Paulee Dinner - 2018

The Russian River Valley Winegrowers will host the ultimate winemaker dinner, the Annual Paulée, on August 31st at Sonoma-Cutrer Winery, featuring 26 Russian River Valley Wineries pouring world class Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc.

Fri, August 31, 2018 - 5:00 PM – 8:30 PM PDT

Timed to coincide with Wine Country Weekend, the Paulée will offer guests an unmatched tasting experience in both wine and food. In the spirit of the Paulée tradition, which originated in Burgundy, the Russian River Valley Paulée brings winemakers and collectors together to enjoy an elegant multi-course meal paired with wines from winemakers and guests’ personal cellars, including special, limited and rare vintages. The intimate feast welcomes guests, winemakers and growers to specialties from renowned local chefs and personalities. The truly engaging dining experience includes family style seating which fosters the spirit of community and an ideal format for the shared love of great wine, great food and celebration of friendship, both new and old. Prepare to be wowed by an array of wine personalities, exquisite food and, of course, unforgettable wine!

Each year, the Paulée Dinner brings together discerning wine lovers who celebrate this rare opportunity to mingle with the brilliant minds behind their favorite wines, and also experience wines that are nearly impossible to find. We look forward to continuing to build upon this great tradition from Burgundy, in our own backyard of Sonoma County and in the exquisite setting of the Russian River Valley.
