Chef Denny Trantham
Chef Denny Trantham and Wine Expert Kevin Schwartz, both long-time revolutionary presences at the Grove Park Inn, will be joining forces for a luxurious French-style réveillon, each dish corresponding with a sigh for the year behind and a wish for the year ahead, in the exclusive tenth floor suite at the Hotel Indigo.

From 8pm till midnight, ten courses will be served, along with five exceptional wines, to the musical illustrations of celebrated jazz vibraphonist Paul Babelay. A spectacular view of Asheville will stretch out below you and if you register on or before Christmas Eve, you will have the possibility, through a one-time drawing, of staying in the suite when the party is over.

The cost is $150, payable on EventBrite, and benefits will go towards creating a scholarship for 12-21 year old youths seeking culinary and taste education. The number of spaces is limited, so reserve quickly! For further information, visit www.ashevillewineexperience, or contact ashevillewineexperience@gmail.com 828-301-2792 / 828-777-8916.
