Meet Master Sommelier Larry Stone and Sip Some Excellent Wine at Bailey’s Prime Plus Dinner January 19

Even if you think you know a lot about wine, you don’t. At least not as much as Larry Stone. See, Stone is a master sommelier, which means he knows more than you and me and your best friend with the 1,000 bottle collection under his staircase. So when Stone says we should be drinking wine from Evening Land Vineyards (where he’s the president), you should believe him.

Still skeptical? Why not see what all the fuss is about–he’ll be hosting a wine dinner at Bailey’s Prime Plus in Dallas on January 19. There, you can sip a glass or two of his Pinots or Chardonnays (the grapes are grown in SoCal, Oregon and Burgundy), which will be poured by Bailey’s super sommelier, Jennifer Jaco, and paired with a meal from Grant Morgan, Bailey’s chef. (Plus, you’ll probably get to meet blogger Andrew Chalk, who loves wine as much as you do but still not as much as Larry Stone does.) The whole thing costs $75, plus tax and tip. 7pm.
