Girasole Vineyards Wine Dinner
Wednesday November 4
6:30 PM Prompt

Girasole Vineyards (pronounced jeer-uh-so-lay) organic wines are made from certified organic grapes grown on the rolling bench lands of Redwood Valley in the Mendocino appellation of Northern California. All of the grapes that go into our wines are estate grown, and hand-picked from family owned and operated vineyards that date back to the 1950's. In addition to our organic certification, Girasole wines are also vegan friendly and are grown in GMO-free Mendocino County.

Join us for a fantastic Wine Dinner with Girasole Vineyards and Wine Maker Paul Criger of Mendocino, CA.

The Hospice of the Western Reserve devotes itself to providing palliative end-of-life care, caregiver support, and bereavement services throughout Northern Ohio. Celebrating the individual worth of each person’s life includes providing families with opportunities to share memory-making moments, and that’s what “A Meal to Remember” is all about. Once each month in 2012, one local Cleveland restaurant hosted a dinner for Hospice of the Western Reserve patients and their loved ones at David Simpson Hospice House. In this beautiful setting on the Lake Erie shore, patients and their loved ones can gather around the dinner table to enjoy a truly special meal and create lasting memories. On July 17, 2012 Bistro 185 provided this dinner.
