Wine Dinner with Chef John Toler

Hello everyone,

I'm thrilled to announce that the bistro has an opportunity to host a dinner with one of my all-time favorite wineries. On Wednesday, November 15th, I have the honor of pairing my food with the wines of Reynolds Family Winery. The big man himself, Steve Reynolds, will be here to lead the festivities. His jump into the wine business began in earnest in 1995 when an old chicken ranch on Silverado Trail became available. The first wines were made in 1999 and were well-received so Steve decided it was time to make a business of it. That's when Steve decided to give up his dental practice to operate the winery full time.

The two of us will lead you on a gastronomic journey. Basically, I'll do all the cooking, and Steve will do all the talking. Steve has an interesting way of kicking off all of his wine dinners. I'm not telling what that is, but let's just say it starts the meal off on a good vibe! The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. when we will enjoy a few small bites with a glass of his 2015 Napa Valley Chardonnay. Then we will work our way through four different wines culminating with a glass of 2010 "Naughty Sticky." I feel certain that I have put together a menu that will work well with these wines. Come on out to see for yourself why Steve's wines and my food are a match made in heaven.

In keeping with the bistro's wine dinner traditions, Steve will be offering these bottles for sale directly from California. That means you will have an opportunity to stock your cellars at prices you can't beat anywhere else, I guarantee that!

This event will fill up quickly, so please call the Bistro soon if you would like to come and be a part of this special evening of food and fine wine. Seating is on a first come first served basis, so please arrive at 6:30 proper if you wish to get a seat alongside your friends. If you have a group of 8 or more people who wish to eat together, we can reserve a private table for you all. Please, you must let us know when you call if you intend to reserve your own table. We will also need the names of all your friends joining you.

Thank you for allowing me to cook for you over the last 23 years,
Bon Appétit,
John
