LAST CHANCE: Vinography Wine Dinner at Manresa

manresa.jpgThe last Vinography dinner sold out in a hurry, but there are still some seats available for this one! Join me next Thursday, September 22nd, for an evening of small production wines from Northern California and the fabulous food of Chef David Kinch at Manresa, featuring ingredients from small artisanal producers around the state.

Manresa was just awarded Four Stars by the San Francisco Chronicle, putting it on a par with The French Laundry and five other of the top dining destinations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Not to mention that it's #38 on the list of the top 50 restaurants in the world. If you've been wanting to go, this dinner is a fabulous opportunity to check it out, and have some good wine and good conversation besides.

Or, if you've been there before, I shouldn't have to do much convincing to get you to come join me for some of the better wine and food pairing to be found in the Bay Area. By way of a sneak preview, here are the wines that I'm planning on pouring:

2003 CrauforD Sauvignon Blanc -- 1800 cases produced
2002 Marc Aubert "Ritchie Vineyard" Chardonnay -- 700 cases produced
2001 Campion "Firebreak" Pinot Noir -- 210 cases produced
2001 Casa Nuestra "Tinto St. Helena" Red Field Blend -- 150 cases produced
2002 Stony Hill Semillion de Soleil dessert wine -- 120 cases produced

Vinography's "Drink Small" Wine Dinner
Thursday, September 22, 2005
6:30 PM, Limited seating

Manresa Restaurant
320 Village Lane
Los Gatos, CA 95030

$175 per person, tax and tip not included.

Call the restaurant ASAP at 408-354-4330 for reservations.

If you're planning on attending, please make arrangements to avoid driving afterwards. The Los Gatos police are very strict and hyper-vigilant about DUI. There are lodging options in Los Gatos, and the restaurant can help point you in the right direction if you need them to.

I know this one hasn't happened yet, but please have another! I cannot make it on the 22nd, although I'd dearly love to... I'll keep my fingers crossed that I'll get an opportunity again!

I love reading your site - thank you!

Dangit, though Mr. FM and I are still in the throes of debate, I think we're going to have to skip this. It's an insanely busy week and we're both hugely disappointed but what can you do? I know! You can have another one :)
