Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley, the highly acclaimed fine art, design, and wine tasting gallery located in Yountville, introduces an alfresco dining option with, “The Artist’s Palette” Dining Experience. From May until November 2011, the series will offer vintner-hosted dinners featuring limited-production wines paired with small courses customized by chef, Cindy Pawlcyn. An extraordinary opportunity to mingle and dine with highly regarded vintners and purchase allocated wines, the series will also merge fine art with a curated gallery reception prior to dinner.
