April 16, 2015 – Wine Dinner
The makers of Educated Guess Wines, hosts of the April Wine Dinner, freely acknowledge that when they grow and harvest their grapes, then barrel and age their wines, they’re making an educated guess - as are you when you‘re making your wine selection. Having Chef Sean Kagy and host Bob Dalic make your pairing eliminates the worry and most of the guesswork.
