Uncorked: Winemakers' Dinner with the Rhone Rangers

The 6th Annual Winemakers Dinner put on by the National Museum of American History was outstanding. Incredible wines, inspiring individuals, and delicious eats! Chef Cedric Maupillier of Convivial prepared an incredible meal to pair with the American Rhone wines.

Dining at the Smithsonian Castle was incredible. I will not forget this meal! Check out more events put on by the National Museum of American History here, and don't forget to tour Julia Child's Kitchen!
