Midway Mercantile

June 23rd

Ronsel do Sil wines will be the muse for this paired dinner at the Midway chef-driven restaurant. The business writes, ” Fate brings a second wonderful Spanish wine dinner our way in one week. The first is sold out, but we still have spaces left for this extraordinary evening. Our host is the charismatic Enriqueta Yravedra, whose family lives
in a small town in northwest Spain, where they live alongside a gorgeous river and grow native grapes – most of which we have never heard of before – and make astonishingly flavorful wines.

And the even more real hook is that Enriqueta is a concert pianist and professor of piano in NYC, and she
will be playing a concert while also taking us through her family’s wines, all the while John and his team will be
cooking course after course of dynamic pairings. This one has a higher price tag to compensate our
entertainer along with our usual wine and food pairings. We expect a 4+ hour evening with an early start at 5
pm. Hope you can join us!”

Cost is $61 for food, and $85 for wine pairings.
