Chef’s Dinner ft Verterra Winery // May 11

Chef’s Dinner featuring Verterra Winery & Paul Hamelin / Thursday / May 11, 2017 / 6:30pm

Celebrate Michigan Wine Month with The Rattlesnake! We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Paul Hamelin and Verterra Winery of Leelanau to Detroit! Paul’s wines are definitely some of Michigan’s very best, his tasting room in downtown Leland (right across from historic Fishtown!!) is a must-stop on every northern Michigan winery tour and, basically, he’s just the nicest guy! Verterra Winery’s goals are simple – plant proven varietals, clones & rootstocks in the right soil, in the right vineyards, to makes wines people like. And they hit it out of the park consistently – their Rose of Cabernet Franc won “Best in Class” at the 2016 Michigan Wine Competition and their Pinot Blanc and Unoaked Chardonnay both took home gold medals as well! If you’re a wine lover – especially a Michigan wine lover – if you don’t know what Michigan wine is really all about or if you’re new to Michigan’s wines, this event is for you! You’ll savor six of Verterra’s finest wines paired with six of Chef Chris’s innovative small plates while enjoying Paul’s lively descriptions of his wines along with a few of his best stories, too.
