Dimensions of Wine through Food & Sounds
September 04, 2019 06:00 PM until September 04, 2019 10:30 PM
Join us for an interactive dinner with Master Sommelier & Musician, Serafin Alvarado, as we experience a culinary tour of the senses and emotions. Much like a book we will explore each dimension like a chapter offering a 360-degree experience where the food, music and wine will be carefully curated and handcrafted to match each dimension.
Serafin’s love of wine began more than decade ago, as a room service waiter for Hilton Hotels in his native Puerto Rico. It was the beginning of a career path that would ultimately lead him to achieve the remarkable distinction of becoming a Master Sommelier (M.S.) in 2005, achieving the status that only 105 other North Americans have reached after passing the rigorous M.S. examination.
Alvarado’s most formative wine experience came after a move to in 2001 to work alongside Chef Charlie Trotter at his famed restaurant Charlie Trotter’s. Alvarado led a team of sommeliers responsible of managing one of the finest restaurant wine programs in America, following in the footsteps of his mentors: Larry Stone, M.S. and Joe Spellman, M.S. In his five years at the restaurant, Alvarado received considerable praise for his work establishing himself as one of the top sommeliers in the nation. In October of 2005, Serafin received the Bill Rice distinguished Sommelier of the Year Award for his contribution to the culture of food & wine in the city of Chicago.Reserve
