As a sommelier, I first became aware of St Francis wines about twenty years ago and about that time we began to feature the wines at The Woodlawn Inn. St Francis Winery and Vineyards from Sonoma County California is a family owned winery that started in 1975 and today has Certified California Sustainable Winegrower accreditation. In our dining room, the wines have consistently provided an approachable, generous, and crowd pleasing style that made a perfect match for our cuisine at The Woodlawn Inn.
After learning about the team at the winery, I discovered that there are some wonderfully talented and committed people there and this holds true to the people that share the St Francis story with us! This brings us to Michael Adamczyk. Michael represents St Francis Winery in Upper State New York and Canada. I met him last year and was so impressed with his knowledge and enthusiasm that I asked if he would lead a wine tasting dinner for us.
Michael agreed and our wine tasting dinner will be held on Tuesday, May 8th at The Woodlawn Inn. The evening consists of a reception with wines and hors d'oeuvres to be followed with a creative five-course dinner with a St Francis wine to match with each course. We hope you can join us for this rare, local opportunity to try some of the St Francis winery portfolio, enjoy fine food and great conversation. I have been proud to serve St Francis wines at The Woodlawn Inn and I know you will enjoy them as much as I do.
