Prelude event logo

We invite lovers of wine to attend a 2017-2018 Prelude evening, which will culminate in the 16th annual First Press Fine Wine Dinner & Auction in the spring of 2018.

At our gourmet dinners, Italian chef Gabriele Bertaccini will craft for public radio listeners a wine-paired, five-course meal around the cuisine of a single region of Italy.

At our wine-tasting events, dozens of public radio listeners will enjoy some exceptional wines from around the world that will be paired with delicious hors d’oeuvres or artisanal cheeses.
