Buena Vista Wine Dinner

Habitat, Fairmont Pittsburgh's signature restaurant, will host a unique wine dinner on Tuesday, April 4 at 6 p.m. Enjoy wines from Buena Vista Winery, California's first premium winery, founded in 1857 by Agoston Haraszthy, the "Count of Buena Vista." The "Count," as played by character actor George Webber, will host a vivacious evening of entertainment while sharing the Sonoma winery's rich history and varietals. Executive Chef Jason Dalling and Pastry Chef James Wroblewski have crafted a classic, five-course French menu to pair with the exclusive wines. 

The cost is $95 per person and includes a five-course dinner paired with exclusive wines and entertainment. Call 412-773-8848 to make a reservation.
