Our 5th Annual 100 Point and Cult Wine Dinner will be held Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 5 o’clock in the evening at the waterfront horse farm of Laurie and Taylor Hood. The “Sea to Table” evening features a 5-course dinner prepared by Chef Nikhil Abuvala of Roux 30a, paired with unique 100 Point and Cult wines.

Four Course Dinner
Prepared by Chef Nikhil Abuvala of Roux 30A
Your dinner experience begins in a beautiful tent on the grounds of the Hood’s waterfront horse farm on Alaqua Bayou. Chef and Owner Nikhil Abuvala of Roux 30A will meticulously prepare a delectable four-course dinner fresh from the sea to your table.

Dessert with Chocolate Sommelier Sophia Rea
We are excited to also announce our dessert course will be presented by the United States’ only chocolate sommelier, Sophia Rea of Projet Chocolat. A former chef to entertainers and celebrities, Sophia will join us to celebrate the pleasure of tasting chocolate, rather than merely eating it.
