Aboveground, and in Balboa Park!

Spring has truly sprung, and our rosé collection is making its way to Le Metro subscribers across the country. As usual, however, we’ve held back some wine to share with you over dinner here in San Diego. Where better to sip rosé than outdoors, in the heart of Balboa Park?

We invite you to spend the evening with us on Saturday, 5/31 at The Prado Restaurant at Balboa Park to enjoy the selections from Volume XII: Stop and Smell the Rosé accompanied by San Diego sunshine and a delicious rosé-inspired meal.

Dinner will run from 5:00 to 7:30 pm – tickets are $85 each (all in – tax and tip included!). They may sell out quickly, so click here to purchase your seat now. We’ll see you soon!

Introducing Le Metro “Aboveground!”

We’re pleased to announce our event series for 2014: Le Metro “Aboveground.” 

Our first function of the year celebrates the last days of San Diego’s acclaimed Farm House Cafe. Farm House Wine Director Deirdre O’Dwyer will join the Le Metro team and members of our community for dinner as we sip the selections from Volume IX: Seduced by Syrah while enjoying Farm House delicacies. For $75 (all-inclusive), the meal will feature six wines, family-style appetizers, individual entrees, and desserts to share.

This dinner sold out before we were even able to announce it, as Farm House is closing at the end of the month to seek new digs and the hard-to-find wines in Volume IX will soon be gone. But we’ll be hosting intimate events like this every month now, so keep your eyes open and make sure you’ve signed up for our email bulletin (at the top of this page)! You never know where we’ll pop up next.

Ready your palate, open your mind.

Check out our friends at Farm House!
