Wine Dinner

Featuring Winemaker Andrew Jones

Thursday, Feb. 22, 2018  |  6:30 p.m.
$99/person | All-inclusive: six courses, wine pairings, tax & gratuity

Join us for this exclusive wine dinner in the State Room. Andrew Jones is the winemaker for five wine labels including Field Recordings, Fiction, The Fableist, Alloy and Wonderwall. Mr. Jones’s primary job is at a vine nursery, where he plans and plants vineyards for winemakers throughout California, especially in the Central Coast region. By his estimation, he has stood in almost every vineyard in that region. Through this work, he has developed a keen ability to identify unknown and underappreciated vineyard sites that he feels have enormous potential. It also allows him access to high-quality grapes from small vineyards throughout the Central Coast. He uses this fruit to make the wines for his different brands.

This is a prepay event.  Please call a State Room manager to make your prepay reservation: 517-884-8101
