Spanish Wine Dinner
We will be joined by our dear friend, Holly Wing of DeMaison Selections. DeMaison is a boutique importer, best known for its impeccable lineup of Spanish wines. They have a carefully curated list of small-scale, honest-to-goodness producers who would sooner cut off their right arm than cut corners on quality. Chef Ruiz has created a bespoke menu of Spanish dishes intended to harmonize beautifully with the wines being featured.
