Louis M Martini Winery Dinner with Master Winemaker Michael Martini
WineAlign is pleased to present a gourmet dinner with Master Winemaker Michael Martini on Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014.
Join third generation winemaker and Napa Valley Icon Michael Martini as he presents a selection of exclusive wines from his family winery the Louis M Martini Winery, celebrating over 80 years in the Napa Valley. Mike Martini grew up in his father and grandfather’s vineyards, learning first-hand what it takes to make world-class wines. When he wasn’t in school in rural St. Helena, he was working at the winery, in the vineyard, or out riding horses.
Today, St. Helena has grown up, and so has Mike but he still gets up every day to make Cabernet Sauvignon that will make his family proud. This dinner will be all about CABERNET SAUVIGNON!! We will showcase Napa and Sonoma Cab’s including two wines that are exclusive to this dinner and the very small production Lot 1.
Michael will be joined by WineAlign’s John Szabo.

pangaea (pan-gee-ahhh!) is the acclaimed Yorkville restaurant named after the super continent that existed on earth 250 million years ago before the tectonic plates separated to form the land masses on world maps today. Pangaea Restaurant co-owners Peter Geary and Martin Kouprie chose this tricky to spell name because it evokes what they want their restaurant to be: a place where international inspiration and regional ingredients come together to form a unique and wonderful dining concept.
A success since 1996, Pangaea Restaurant continues to be faithful to this original goal. Today, as on the first day our door swung open on to Bay Street, Peter and Martin ensure that Pangaea Restaurant is a place where people can come to experience the best food and service Toronto has to offer. At Toronto’s Pangaea Restaurant plates do indeed move twice a day; but, instead of continental plates, china plates artfully topped with delectable regional cuisine are the ones traveling.
Our winemaker events have been consistently and quickly selling out. If you are interested in attending then we advise you to purchase your tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
