Coast to Coast Wine Dinner

On Thursday, August 23rd, Meritage Restaurant + Wine Bar is heading out on a cross-country road trip that’s all about American wine (don’t worry, they’ll be your designated driver). Taste your way through the USA in five courses prepared by chef Daniel Bruce, starting with oysters and bubbles in Westport, Mass. and moving through wineries in New York, Washington, Oregon, to finish with dessert and a late-harvest Sauvignon Blanc in the hills of sunny California. Tickets for this cross-country tasting are $175, and the (proverbial) bus leaves at 7:00pm. Take a look at the full spread below and reserve your first-class seat here.
