INSPIRING YOUR CULINARY ADVENTURE

Please join our friends from Pedernales Cellars, a winery created by one sixth-generation Texas farming family, for an evening of eating, drinking, learning and laughing. We’ve created an extra-special five-course dinner menu aimed at showcasing the wonderful Pedernales wines to their fullest extent. And we’ll learn all the details about each vintage from San Antonio-born wine educator and brand ambassador Cecilia Barretto, who learned a lot of what she knows during three years of studying and working with wine in France. We’ll also benefit from comments and dollops of family history from Julie Kuhlken, co-founder of Pedernales Cellars with her brother David, who now serves as president and winemaker. With a doctorate in philosophy and teaching credentials from American and European universities, Julie should be nothing if not thoughtful when it comes to her family’s wines. The Kuhlkens founded Pedernales Cellars with Frederik Osterberg from Sweden, which certainly helps explain the traditional wine called glogg made and sold by the winery each year during the holidays.
