This is short notice, but we checked, and this is the first time we’ve posted about Gary’s on Spring.
Which we’re hearing a lot about these days.
Gary’s on Spring will have a wine dinner tomorrow night featuring Leatherwood wines from South Africa, as well as dishes featuring all locally grown produce, according to a news release.
Leatherwood wines celebrate “the marriage of two continents (Robertson Valley, South Africa and Bluefield, Virgina) two ancestral farms (Prospect Wine Farm & Leatherwood Horse Farm), united by their passion for horses & wine.”
We had to ask about that, too.
Turns out the De Wet (De-VETT) family, an old family in South Africa, makes Leatherwood wine there, and tends to a horse business in Virginia.
It appears Leatherwood makes a Shiraz, a Cabernet and a Voignier.
Nic De Wet, the head of the vineyard and winery, will be on hand tomorrow night, discussing the wines.
The pice is $45 per person plus tax and gratuity, about $20 less then what these nights usually run. The catch is, the limit is 20 people.
The dinner is scheduled to start at 6 p.m.
Gary’s on Spring is at 204 S. Spring St., just east of downtown in that little Spring Street restaurant and bar cluster that, as far as we know, doesn’t really have a name.
