Purple Onion Cafe Joseph Phelps Wine Dinner
Wednesday, November 7, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM (PST)
We have invited Will Phelps, grandson of one of our favorite winemakers Joseph Phelps, of Joseph Phelps Vineyards to host a very special wine tasting dinner at the Purple Onion Cafe. Joseph Phelps Vineyards is a family-owned winery committed to crafting world class, estate-grown wines.
The six course dinner, served family style, will celebrate the bounty of the Fall season with accompanying wine pairings. Our chefs will also be creating a Southern holiday favorite...turducken (it is a chicken, stuffed in a duck, stuffed in a turkey). If you have never experienced cajun Chef Paul Prudhomme’s infamous creation now is your chance. (Paul would't recognize this tasty version but he would approve)
