6:30 - 7 pm  |  Champagne Mingling & Cheese Nibbles

7:00 pm |  5-Course Dinner


Join Vino Locale for our annual Winemaker Dinner & Meet the Winemaker! We welcome the winemaker, Nathan Kandler, from Lexington Wines and the proprietors, Dave & Stacey Golnick, from Mindego Ridge Winery.

Nathan Kandler has extensive experience in winemaking. Nathan got his start at Testarossa winery and later worked for famed Australian-producer Torbreck. He joined the Fogarty team in 2004 and officially became Winemaker in 2012 - overseeing the Thomas Fogarty, Lexington & Skyline projects. He is committed to the idea that wines should have a sense of place and his wines reflect the unique terroir of the Santa Cruz Mtns. The Mindego Ridge wines follow the same philosophy. Winemaker Ehren Jordan, former Winemaker at Turley and the owner & Winemaker at Failla, saw the site for Mindego Ridge, he immediately saw huge potential for unique, site specific Pinot Noir & Chardonnay. Both of these winemakers have elevated the status of Santa Cruz Mountain wine by their dedication to the land, the fruit and the belief that great wine is first made in the vineyard. We are very excited that proprietors at Mindego Ridge Winery, Dave & Stacey Golnick, will be at the dinner on behalf of Ehren Jordan, who will be in the middle of harvest at Failla.


Live music from the jazz duo, acoustic guitarist, Bill Murphy, and bassist, Charlie Channel.
