Orin Swift Wine Dinner

This is the one we've all been waiting for!

Join us at Blood & Sand on Thursday, August 23 at 6:30 p.m. for a dinner featuring Orin Swift wines. If you're not familiar with Dave Phinney or the Orin Swift Cellars line of wines, we intend to change that. Dave is a world-renowned winemaker who indeed makes wines around the world. Sommelier Shelley Hall will be here to acquaint you with these great California selections.  If you're presently aware of Orin Swift, come learn more and delight in a concordance of food and drink.

Each wine will be paired with a dish that it compliments. Chef and I have put our heads and our palates together. We tasted the wines zealously, determined to do them justice. We took into consideration every aroma, flavor, and nuance, so that the wine and food enhance each other. We conceptualized for an hour; then he was off to prepare the menu. It will be released tomorrow.

The featured Orin Swift wines include: 

2014 "Mannequin" Chardonnay, CA, 92 RP

2016 "Abstract" Grenache/Syrah/Petite Sirah, CA, 92 RP

2015 "Palermo" Cabernet Sauvignon/Malbec/Merlot, Napa Valley, 91 RP

2015 "Papillon" Bordeaux Blend, Napa Valley, 94 RP

2017 "Blank Stare" Sauvignon Blanc, Russian River Valley, TBD

If you could attend only one wine event at Blood & Sand, this should be the one! Don't miss out. The wines will be available for retail purchase after dinner. Stock your cellar or cabinet or that weird cubby hole under the counter that nothing else seems to fit in.

This one will fill up fast, so don't lumber. The price is $110 per guest. To reserve, call Blood & Sand at 314-241-7263 or email

Cheers! See you there.

Nick Viehman, Wine Director
Brian Coltrain, Executive Chef
