Where
iNonni
981 Sibley Memorial Hwy
St Paul, MN 55118

David Silver is making the arrangements and will host the January iNonni wine club event.  To make this event special we will have dinner in the iNonni private wine room.  David knows the owner and the Maître d’.  They will create and design
a beautiful dinner with us.  Tommy, the Maître d’, provides one of the best wine experiences in the Twin Cities.  He will be our host.  Mark, the son of the owner, works for one of the leading Italian wine distributors in the country.

David will provide some of the best bottles from his collection, especially an assortment of top rated 1997 Brunello di Montalcino and Super Tuscans.  If any other member is planning on bringing a bottle to share, please let us know so David can organize the order in which they’re served

This promises to be a warm and wonderful evening.  Rumor also has it that some other members of the wine club will bring along a bottle or two of their favorite cellar wine to share making this a fantastic evening of good food and wine.

Wine Event Opportunities

Mark Sellner passes this on to the group:: Wine Dinner and Wine On Wayzata Bay
A note from Elli Ansari of The District Restaurant in Wayzata
I am writing because I thought I remembered that you were a member of the Wayzata Wine Club and I wanted to share something that just came up for us. We are reaching out to a few of our friends who we know enjoy wine and special experiences.

Mike Farmer, Winemaker and Founder of Euclid Wines in Napa is here by invitation. Euclid is a special partnership between Opus veteran winemaker Mike Farmer and his son Lucas. They are forging a legacy all their own with this finely crafted wine portfolio. District has arranged an exclusive opportunity for a wine dinner and conversation with Mike on Thursday, March 17th. It’s a smaller event so seating is limited. This exclusive multi-course dinner and tasting is 125.00/pp++ See more about Mike and Lucas here.
And for something on a different note–I’m working on an event called Wine On Wayzata Bay. It’s scheduled for Friday, June 24

. It’s an outdoor wine tasting at the Wayzata Yacht Club to benefit Wayzata Community Sailing Center (home port for Providence Academy’s sailing team) ticket sales aren’t up yet but soon at www.wineonwayzatabay.com

I’ll keep you posted

Please feel free to share this info with folks you feel would be interested.

Thanks Mark,

Elli Ansari
