Join us for a fun night of wine and tacos
According to Jeffery Plicher, professor of history at the University of Minnesota who traveled all over the world eating tacos. The origins of the taco are really unknown. “My theory is that it dates from the 18th century and the silver mines in Mexico, because in those mines the word “taco” referred to the little charges they would use to excavate the ore. These were pieces of paper that they would wrap around gunpowder and insert into the holes they carved in the rock face. When you think about it, a chicken taquito with a good hot sauce is really a lot like a stick of dynamite. “We promise we won’t blow up the kitchen making this dinner a bit different, but we guarantee a pleasant twist on the crunchy and soft styles tacos that you have come to know. Folded, wrapped and flat with fish, chicken and meat, the taco will be the main event at each course. This five course dinner will be paired beautifully with premium wines from Knapp Winery, Chateau LaFayette Reneau Wine Cellars, Zugibe Vineyards and Glenora Wine Cellars.
