The Met and Master Sommelier Thomas Price are thrilled to welcome in Mr. Ben Smith of Cadence Winery, Seattle Magazine’s reigning winemaker of the year, for its third Winemaker’s Dinner Event in the 2013 series.
Master Sommelier Thomas Price is delighted to share these amazing wines with The Met dinner guests. “Ben Smith has been crafting some of Washington’s most powerful, precise and polished wines for years, and it is going to be an amazing evening. Ben focuses on Bordeaux varietals from top vineyard sites on Red Mountain, and the wines that he is bringing to share are amazing!” said Price.
