We gladly rescheduled our February TWITs event, just to meet the legendary winemaker Fred Scherrer, of Scherrer Vineyards in Sonoma, in his first visit to Atlanta. We attended a special wine dinner at Southbound, right down the road from Le Caveau. This was also a sneak peak at the much anticpated Southbound, as the restaurant was not quite open to the general public yet. Chef Matt Marcus prepared a decadent 5 course meal to accompany the wines. The event cost $107 / per person including tax and gratuity.
