The event, now in its 16th year, includes an elegant multi-course dinner featuring wines carefully chosen to complement each course. Wine expert Christina Morris Thornton, of Winesellers Ltd. and The Country Vintner, will preside over the dinner, explaining the history and characteristics of the various wines served. The wines will come from the Inn's award-winning wine list, which contains over 600 different labels.
