“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.” ― Ernest Hemingway
During this event, we are going to mix it up a bit. Most of us are familiar with Cabernets, Chardonnays, and Merlot, but else is out there? Come out and take a deeper dive into the world of wine with us and maybe find a new favorite.
We will share these amazing wines while enjoying Live Oak's uniquely Southern cuisine. Live Oak is one of Del Ray's newest restaurants, opening its doors in 2016. Check out their menu to the right.
$27 covers the wine expense, and you pay for your own meal. This will be a lot of fun. Each wine will be presented with detailed tasting notes and background of grape and region.
