Casarena Wine Dinner

Please join us as we taste wines from the beautiful region of Mendoza, Argentina on Friday, August 17 from 6pm-9pm. Martin Perez Cambet with be joining us from the Casarena Winery and taking us though the deep wine culture of Argentina.

Casarena is forging a different path from the other wineries in Mendoza. Instead of searching for undiscovered terroirs in new places like the Uco Valley, it is discovering the hidden gems in its home region of Lujan de Cuyo—a place full of rich tradition, potential, and unique micro-terroirs.

Chef Zack has also prepared a four-course tasting menu that pairs perfectly with these rich wines.
