Wine dinner with Schramsberg

If you love Schramsberg sparkling wines as much as me, then you'll be as stoked as I was to hear about the upcoming dinner at Cafe Atlantico that pairs the restaurant's dishes with Schramsberg's sparklers:

On the evening of Tuesday, May 20th, Café Atlantico and sommelier Jill Zimorski will welcome Schramsberg Vineyards and Cellars’ Hugh Davies for an exclusive wine dinner showcasing their celebrated sparkling wines. Guests of this exclusive wine dinner will be treated to a selection of bubbly from the Calistoga-based vineyard paired with an innovative four-course menu by Chef Katsuya Fukushima. Space is limited and reservations are required. The dinner is priced at $125 per person, excluding including tax and gratuity. (A complete menu is posted below.) To reserve guests should call Café Atlantico at (202) 393-0812.
