Tuesday, June 6: Wine dinner with Robert Biale Vineyards

24 May

We love working with Robert Biale’s stunning Napa Zinfandel and Petite Sirah–the wines are awesome and they’re unapologetically old-school Napa. They’ve been making wine their way since before the Valley turned into an endless procession of tour buses and $50 million tasting rooms, and they’ll be doing the same long down the road. Join us for a special dinner at Satchel’s on June 6 featuring a cross-section of the Biale lineup, including their extremely limited, winery-only (usually) rosato! Tuesday, June 6. 6pm. $75/per. RSVP: 303.399.2560.

Nibbles will be provided by the talented kitchen staff at Café Marmotte, and we encourage everyone to book dinner reservations following the tasting, when you’ll be able to purchase wines featured during the tasting to enjoy with your meal at special one-night-only savings!
