Our fall dinner series is “falling into place” and JAR is one of LA’s great dining destinations…. So they are dinner number 1!  

August 2nd – LearnAboutWine returns to this fantastic restaurant for another extraordinary effort – a blind tasting of 100 point wines with a 5-course dinner.  The 100 Point Dinner features 21 wines between 100 and 98  points and will be paired with a 5 course dinner. All wines will be tasted blind, 3 at a time and revealed after guests vote for their favorites!  The question is – which 100 point wine did they prefer?  Where is it from and can you guess which wine it is?  Take advantage of this rare opportunity to taste “perfect” wines side by side with a delicious dinner prepared by the iconic Jar Chef/Owner Suzanne Tracht. This event is limited so get tickets here before they sell out!  We take a $100 deposit and then post the final payment when the dinner has enough support.
