What Is The Difference Between Reception, Dinner and Seminar?

Receptions are “walk-around” style events featuring over 40 wines of a particular theme along with food buffets with dishes created by Chef Bruce to enhance the wines. Dinners are intimate four-course dinners hosted by either the winemaker or winery owner. In some case, there is a seminar preceding the dinner. This depends on how many wines the winemaker is presenting and typically lasts an hour prior to the dinner. Themes for seminars have included barrel samples, vertical tastings, horizontal tastings and blends.
