What is a Wine Dinner and Why Should You Attend?
Each month, Almost Home puts on a Signature Wine Dinner; an evening full of fun and perfectly paired foods and wine selections. Often times, they have a theme or center on the time of year. These dinners truly are a great way to learn about wine, get downtown (or to other cool locations), and enjoy the company of friends. We’ve had Mardi Gras wine dinners, Valentine’s Day wine dinners, and even a wine dinner on Mike & Holly Martellaro’s farm, which was such a hit that we’re having another one Thursday, September 14, 2017! (That’s this Thursday).
Photos from our 2017 Fall Wine Dinner
This wine dinner was held in September 2017 at Mike & Holly Martellaro’s Farm.
This is a wonderful setting, off the beaten path and in the woods near a handcrafted log structure, complete with a camp fire and more. Since it’s on the farm, casual attire is recommended.
Chef Troy always puts together an amazing four-course dinner, all paired with wines selected just for this dinner!
Here are few photos from one of our past Wine Dinners on The Farm.

This article is to give you an idea of what a wine dinner at Almost Home is like, so please, read on!
First, Check Out the Menu & Reserve Your Seats
- Make your reservations, or purchase tickets online.
- Review the menu for the wine dinner, which is posted on our website and on our Facebook page, to get an idea of what to expect.
- Depending on the style of the dinner and the wines and foods chosen, prices will vary each month. We’ve made it simple, though, and you can buy tickets for wine dinners directly on our website (for the September 14th dinner, buy yours here)!
Then, Prepare to Have a Great Evening & Make New Friends
Once you’ve made your reservation, get ready for a fabulous evening with friends at Almost Home! Whether the dinner is set to take place in the restaurant or at another destination, like the farm, it’s a night full of good conversation and delicious food. What begins with some mingling quickly goes straight into the first course of the evening. On the farm, everyone will be seated at a beautiful long table outdoors; the perfect setting to enjoy an autumn-themed meal!
Learn About Wine in A Fun Atmosphere
The cool thing about our wine dinners is that at each event, someone will be there to explain the details about the wine and food pairings! It’s an awesome way to understand a little bit more about wine, how it’s made, and why it goes with certain foods. It really adds an element of fun to the evening and can certainly serve as talking points the next time you grab a drink with friends!
As the night continues, you’re served each course and poured a glass of the wine selected to pair with the food. It’s a very laidback setting, and one where you can spend time with loved ones and friends, talking, laughing, and enjoying a perfect evening. What’s better, at most wine dinners, you have the option to purchase bottles of any of your favorite wines you enjoy throughout the evening! It truly is a special experience.
So, take a look at the menu for the September 14th Wine Dinner on the Farm, and we will see you there! If you want to be sure to get information about our Wine Dinners and other events, be sure to join our email list or follow us on Facebook.
And remember, while wine dinners might sound intimidating, it’s still just smooshed grapes!
