Cheers to Summer and Friends
Per Walter Moers “Wine is drinkable sunlight. It’s the most glorious summer’s day imaginable, captured in a bottle”.
Time to celebrate the beginning of summer with friends and wine! Wear your favorite casual summer colors and join us at the micro-restaurant in Creekside – Avila Flavors and Experiences (www.avilaexperiences.com).
Avila has created a custom tasting menu paired with wines from the Chaîne cellar that will make this a memorable kick-off to summer as you share your summer travel plans with each other. You will be able to experience how the same wine pairs with different tasting dishes.
