Please join Chef Nicholas Leiss for a Hudson Valley farm-to-table premium five-course tasting menu accompanied by the exceptional wines of Sonoma’s celebrated Vérité Estate. This memorable dinner will benefit the Jacques Pépin Foundation.
About Vérité Estate:
Since 1998, Vérité Estate has produced Bordeaux blends from some of the best vineyard sites in Sonoma County. The wines are a marriage of old-world expertise and new-world fruit, crafted by 6th generation French winemaker Pierre Seillan along with his daughter and assistant winemaker Hélène Seillan. Pierre and Hélène take the utmost care with every step of the viticultural and winemaking process, working closely to farm each vineyard block precisely. Vérité Estate produces three wines: La Muse, a Merlot-based blend, La Joie, a Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend, and Le Désir, a Cabernet Franc-based blend. Vérité Estate is dedicated to crafting wines without compromise — wines that reflect the terroir in which they are grown. Learn more at www.veritewines.com.
