Daring Duo Wine & Food Paring Pratick Will of Vintus & Brett Knipmeyer of Kinley’s

Author: Mike  //  Category: Wine

Dear Oenophile
These gentlemen are some of the best in the business. Brett over at Kinley’s is known to most of you. As Chef/Owner he has pushed the boundaries of cuisine in Anchorage. Patrick Will is more behind the scenes. It was his company that first brought Guigal to this country. All of his wineries are artisanal quality, dirt to bottle, family owned estates. Patrick knows the families and has lived in the areas of production. His portfolio is quite simply, amazing! I could rattle on but suffice it to say this is adon’t miss experience. It’s just giving me goose bumps.If that didn’t convince you check out the menu!
Reservations are $95 per person gratuity included. All reservations are to be made through the Anchorage Wine House. Time and date are 6 PM Wednesday on April 3rd. email mike@anchoragewinehouse.com or phone 907 677 9050.
