  • Salinas, CA (1888PressRelease) April 03, 2013 - Learn, Swirl, Sip and Enjoy! Meet the Winemakers and enjoy a four course dinner with wine paired to each course.

    During the series winemakers will discuss the history, culture and qualities of the featured wines which will accompany Executive Chef Matt Bolton's seasonal menus. The winemakers series brings guests closer to the producers and personalities that craft the wine we love. "We are very excited about our 2013 series," said Wine Director Paul Fried. "We believe making wine is, in essence, farming, and in step with our farm-to-table philosophy.

    Our wine dinner series brings the farmers' passion for quality and natural goods to our guests."

    The Fourth Winemakers Dinner For 2013 is An Evening with Chris Weidemann of Pelerin Wines on Thursday, April 11, 2013. Pelerin is the French word for pilgrim. The motif represents an old world traveler on his humble journey and is emblematic of our quest to produce top-level wines from the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation. Building on exceptional quality fruit, Pelerin Wines is dedicated to traditional winemaking methods and to the creation of well-balanced wines with intensity, richness and multi-layered complexity. Pelerin aims to express uniqueness and deliciousness in the wines, as well as to convey their passion and creativity to the people who enjoy them. All of their fruit sources are under specific area control, and they use organically grown fruit where possible. All of the products are produced using artisan methods, and are bottled without fining or filtration. All of the work of the winery is done solely by the principals. www.pelerinwines.com
