Celebrity chef Kevin Des Chenes teams up with Vermont Wine Merchants on a four-course wine dinner. During cocktail hour, guests will snack on lobster-corn fritters. Then they'll move into the dining room for a meal of grilled peaches with burrata, seared striped bass on a bed of buttered chard, braised short rib with udon, and flash-fried zeppole stuffed with apples. Thoughtfully selected wines complement the fare throughout.
