Last night was our first exclusive wine dinner we have done at Tastings Wine Bar & Bistro. We were very fortunate to have Duckhorn Vineyards as our partner for our first dinner. Thanks to Frank (Duckhorns East Coast Rep) for flying in from NYC to host our dinner. The dinner was for 12 people in our private wine room. We had a great time and look forward to hosting many more of these exclusive dinners in the future.
