The 100 Point Dinner at JAR Restaurant
Wednesday, March 2nd @ 6:45 pm PST
After selling out the Cabernet dinner on Feb 1st at JAR, LearnAboutWine is returning to this fantastic restaurant for another extraordinary effort. On Thursday, March 2nd, they will host The 100 Point Dinner. 15 of the 21+ wines score at 100 points (the rest are 98-99 points) and will be paired with dinner at one of LA’s best steakhouses. All wines will be tasted blind, 3 at a time and revealed after guests vote for their favorites and at which 100 point wine they tasted. This event is “F” Fantastic - “F”ast, “F”un, and “F”ascinating! Take advantage of this rare opportunity to taste “perfect” wines side by side with a delicious dinner prepared by the iconic Jar Chef/Owner Suzanne Tracht. This event is limited so get tickets here before they sell out!
