Bob’s Big Bottle Dinner
Wow! Bob’s Big Dinner as a buy in! What an opportunity. Yes, this is the Big Bottle dinner that we have sold during our live auction for several years at an average of $500 per participant. Yes this is the dinner that pairs wonderful large format wines from Bob and Debby Kweller’s renowned cellar with chef offerings designed to bring out the best in both the food and these beautiful wines. Yes we are selling it this year as a buy in for only $200 per person and we are limiting the number of guests to 30. While the location is still a mystery (but it will be in the Sonoma Valley) the wines (and yes they are all fantastic) are not, and here’s a sampling:
• Double Magnum of Chateau St. jean Chardonnay-Belle Terre Vineyards-2010
Generously sponsored by Rotarian Bob Kweller and Debby Kweller (wines) and Rotarians Ron Lawson and Sam Morphy (food).
