Pax Mahle Winemaker Dinner
Pax Mahle Winemaker Dinner
We are more than thrilled to have none other than the revered Pax Mahle as our featured guest for our second Winemaker Dinner of the year on the 26th (please note this date has changed from the original announcement).
Many of you will no doubt recognize Pax from his projects such as Wind Gap, Agharta, and his eponymous Pax wine labels representing some of the most adventurous and consistently well balanced creations we’ve tasted from the California wine scene. You can expect us to feature five of his delicious California wines along with a four course pairing of dishes crafted by our talented in house culinary team. Reserve your seat online!
