Summer Winemaker's Dinner


Saturday August 9, 2014
6:00 pm Dinner

 4232 Fowler Ln #101, Diamond Springs, CA 95619 

"By using local, sustainable, and organic foods we celebrate farmers and producers as stars: illuminating a path to a more sensible approach to rediscovering food as medicine for our communities and for the land"

 Manzanita - Shared Kitchen & Event Space
Table Nectar - Local & Organic Catered Events 

    We first met Kim Medici and Andrew Tannehill when they visited Narrow Gate over two years ago and didn't get too far into the conversation of organic, biodynamic, non-gmo etc....before we knew we'd be partnering with them in the future to create a fantastic winemaker dinner featuring our Biodynamic grown Estate wines and their creative, delicious, locally sourced, sustainable or organic pairings! They are an energetic team with exceptional culinary skills and truly gifted in the art of wine pairing.
