Amelia Islander

Wine Appreciation Dinner

Nov 06, 2013 02:00AM
The ancient guild known as La Chaine des Rotisseurs, is the oldest and largest food and wine society in the world. The United States chapter is now in its 53rd year, with about 6,000 gourmands, chefs, restaurateurs, hoteliers, oenologists, winery owners, sommeliers, and others interested in the finest of dining and life experiences, and enjoying the camaraderie of friends at dinners and events. Throughout 2012 and 2013, Garry Fehrman, Gary Snyder, and Ross Griffin, all long time aficionados of La Chaine, applied their passions to delivering a series of events known as La Chaine Experience, to expose Amelia Island residents to the society’s activities and traditions.

The next La Chaine wine and dinner event will be held on November 10 at 6:30 p.m. at Don Quixote Restaurant in downtown Fernandina Beach, featuring the spectacular wines of Alvaro Palacios of Priorat, Spain. The menu is a selection of Spanish bistro favorites, and all the wines are rated outstanding or better. The event is sponsored by La Chaine Des Rotisseurs of Amelia Island, Inc. Tickets are $160 per person, advance reservation only. For more information call (9040 277-2011. For more information about La Chaine visit www.chaineus.org
