About: Wine Dinner at Bone and Broth with MetroWines
and Vine Connections
Join us at Bone and Broth on Wednesday, September 25th starting 6pm
for "A Walk Through the Andes" at Bone and Broth on Charlotte Street. Our host for the evening will be Donna Creese from Vine Connections.
"This dinner is all about the wines of Chile and Argentina," says Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines. "We hope to introduce you to some new wines, different flavors and pairings you might not have considered!"
Bone and Broth Chef Chris Benson has tasted all the wines to create just the right food pairing. "His expertise and extra attention to the pairing process makes all the difference for diners," says Sam Douglas, General Manager of Bone and Broth.
With this focus on Chile and Argentina, expect the unexpected! We welcome you with a Rose from Chile, then four courses paired with four wines that well represent the region, followed by dessert.
Because of the popularity of past wine pairing dinners at Bone and Broth, seating will be limited. We encourage you to reserve your seat as soon as possible.

About Vine Connections:
Nick Ramkowsky and Ed Lehrman got their wine careers started early. Nick began working at North Berkeley Wine Shop while attending UC Berkeley, eventually becoming the store’s manager and wine buyer. Ed started collecting wine as a hobby and storing it in the bottom 2 drawers of his dorm dresser at Duke University before moving to NYC where he worked at New York’s premier wine shop, Sherry-Lehmann.
While on a trip in 1999 visiting wineries in Mendoza, Argentina, Ed and Nick realized they had to introduce America to the best wines from the world’s 5th largest (but still fairly unknown) wine producing country. They decided to form and launch Vine Connections, which pioneered the first nationally-imported portfolio of artisan wines from Argentina More about Vine Connections: http://www.vineconnections.com
