Old Village Post House to host a Spanish wine dinner featuring Enate Winery

The Old Village Post House will be combining the art of our food preparation and the art of winemaking at a Spanish Wine Dinner featuring Enate Winery on Thursday, October 28th.

Executive Chef Frank Lee and Chef de Cusine Jim Walker have created a six-course menu of the cuisine of Spain with pairings by Wine and Beverage Director Patrick Emerson.

Winemakers and wine lovers know there is an art to wine making. Enate Winery of Salas Bajas, Spain celebrates the arts – both in the bottle and on the label. With grapes grown at the foot of the Pyrenees Mountains, the winery produces a mixture of white, red and rosé wines.

Through the EnArte program, Enate Winery commissions works from established and new artists to adorn its wine bottles. Additionally, the winery is a patron of the arts by collecting Old Masters works and supporting new artists through its Enate Award young artist competition.

The dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. with a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception. Reservations are required and can be made by calling (843) 388-8935. The cost of the dinner is $66 per person plus tax and gratuity.
