An interactive tasting with one of the best professional taster's in the world.

Join us for an unforgettable evening of food and wine led by Master Sommelier Dustin Wilson, star of the documentary 'Somm,' Wine Director of three star Michelin rated Eleven Madison Park and co-founder of Vallin wines.

Dustin Wilson is one of the world's best professional wine tasters. His knowledge of wine is mind blowing and he is a sheer genius at what he does. In 2011, he became the 107th person in the world to pass the rigorous Master Sommelier exam. In 2013, he was seen on the big screen as one of four subjects in a highly regarded wine documentary titled SOMM.  He is currently gearing up for the premiere of the sequel, SOMM 2, which will be released later this year.

In 2012, Dustin co-founded Vallin, a Santa Barbara-based winery that focuses on producing elegant, balanced Rhône grape varieties. At the helm of this estate is one of the hottest up and coming winemakers in California, Justin Willett, whose own label Tyler is on fire and tantalizing the critics.

During this special evening, Dustin will guide us through his wines, and bring on some heavy competition from some of the brightest stars in the Rhone valley as well! You will learn to taste like a Master Sommelier in-training!
