Chilean Wine Dinner with Kingston Family Vineyards

Back again: Lemon Tree Grocer & Zest’s famous wine dinners. If you haven’t been to one yet, you need to get your butt here. If you have; well you don’t want to miss this one.

Kingston Family Vineyards will be the host of this month’s intimate wine dinner, and it’s approaching faster than you can imagine. Next Tuesday Courtney Kingston will greet all our dinner guests promptly at 6:45 pm, and after that the event commences!

A bit about the Kingston Family: The Kingston Family first came to Chile in the early 1900’s. Carl John Kingston, the patriarch and pioneer, came to Chile looking for copper (good idea) and gold (crazy idea). “Gramps” Kingston was an American originally from Central Mine, Michigan, which exists only as a ghost town today in Michigan’s upper peninsula.The Kingstons settled in Casablanca in the 1920’s. One of Gramps’s dreams of finding the “Gramps” Kingston motherlode yielded a 7,500 acre ranch with a herd of cattle, but no gold.

Rumor has it that there is some gold deep down under “the Farm”, but it is apparently so far down that maybe our great-great-grandchildren will hit pay-dirt. Through the years, generations of Kingstons have been raised in the “casa patronal” on the Farm in Casablanca. Our wine’s label is inspired by this old house still standing today. Make sure you visit Kingston Vineyards Website for more information.

Last, but not least; be certain to take a glimpse at the Chilean Wine Dinner Menu…after that you’ll be needing to call or email Mimi Gray: (630) 541-8310 Monday-Friday 9AM-5PM,

We shall Cheers to this!
