On October 16th, Lemaire will be hosting Peter Franus and featuring his Napa Valley wines for a very special winemaker dinner. Peter's efforts in the vineyards translate to a more subtle, complex, and harmonious style of Napa wine. A myriad of grapes to work with, from Cabernet Sauvignon to Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc to Albarino, they showcase the range of styles that can come from California’s most famous region.
With cooler vineyard sites and a lighter touch in the winery, Peter Franus’ line-up brings a more feminine and delicate style compared to the power that usually hails from Napa. So put down the rake, finish up the jack-o-lanterns, and come join us for lovely harvest dinner!
For more information or to reserve your seats, please contact The Jefferson Hotel’s resident sommelier, Shawn O’Keefe, at (804) 649-4629 or via e-mail at [email protected].
