray Duncan and Justin Meyer teamed up to create their first vintage wine (Alexander Valley). Their strong initial focus was pure cabernet sauvignon and for the Silver Oak brand, that is all they continue to make. And it is famous across the world for its high quality and consistency. The Duncan family added the name, Twomey, to their portfolio to include the varietals of merlot, pinot noir, and sauvignon blanc. We will be tasting these wines during the dinner, of course.

This dinner is led personally by Quelene Slattery of the Silver Oak Team. $125/person for 5 select Silver Oak wines including their Napa Valley and Alexander Valley cabernet sauvignon bottlings. The 4-course tasting dinner is designed by Exec Chef Filippo Piccini. 6:45pm Dinner ~ 6:15pm Reception with Quelene.

RSVP! Reserve today via email or call 619-270-9670
