An Adobe Road Wine Dinner Delights in the Connecticut Hills
Here at Adobe Road Winery, we make stellar wines: boutique, small lot, site driven wine, sourced from some of the very best vineyards in Sonoma and Napa counties. It's our attention to detail and reputation that enables us to acquire our fruit from these vineyards and the talent of our winemaker, Garrett Martin guided by the passion of owner Kevin Buckler, that brings exquisite taste to your glass.
Wine is meant to be savored with food. When great wine and food come together with friends and clients, that's when memories are made and it’s what we do so well with Adobe Road Wine Dinners. Our wine dinner experiences are like no other, combining exquisite food and wine with the B2B and networking opportunities only we can deliver on the race track and off during a race weekend.
This is exactly what happened this past Friday evening (part of our race weekend with partners and guests during the IMSA Northeast Grand Prix weekend at Lime Rock Park with sister company The Racers Group) at Winvian Farm in the Litchfield, Connecticut hills. Delectable farm to fork food by award-winning Chef Chris Evans was perfectly paired with our wines over six courses and passed appetizers that wowed our guests. That wow factor is the hallmark of our dinner celebrations.
