4:00-7:00 pm PST November 20, 2021

Our second Virtual Wine & Dine will get your creative juices flowing for the upcoming festive season. Jonah will be dabling in some creative takes on holiday classics, while Sheldon and Alex will help us expand our wine knowledge playing with some essential Merlot pairings. 

 

     Jonah brings 20 years of cooking experience to the virtual dinner table. From humble steakhouse beginnings to West Coast California adventures, Jonah now finds himself deeply immersed in the seasonal cuisine of Vancouver, British Colombia.   

Sheldon has been involved in the vineyard since his parents, Jim & Barbara Richards, first bought the land back in 1983. He helped clear the trees and collect the stones to make room for the vineyard you know as Paloma. He learned first-hand how to cultivate a great grape from his mother and how to turn those grapes into top tier Napa Valley wine from his father. Now the owner, winemaker & tasting room specialist, Sheldon does it all. If you have ever done a tasting with him, you know you are in for a treat with this event!

2013 Merlot: "This is a strong effort from Paloma that has made its reputation for ripe, sexy, full-bodied Merlots. This wine exhibits plenty of plum, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, mocha and coffee bean in a lush, delicious and opulently textured style. It is drinking beautifully already and will continue to evolve for another decade or more." - Robert Parker, 93 Points
