This town has a lot of wine tastings and a lot that are, at best, ordinary. However, on Wednesday September 28, The Grape, and owner/sommelier Courtney Luscher, plays host to Domaine Serene from Oregon. This is one of the most fêted wineries in the country. Their specialty is their line of single vineyard Pinot Noirs, although they also score highly with their Chardonnays. The range to be tasted at the dinner looks good. The pairings including an older “Evenstad Reserve” Pinot Noir. If you want to savor some of the best Pinot Noirs made in America, or if you are a Burgundy lover looking for the same style of wine but made domestically, then this is the event for you. Of course, chef Brian Luscher and his sous chef Danyele McPherson also know how to cook, so that alone might be reason enough to attend.
