Wine Dinners Return

We are please to announce the return of Wine Dinners!

Simi Vineyards Wine Dinner September 28th, 6pm

Wine Experts Peter & Donna from Wines in Focus, will be our guides for the evening. Wine has been a shared passion for Peter and Donna Hamer for over 30 years. They enjoy exploring the wine regions in France and California. They host wine seminars and dinners in restaurants and private homes. As a testament to focusing on wines, they have cataloged over 5,000 tastes. Their first love is sharing their wine experience with others.

Peter and Donna will take us through each of Chef Nicholas’ creations, pairing the perfect wine and noting the essence of each wine and how it lends itself to the marriage.
