In addition, "I will prepare small bites to best complement each wine selection," said Nathan Powers. "Based on each wine's flavor profile, I'm going to have a little fun with the ingredients!"
The event will cost $15 per person for the wine selections and $5 for the small-plate pairings and will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
