Merry Edwards Virtual Wine Dinner

logo MerryEdwards WineryMerry Edwards Virtual Build Your Own Wine Dinner!

Saturday, May 16, 7:00pm
In your home!

Right now we all need something to look forward to...
how about a virtual Merry Edwards Dinner!?

It also makes a wonderful Mother's Day Gift!

We have devised a way for you to enjoy a spectacular WineSellar & Brasserie Wine Dinner with the wines of Merry Edwards: in your home!

With guest speakers Heidi von der Mehden, Merry Edwards Winemaker, Brown Uzoechi, Merry Edwards Estate Sommelier, and Kim Knoell, their Regional Sales Manager.

The meal will be accompanied by as many of the offered selections of wine you choose from. The first two wines that come with the “kit” can be half or full bottles, your choice. The vineyard designates will be in our special 4 ounce bottles with the airtight phenolic seals. You can have all five of them with your dinner, or one, etc. You can share the 4-ounce pour, or order one per person.

Best of all, the wines are offered to you here are all at retail pricing, not restaurant pricing!

The food is quite simple for you to prepare at home, and come with easy instructions.
You will combine ingredients of the Tartare, warm up the Onion Soup, Heat the already cooked duck, and use warm / hot water bath for the rest of it.
