"One of the biggest pleasures of being the Wine Director at Persimmon is sourcing unique and delicious food friendly wines from otherwise unknown regions and bringing them to your dinner table. I recently identified a batch of wines, all of which are personal favorites of mine, that either do not fit into the usual 'regional focus' or are new wines from regions already covered. Among the wines that will be poured is a Trousseau-based sparkling wine from France's Jura region, a Swiss white wine made from Fendant, a luscious Condrieu, and a rustic Sagrantino di Montefalco -- just to name a few. Don't miss this opportunity to taste some unique wines -- as always paired with a multi-course menu created by Champe Speidel."
Communal and very limited seating. 6:30 p.m. $125/person, including tax and gratuity.
