Wine & Dine with Janet Trefethen

Trefethen Family Vineyards

Established in 1968, Trefethen Family Vineyards is one of the oldest and most respected names in Napa Valley, and on Wednesday, October 3rd, you’ll get a chance to taste five decades worth of expertise at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Sit down to a four-course dinner from the hotel’s chef Daniel Bruce hosted by none other than Janet Trefethen, whose experience bringing wine to Boston dates back to 1990, when she was the host of the very first Boston Wine Festival. She’s bringing library wines (including a 1991 Estate Cabernet) to pair with your hearty fall meal, and likely a couple of stories to accompany your tasting notes. Reservations, including tax and gratuity, are $175 per person, available here.
