Everyone knows that a winemaker is busiest between August and November. But what, do you ask, do winemakers do in the “off-season”? Well, for starters, in the wine business, there is no true off-season, but there is a “non-harvest” season. Richard Sowalsky, winemaker extraordinaire, is out and about during his non-harvest season, zig-zagging across the country and various locations, hosting wine dinners, where he and the chef work side-by-side developing menus to pair with Clos Pegase wines. His travels keep him busy (he’s our own “Where’s Waldo” of the Wine World) but he would love for you to join him if he is in your neck of the woods.
How do you get in on such an event? So glad you asked!
Here’s a few of Richard’s upcoming wine dinners:
June 21; 4pm at Wine Maniacs Bar & Bistro
W359 N5002 Brown Street
Oconomowoc, WI 53066
Cleveland, we’re headed your way!
June 23; 6:30pm at Chez Francois
555 Main Street
We are also a part of the University Hospitals Five-Star Sensation, a Sensational Celebration of food and wine benefiting University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center on June 25. Led by Honorary Chair Chef Wolfgang Puck, this culinary extravaganza is the most unique benefit in Cleveland–and a major source of support for UH Seidman Cancer Center.
If you can’t make a dinner or event, fear not! Richard will be headed out again for another round of wine dinners across the country this summer. Stay tuned for stories from his travels!
