Dallas, TX, September 19, 2013

The Fairmont Dallas is pleased to announce an intimate evening hosted by Nobilo winemaker David Edmonds on Thursday, October 10th. Guests are invited to partake in a tasting of New Zealand wines complemented by a four-course dinner developed through a close collaboration between Mr. Edmonds and Executive Chef Brian Armstrong.

A native of Wellington, New Zealand, Mr. Edmonds attended Christchurch’s Lincoln University, receiving a degree in horticulture science. In 2002, he joined Nobilo Wines, bringing an extensive knowledge of the country’s wine growing regions and a passion for Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc in particular.     

“We discussed specific flavor notes and each course in-depth to select pairings that are both complimentary and unique,” said Chef Armstrong. “I was greatly inspired by the variety of coastal vineyards in New Zealand and the history behind the Nobilo brand.” 

Tickets are available for $125 per person, inclusive of tax and service charges. Reception begins at 6:00pm followed by dinner at 6:30pm. Complimentary valet parking will be provided. To RSVP, please call 214.720.5263 or contact Availability is limited.
