An interactive DINNER WITH WINEMAKER MOLLY BOHLMAN

this five-course winemaker dinner features our best wines from Jespersen ranch and our winemaker’s expertise

This intimate dinner will focus on the past, present and future of our Pinot Noir program. We farm 33 acres of Pinot Noir at Jespersen Ranch in the Edna Valley and the tasting menu will be specifically curated to highlight the unique qualities we find in this cool, fog-laden site. Guests will be greeted with a reception of passed appetizers and magnum wine service before moving to the Craft Winery for dinner. NINER Executive Chef Chris Closser and Winemaker Molly Bohlman worked together to create an unforgettable night of food and wine pairings designed to compliment some of Molly's favorite wines from our current portfolio and library. 

Winemaker Molly Bohlman will guide you through each course and explain vintage differences, winemaking techniques and pairing rationale while answering any questions that you have. We design these nights to be open-format and highly encourage questions and discussion! This is your chance to get to know the people who are making your food and wine and seating is limited.
