Event: Pepper Bridge Wine Dinner Thursday August 22nd at 6PM

Metropolitan Grill and Master Sommelier Thomas Price are delighted to welcome Jean-François Pellet, Winemaker and Partner at Pepper Bridge Winery and sister winery, Amavi Cellars.

“Jean-François Pellet is one of the best winemakers and vineyard managers in the country, with a stint at Heitz Cellars in Napa, among others, before deciding to settle in Walla Walla,” said Price. “The 2007 Reserve is my favorite Washington Wine right now, it needs to be tried to be believed!”
