11th Annual Charles Woodson Wine Dinner

From Cornerback to Cabernet, Charles Woodson is an unlikely winemaker but has forged a name for his wines after a successful career playing professional football. The team at Bacchus is honored to once again welcome Charles for this 11th annual special dinner where we will pair his wines with a four-course dinner.

This Saturday evening event will start at 6 PM with passed appetizers, a silent auction of signed memorabilia, and a chance to meet with Charles. While Charles will be happy to sign autographs for items won in the evening's silent auction, we kindly request no carry-in items. Following this reception, a superb four-course dinner prepared by Executive Chef Nick Wirth will be served paired along with wines from Charles Woodson Wines.

This year, in addition to the wines paired with the dinner, you have the option of adding two additional vintages.
