Lockwood Restaurant & Bar (17 E. Monroe Street) welcomes Bonny Doon Vineyards for this month’s Meet the Winemaker event. Hosted on the last Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m., Meet the Winemaker gives guests the opportunity to interact and indulge in a spirited evening, enjoying not just the wine, but also the winemaker’s passion and knowledge of his craft.
Tickets are $25 per attendee and include a wine tasting along with Chef Joseph Rose’s selected accompaniments. If guests wish to continue the educational experience with the featured winemaker, Chef Rose will create a special pairing menu after the class, available for this night only. “It’s a fun chance for me to play up different seasonal flavors, and use my palate to create a special menu that pairs well wine these spectacular wines,” says Rose. For both class and dinner, tickets are available at $100 per person, for dinner, the cost is $85. The seven-course wine dinner includes creations such as Lobster with ginger butter and a Thai lobster broth paired with ‘Vin Gris De Cigare’ rose, and Seared Foie with cherries and an almond crust paired with ‘A Proper Claret’ blend. Rose’s full menu, created exclusively for the event, can be found online here.
