We have been a wine club member for 10 years. We look forward to lunch after wine tasting to figure out the best wine to buy for lunch and come back for dinner. One of our favorites.

These chef's are the best and can almost make a day of it when you join the wine club. Food not only is innovative but tastes so so so so good you'll keep coming back.
