Wine Club Dinner in the Vineyard 2017
August 12, 2017
6:00 p.m. Sangria and Tapas
7:00 p.m Dinner
Liz Bokisch is planning our 9th annual "Wine Club Dinner in the Vineyard". This is one of Liz and Markus's favorite events! The dinner is held at their home in a beautiful setting next to their Las Cerezas vineyard. Once again, we have the privilege of getting the menu personally designed by Chef Mark Berkner of Taste Restaurant. If you haven’t been to Taste, then make sure you get your reservations soon! Taste is a fine dining restaurant located in the sleepy town of Plymouth at the gateway to the Shenandoah Valley in Amador County. Markus and Liz recently went there for their 26th wedding anniversary and stayed the night at Rest, their boutique hotel located next door. Taste has received rave reviews and were even invited to serve at the James Beard House in NYC, a great honor. The menu will be designed specifically to match the flavor profiles of the wine with the food. Each course will be paired with a Bokisch or Tizona wine.
This year we will have a special performance by local flamenco dance group! So be prepared to be swept off your feet and taken to Spain with Spanish wines, dance, sangria, tapas and an excellent gourmet dinner!
The eventing will start at 6pm with a poolside sangria and tapas hour. At 7pm we will sit at one long table under the stars and you will be served by Markus and Liz's sons, Anton and Stefan, along with their friends. There will be an intermission between courses when they will pull out the "porron" and pass it along! At the end of the evening, we will light on fire a specialty fisherman's drink called "Cremat" which is spiced coffee and rum. This will be a night to remember! Don’t forget to bring a light jacket, sweater or shawl as the delta breeze picks up it can get chilly towards the end of the evening.
The ticket price of $120 is all inclusive. Club members may purchase a maximum of 4 tickets. We are limiting this dinner to 60 guests to allow for an elaborate menu, great service and time for visiting with all our guests.
The dinner sold out so quickly our heads are spinning! Please join the waiting list. You'll be the first to know if tickets become available.
