Wine Tastings in the Courtyard


WINE TASTINGS IN THE PRIORY COURTYARD ARE HERE!

Join us for a series of special wine tasting events in The Priory Hotel’s historic courtyard, beginning this May! Each month features a different theme with a different wine host – a local or national wine expert. Wine will be paired with light hors d’oeuvres created by the Priory’s Executive Chefs Michael Henney and Peter Phillipy.

The tastings will occur the third Thursday of each month, starting at 6:00 p.m. and ending at approximately 8:00 p.m., with four wines to taste. Our first tasting is set for Thursday, May 21, 2009. Ticket price for all tastings will be $45.00 per person.
