October 20: KNAPP WINERY & VINEYARD RESTAURANT, Cruisin with Columbus Wine Dinner
We all know the facts- Christopher Columbus discovered the New World in 1492. His ships were called the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria, and he sailed for Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand under the Spanish flag. But where did he actually travel from and where did he land? Research tells us he left Spain and landed in San Salvador on his first voyage. Determined to find the new route to the West Indies he made several other voyages, landing in Marie Galante (Caribbean Sea Island), Cap. Hatien (Haiti), St. Anne's Bay (Jamaica), Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic), and the Bay Islands of Central America (Honduras). This wine dinner promises to be an old world adventure as our chef takes us to those ports of call through a five-course wine dinner. Each course will be paired with premium Knapp Winery, Zugibe Vineyards and Glenora Wine Cellars wines. 6:30pm --We start with a sparkling wine reception. Order tickets online while checking out the menu. www.knappwine.com
