If you like wine, then to spend an evening with the winemaker, who has poured his/her passion and soul into his/her wine, will leave a lasting impression and make you feel connected to that winery more than another.
When I was invited to Faith & Flower for one of their monthly “Terroir to Table” wine dinners, I couldn't say no. The theme was a Lyonnais Dinner featuring Larry Schaffer of Tercero Wines.
Larry started Tercero wines less than 10 years ago and has built the winery following through grassroots measures. This is why dinners like these are so valuable. Current wine club members attended but also non-members. After a meal with Larry, who is both eccentric and passionate, it is hard not to be converted to a fan.
