This Wednesday’s Millennium Winemaker Dinner — Special for Vegansaurus readers! »
Hey! You know how you want to be fancy all the time but you also need to hoard your groats!? Well, we’ve got a solution! Well, kind-of!
Millennium is offering their Millennium’s September Winemaker Dinner THIS WEDNESDAY for $60 instead of $75 if you mention you heard about it on Vegansaurus! It’s just that easy! So, you can’t be HELLA poor if you wanna go, but you can be cheap and wanting of an extra $15 in your pocket. You can use that money to buy me diamonds and rubies and a pony and seven sandwiches LAY OFF ME I’M STARVING.
Here’s the skinny from Millennium:
Our wine director Chris Tavelli is thrilled to partner with Terra Savia for our September winemaker dinner. Owner and Winemaker Jim Milone is a fourth generation Hopland Winegrower and has been making wine for over 30 years. He adheres to the highest standards of organic certification and, committed to land conservation and wildlife preservation, considers impact on our environment throughout the winemaking process. Jim produces one of the few organic California sparkling wines and uses the traditional Champagne method. Eric Tucker, Emmy Miller and their team are excited to have the opportunity to create a five course globally influenced, locally sourced menu around these delicious wines. Join us for an unforgettable evening with Chris and Jim Milone from Terra Savia who will be on hand to discuss the wines and to answer any questions you may have.
"put more effort in the vineyard and minimize treatment in the cellar; winemaking starts when you lay down the first compost in the Fall and prune in winter."
