Wine & Food Pairing with Pizzeria Basta 1/20/11

BookCliff Vineyards will be pairing up with local chefs over the first few months of 2011 to bring you three food and wine pairing events. The events will be held at the winery where the chefs will prepare a meal to pair with a selection of our wines. Seating will be limited so that there is an opportunity to interact with the chef and the wine maker. So not only will you get some great food and wine, but you will have fun learning some new things about cooking and wine. Each event is $60 per person which includes the wine and food. For reservations call 303-499-7301. Tickets are still available for the 1/20 and 3/31 dinners, but make sure to call soon and reserve a spot!
