DW | France vs. USA: Head-to-Head Wine Dinner with James Corbin

Wine Regions Head-to-Head!

France vs. the USA Wine Dinner with James Corbin 

Nearly every style of wine we enjoy today has some sort of beginning in the nation of France. From the way we talk about wine to the grapes themselves, it’s clear that France has led the way for centuries. But is this dominance of the world of wine just a thing of the past? Hasn’t American wine more than distinguished itself over the last half century?

Join us at Foxcroft DILWORTH for a night of head-to-head comparisons and contrasts, led by our great friend James Corbin, now of Orsini Wines. James is the perfect guide to give you the background and context for comparing styles and terroir of 8 wines over 4 courses.

May the best wine (region) win!

Check back soon for a multi-course menu from chef Brian Lombard!
