The suspense is building for the first winemaker dinner hosted by Salumiere Cesario.
Downtown Walla Walla’s gourmet grocery, 12 E. Main St., is partnering with J&J Vintners for an evening of food and wine Oct. 3. But mum’s the word on the menu until the event itself.
Salumiere owners Damon and Colby Burke are planning a different course for each of the four wines created by J&J Vintners owners Jeremy Petty and Jody Middleton. Wines will include J&Js 2012 Riesling, the first release 4 Boys Red Blend, first release cabernet sauvignon, first release merlot and first release syrah. Tickets are $50 each and payable upon reservation. There’s room for 30 people for the 6 p.m. dinner. For more details or to reserve a spot, call 529-5620.
