Ordóñez is the creative force behind an amazing number of Spanish wines enjoy here in the US. He's part of the group that brought us Alto Moncayo. He helped form El Nido. And most recently he gave us Triga. Tremendous values each of them and at this wine dinner priced at $75 a head (plus gratuity) he is associated with another nice value.
Legal Sea Foods is also offering a Kistler wine dinner at their Legal Harborside location in Boston.
