Akbar – Marina del Rey & Gourmet Wine Getaways

Proudly present

A GOURMET WINE TASTING DINNER

Featuring the wines of

Kistler Vineyards & Occidental Wines
Sonoma, California

Host: Peter D. Kerr, The Wine Consultant

Saturday, July 22, 2017 at 7:00 PM
$120 per person, inclusive of tax and gratuity

The history of Kistler Vineyards dates back to 1978 when the Kistler family founded the winery in Sonoma County. Their first vintage, 1979, was a mere 3,500 cases. Wine production has grown to 25,000 cases & they now receive regular accolades from many notable wine critics.

In 2013, winemaker Steve Kistler founded Occidental Wines with the goal of producing world-class PNO from the Freestone-Occidental AVA in Sonoma. Wine critics, with their scores, say Steve is hitting home runs! Many of these wines are only available to their wine list subscribers, so this is a rare opportunity to enjoy & stock up on these highly sought after wines at very attractive prices.

Owner/chef Avinash Kapoor has created a wonderful menu to pair with five of Steve’s wines. Join Gourmet Wine Getaways’ wine expert Peter Kerr as we explore these wines & food pairings.

Limited to 22 guests so reserve early!
