It was a warm Thursday evening, sprinkles of rain were misting the air, and guests were gathered on the second floor balcony at the Turtle Point Clubhouse enjoying a chef’s selection of passed hors d’oeuvres and glasses of Planeta Chardonnay. Tomasso’s September Beverage Series was off to a great start; guests mingled and got to know each other as the finishing touches were set in the dining room. After everyone had arrived Chef Jonathan Williams invited them all into The Drawing Room and introduced himself and wine representative, Jason Freeman who was going to be speaking about all of the wine pairings throughout dinner.

But as the clock struck five, The Ocean Room was elated to open its doors to Marc and fellow guests for an intimate evening featuring some of the most exceptional wines represented over the last 80 years.
