January wining and dining

The Cabernet Sauvignon will be flowing at Hereford House on Thursday.

Two wine dinners are coming up, and both have my Monday morning taste buds on high alert.

One is an event scheduled for Thursday at Hereford House, inside the Terradyne Country Club in Andover and put on by the Wichita chapter of the American Institute of Wine & Food. 

The event will feature Casidy Ward from the Hidden Ridge Vineyard, who will pour the vineyard’s well-regarded Cabernet Sauvignon, along with several other wines. The event also will feature a four-course meal plus appetizers and dessert.

It’s $7o for AIWF members and $85 for non-members. Call 316-682-5502 for reservations and information.

Oeno Wine Bar at 330 N. Mead also is planning a wine tasting called “Indulge” and scheduled for Jan. 26. It’s $35 a person and features a three-course tasting, each course paired with wine, plus dessert. For reservations, call 316-440-5000.
