Next Monday, August 10th, beginning at 6:30 PM, Current Fish & Oyster and Francis Fecteau of Libation, Inc. will host the first in a series of educational wine dinners: "Meet the Winemaker." 

According to Fecteau, the event will feature the dry farmed, old vine wines of Mendocino."

Expert winemaker Sebastian Donoso will be on hand to chat with diners and highlight wines from Via Cellars and Trinafour.

Donoso will be presenting two wines from his up and coming wine label Via Cellars: a light bodied, crisp and aromatic Tocai Friulano; and a seafood friendly Nebbiolo Rose.

In addition, guests will also be tasting a Carignane and Petite Sirah from Donoso’s mentor Alex Macgregor’s Trinafour.

Chef Logen Crew will pair a special three course menu to pair with these beautiful terroir driven wines. Pastry Chef Alexa Norlin will round out the night with a tantalizing dessert.
