You will also have the opportunity to taste a variety of wines Chef Marcus has chosen to pair with his food courses. Then you may elect to buy a bottle for you and your friends to share of your favorite.

“When asked why local sourcing is such a hot topic today – “There is an emotional connection to food. The consumer in the past had no idea where the food they were consuming came from or how it was raised or picked. Today this is changing. People are asking questions about food sources. There is a "high" from connecting with food – sharing and having nourishing conversations about food" - Executive Chef Marcus RepTaste of Blue Ridge Top Chefs at BRRT Launch Party
