Pork & Pinot Wine Lunch at The Grand Richmond – July 5, 2015
PORK & PINOT
Is there any better food-wine combination?
The salty and fatty goodness of pork prepared several different ways. Combined with the refreshing and berry-rich taste of Pinot Noir.
On Sunday July 5, 2015 , 36 people had the privileged opportunity to enjoy a feast of both PORK & PINOT amidst the awesome beauty of The Grand Richmond.
The award-winning dining room of The Grand serves up chef-inspired dishes that invite all of your senses. Naturally, this Pork & Pinot Wine Lunch was no different.
