VOLO "MICRO-PRODUCTION" RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY WINEMAKER DINNER WITH FRIEDEMAN WINES ON TUESDAY 12/9 FROM 7-10PM
We can't express how excited we are to host an extremely special evening Tuesday, December 9th, 2014 with some of the smallest production wines we've ever served.
How small you ask? Volo prides itself on regularly offering boutique selections, many of which are just 3000 case production or less, with total production from vineyards of less than 10,000 cases. Wine Director Shad Martin also sources wines from offbeat regions around the world, rare varietals, and/or old world producers focused on high quality/lower yields.
So if 3000 case production is boutique, then what would you call 20, 25, or 50 case production? We call it delicious.
Michelin Bib Gourmand rated Volo chef/partner Stephen Dunne, Pastry Chef Suzi Beu, and Wine Director Shad Martin are excited to collaborate to pair winemaker Brooks Friedeman's wines with what will be a six-course menu of sublime & decadent tastes & flavors.
Guest Arrival 7:00pm, Seated Dinner 7:15pm
Cost: $115 per guest inclusive of tax & gratuity ($88.50pp food & beverage) Space is limited and advance online ticket purchase is required. Thank you & we hope to see you there!
