About The Event
Join Savannah's very own Ms.Kris Allred as she tours through one of the most beautiful regions in North America. In July we'll head to one of the most scenic places to drink the best Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Chardonnay's being produced in the USA and some would say the world! Not to worry if wine isn't your game. The food, laughs, Kris's lively banter and knowledge of weather will be the perfect pairing for this journey. With advanced 5 star sommelier Heath Porter in tow we'll get up close and personal with the region’s best winemakers, owners and chefs. There will be talk of weather patterns, and how the sea, sun, climate and aspect influence the grapes, vines and local produce. The real story of this journey will be the comradery we enjoy as a group in a laid back, high end travel experience like no other.
