Owners Tim Perr and Scott Knight, both local Palisadians, founded Pali Wine Co. in 2005, intent on producing wines that “speak well of their origin and varietal”, and to bring those wines to the consumer at the best price without compromising quality. Winemaker Aaron Walker (pictured above-photo credit to Pali Wine Co.) joined the team in 2007 to help implement this plan and continues to garner wide acclaim for his efforts. He makes wine under three labels: Pali Wine Co., Tower 15 and the newest brand, Neighborhood Winery. Tonight, we will have an opportunity to taste 5 of his current releases including two natural wines from the Pali label, paired with mouth-watering cuisine created by Orto’s culinary team. Come meet and chat with the exciting man behind the wines and get the inside scoop on the winery and their future plans.
We will be dining al fresco (outside, under the stars) in Orto’s lovely piazza so dress warmly!
