This past weekend, we had the pleasure of providing wine for two supper club events with Chef Peter and the team behind Culinary Hedonism. The setting was gorgeous, the food spectacular, and the guests entertaining. Record family member and talented photographer, Sara, was on hand to capture the dining experience.
The menu: Head Chef Peter and Sous Chef Stephanie created a special menu made up of fresh, locally sourced ingredients to pair with a line up of Record Family Wines.

We enjoyed dining with 14 guests each night, al fresco, in an intimate setting. The conversation was an added bonus to an evening filled with amazing food and wine!
We are so proud of our award winning red wines, but when we saw the weather forecast last month for an event we were attending, we realized we had an opportunity to showcase another wine while pouring at Sunset’s SAVOR the Central Coast.
Summer just doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon, so stock up on our Grenache Rosé on special for just $10.80 / bottle and enjoy some sangria while waiting for cooler weather to arrive!
