“This trip provides oenophiles and foodies with a curated and bespoke experience,” said Elizabeth Borsting, founder and organizer of Dine Out Long Beach, Restaurant Week 2.0 and principal of Elizabeth Borsting Public Relations, Inc. “It’s an opportunity to really interact with award-winning vintners, learn about their craft, and witness them in their element. Plus having Peter Stolpman welcome us to his estate is such a treat and something you wouldn’t be able to experience on your own.”
Borsting added that the journey is also meant for guests to get to know their local chefs and restaurateurs on a more personal level. For this inaugural outing Lynn and Ray Lasher will serve as hosts introducing guests to their favorite wines and experiences along the Central Coast.
“We’re looking forward to being part of this event,” said Ray Lasher. “It gives Lynn and I a chance to spend some quality time with the vintners as well as potential and established guests. We’ve been fans and friends of Peter Stolpman for many years, so we’re very pleased to introduce those joining us for this outing to his wonderful wines and hospitality.”
