Principals from four wineries in the Napa Valley welcomed an intimate crowd at Rush in Calgary at the Napa Valley Vintners Dinner. Executive Chef at Rush Dave Bohati created a five course (not pictured braised osso bucco) menu to pair with wines from Miner Valley Winery, Hall, Cain Vineyard and Winery, and Larking Wines.

It was a lovely evening, punctuated with sounds of clinking glasses and spirited conversation.
Toast to the Napa Valley.
