Thursday, June 23, 2011 – 6:30 pm
Every other year The Five-Star Sensation is held in Cleveland benefiting University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center. Top chefs, winery owners, winemakers and National Sales Reps from California participate in this event. Over the years we have been able to coerce one or two of these participants out to Vermilion for a wine dinner. This year we were able to convince five wineries to join us for our annual California wine dinner. We will feature thirteen of their wines.
Please join us as we feature wines from Adelaida Winery of Paso Robles, Cade Winery, Clos Pegase and Venge Winery from The Napa Valley and Patz & Hall from The Napa Valley & Sonoma Valley.
