Seattle-Sherry Dinner with Karla Kilgore
The Seattle Chapter of Women For WineSense
Invites You To Experience
A Sherry Dinner
with Karla Kilgore of Classical Wines
Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014, 6:30pm
2207 2nd Avenue
Get ready for a unique taste experience with Women For WineSense! Karla Kilgore, of Classical Wines, is partnering with Pintxo restaurant to bring us a multi-course Sherry pairing dinner, featuring Bodegas Hidalgo-La Gitana Sherries. The history of Sherry goes back over 3,000 years, when the vines for the grapes were brought to the Jerez region of southwest Spain by the early Phoenicians. In the centuries that followed, empires and civilizations, kings and merchants influenced its development. But Karla's inspiration in bringing us this event was a recent milestone in the recognition for this ancient beverage. For the first time, Wine Spectator Magazine included a Sherry in their top 100 list, coming in at #32. We thank her for giving us this opportunity!
Pintxo is the perfect spot to host our dinner. This small, family owned restaurant is dedicated to creating Spanish inspired tapas from locally sourced ingredients. The menu they designed for us highlights the bright, vibrant flavors of their cuisine. Perfectly paired with a selection of Sherries from Karla's collection, the dinner promises to give us a rare chance to step out of the usual and experiment for an evening!
