Harvest the most intimate and interesting dinner experience on the East End at the HARVEST 10-Mile Dinners. These ultra-local vintner dinners will take place in August in beautiful private East End spaces, with all wines and food courses sourced from within 10 miles of diners’ plates. Feast your eyes on the 2013 schedule, below.
Attending a HARVEST 10-Mile Dinner is by-invitation-only. Most dinners are open to fewer than 20 lucky diners, and they typically sell out. Dinner proceeds benefit our four charity beneficiaries, thus a substantial portion of the ticket price is tax-deductible.
